Michaelo Modric casually posed for the first pictures in the new jersey before introducing himself to the fans. Draped in the Ukrainian flag, the 22-year-old walked onto Stamford Bridge during the half-time break in the 1-0 win over Crystal Palace and enjoyed a standing ovation from the crowd.
In the future, Mudryk should go there for Chelsea and ensure successful times in West London with other newcomers.
National team player Kai Havertz paid a lot for this hope. The Blues, who have been very generous this winter, will funnel up to €100m including bonus payments to the then-relatively unknown Ukrainian from Shakhtar Donetsk.

Modric, who has signed a contract until the summer of 2031, is supposed to revive a sometimes weak attack with just 22 goals in 19 league matches with his goal threatening. In any case, the eight-time Ukrainian national player has positive signs.
Modric is the top scorer in Ukraine
In the current Champions League season, the fast attacking player scored three goals in six matches, assisted two more and played a key role in Shakhtar’s qualification to the Round of 16. In the Ukrainian league is the top scorer.
The fact that Chelsea are paying big bucks for it isn’t new either. This winter, the injury-plagued 10th-placed has signed Joao Felix (on loan), Benoit Badiachel, David Fofana and Andre Santos, spending a total of around €140m.
In terms of sports, the Champions League spots are already far behind with a ten-point deficit. That’s why it now has to be really big bag use, but team manager Graham Potter has already warned.
“I don’t think we need to be particularly careful,” Potter said, “but I think you just have to understand we don’t have about 10 players available. Obviously you can’t sign players to replace them because you end up with a squad of 30.” You have to do the right thing and the January window is complicated.”
Competitive conflict in attack
Especially in attack, there are now many players, including Mudryk, who want to be in the starting line-up.
In addition to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Hakim Ziyech, for example, Havertz and Felix on loan now have to fight hard for playing times and draw attention to themselves with goals.
Is the big shopping spree now over?
This does not seem so. Chelsea have already expressed interest in midfielder Moises Caicedo and winger Leandro Trossard from Potter’s former clubs Brighton & Hove Albion, according to recent rumours.
