Baffled Piers Morgan cannot believe Mudryk is going to Chelsea

Piers Morgan has led the reactions online after Chelsea beat Arsenal to signing Mykhailo Mudryk from Shakhtar Donetsk.

The Ukrainian has been on the radar of top European clubs for a long time now and Arsenal were favourites to add him to their squad.

The Gunners had tabled three bids for his signature, with everyone hoping the third offer would be good enough for the 22-year-old.

However, Chelsea made a last-ditch entry into the race and saw off Mikel Arteta’ side, with Mudryk expected to sign as the Blues player before today finishes.

Morgan was shocked to learn that Chelsea was winning the race and initially tweeted

“How can this be happening? Ridiculous that Arsenal let this transfer saga drag on so long we’ve apparently ended up losing him.”

He then posted another tweet: “I’m irrationally annoyed about this Mudryk fiasco. 

“If Arsenal wants to win the League this season, we can’t faff around for weeks on key targets and then get outflanked/outbid at the last minute. Looks weak. 

“We must buy another top-class striker asap.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Having pursued Mudryk for much of the last few months and the attacker has flirted with the idea of joining us, it is shocking that Chelsea has beat us to his signature.

Every Arsenal fan will be sad about this, but now the club must turn its attention towards signing another attacker before the transfer window closes.

  1. As predictably as cold weather in winter, up pops that arch self pubicist Piers Morgan , whenever it appears Arsenal have not done HIS bidding. Of course Morgan has a hide as thick as his brain and actually thrives on all publicity, so he will love being talked about, as ever.

    As you see, I have fallen into his trap. I urge no one else to do so!

  2. Bought Fofana for 70m out of desperation who is 3 time below both Saliba Gabriel Ben White when it comes to playing ability lity
    Bought Sterling who is now a shadow of himself
    Havarts another one
    And now here comes Mudryk who everyone seems to know his ability not knowing that Premier League is just a different League to Ukraine League if the above players considered to be world class are struggling now at Chelsea same will apply to Mudryk Just like what is happening to Gokbo at Liverpool two teams that are out of form trying to buy themselves up the table not knowing that Arsenal is currently the head of the table the chief chef of this league

    1. @Naftali
      Was also Lukaki not around £100 million many back and now it’s like he was never near StamfordBridge in history?

      Such indiscretion with the value of player purchases must be a shame to the sport

  3. Why would anyone listen to the man who only a couple of weeks ago was urging Arsenal to sign ‘Ronaldo’ !!!

  4. Piers Morgan got it wrong again the way he did with our coach. Can he spend 2mollion pounds on a Peugeot car instead of a Mercedeez car? In four months time, towards the end of the season, we will see and know who made a mistake. Good luck to MM and Chelsea.

  5. PM should know better! You can’t just buckle to silly amounts of cash on a player who is yet to prove he is worth 10 million pounds, never mind 90 million! PM always seems to confuse money and status with sense and a moral standing. Chelsea have done what we all knew they would. Acting on impulse because of desperation! Good luck to them but the only team progressing in the EPL is Arsenal! Mudryk was only ever more motivated buy cash. As was his club and agent. Greed all round then!

  6. I’ve calmed down a bit since last night when I was surprised and annoyed in equal measure at the turn of events

    In the cold light of day, it looks like MM would have gone to any premier league club for the right money. Chelsea have offered that to him and SD as the selling club, so we missed the boat.

    Time will tell if we dodged a bullet or missed out on the next world super star.
    In the meantime, Chelsea are very much in the doldrums and I hope they stay there – not that I’m bitter and twisted of course!

    The transfer fee was mighty high and that gave me the eebie jeebies.

    A lot of hysteria surrounded this potential signing and yet, other signings popped up with little or no fanfare. Partey springs to mind. Hopefully now that MM is history we can concentrate on the game later this afternoon and Edu and Arteta sourcing somebody – anybody- that fits the bill before the window shuts
