Brighton owner speaks out on Manchester City-linked Marc Cucurella’s future

9 July 2022 0 By Total Football News

Brighton’s owner has recently been discussing Manchester City target and Seagulls star, Marc Cucurella.

The Spaniard has seen himself linked with a number of top clubs recently, buy mainly Manchester City and Chelsea.

And the Brighton defender has only fuelled speculation over a potential Amex exit in an interview at the end of May.

When discussing his future, he said: “If the opportunity arises, you have to take advantage of it”, he told Gerard Romero. ‘There are teams that you can’t say no to.”

Elsewhere, it was recently reported that a deal to take Marc Cucurella to Manchester City was close to being completed, with personal terms agreed and the two clubs in advanced negotiations regarding a fee.

This would be Manchester City’s third summer signing, following on from Erling Haaland and Kalvin Phillips, rounding off, on paper, a very solid transfer window.

However, Brighton’s owner has all but killed off any hope Manchester City fans had of wrapping up a deal for the defender soon.

Speaking recently, Tony Bloom was full of praise for Cucurella whilst adding that Brighton have not received a bid for him:

“Marc is a tremendous player, a tremendous person. He’s brilliant for the dressing room,” he said. “The players love him, Graham and the coaches love him, I love him, the fans love him.

“He was unbelievably good last season, his first season in the Premier League. We’re hoping for more to come and we haven’t had a bid for him.”
