CHELSEA fans have lashed out after the club reached a megamoney deal to sign Shakhtar Donetsk star Mykhailo Mudryk after giving up on their pursuit of Enzo Fernandez.

The Blues have hijacked Arsenal’s bid for Mudryk, 22, as they reached a staggering £97million deal with Shakhtar.

The winger is expected to put pen to paper on a seven-year deal with the West Londoners and fly to the UK to undergo a medical.

However, a section of Chelsea fans are not at all happy with that development as they insist that money should have been invested on Benfica star Fernandez, 21.

Graham Potter’s side was at loggerheads with the Portuguese giants as they refused to pay the midfielder’s £105m release clause and failed in their bid to negotiate.

That was after the Argentina international’s stunning 2022 World Cup campaign that saw him win the title and being awarded as the tournament’s best young player.

One fan tweeted: “Mudryk‘s worth €100m but apparently Enzo Fernandez isn’t worth €120m. Todd Boehly. Genius.”

Another posted: “Chelsea would rather pay £85m to hijack Mudryk from Arsenal than bring in Enzo Fernandez. Misplaced priority.”

A third commented: “Banter aside, add a little extra and go get Fernandez man. Let Mudryk go to Arsenal.”

That supporter said: “We are going to pay 100M for a player who prefers Arsenal (Mudryk) and we are not going to pay 120M for one of the best players in the world cup (Enzo Fernandez) who WANTED TO GET TO CHELSEA.

“It’s a shame, this club is going to s**t if we don’t change our president and coach.”

And that one tweeted: “Why are we spending €100m on Mudryk when the Midfield needs more attention?This should be spent on Enzo Fernandez.”

Mudryk has long teased a move to Arsenal having openly discussed his desire to join as well as posting pictures watching the Gunners’ games on social media.

But it now appears the Ukraine international is on his way to Chelsea.
