The club made this statement on Wednesday night following news of Cucurella’s sale.
Earlier in the evening, various new media had reported that an agreement had been reached between Chelsea FC and Brighton for the sale of the Spaniard.
The fee quoted was £52.5million on a 6year deal until June 2028.

“Contrary to inaccurate reports from numerous media outlets this evening, no agreement has been reached with any club for the sale of Marc Cucurella,” an official statement from Brighton read via their official website.
This latest twist puts a setback to Chelsea’s pursuit of a left sided defender.
The London club had already agreed personal terms with Cucurella a few days ago and looked set to hijack the deal from previous suitors, Manchester City.
