Chelsea plan to have Mykhailo Mudryk in stands at Stamford Bridge for Palace game before £97m transfer completes medical | The Sun
CHELSEA reportedly plan to welcome Mykhailo Mudryk to Stamford Bridge when they take on Crystal Palace today.
The winger is close to sealing a £97million move to Chelsea.
And he is set to watch the Blues take on Palace from the stands as Graham Potter's side look to end a run of one win in ten league games, according to the Daily Mail.
Mudryk is also set to undergo a medical before flying back to Shakhtar Donetsk's training camp in Turkey to finalise the deal.
Once the necessary paperwork is completed Mudryk will be officially unveiled as a Chelsea player, though the club has already dropped hints that he has signed.
Chelsea's official Instagram account added Mudryk's username to their bio, while Shakhtar also toyed with fans by posting a cryptic tweet.

That came after Mudryk shared photos of himself watching Arsenal take on West Ham and Brighton and called Mikel Arteta a "great manager".
