Ukraine wonderkid Mudryk Chooses Arsenal Over Real Madrid


In a rather cryptic message to his potential employers, Arsenal, who he has been strongly linked with a move to, Shakhtar Donetsk winger, Mykhaylo Mudryk, has revealed in an interview, that he would rather be in the starting eleven for Arsenal, than play a bench role for European giants, Real Madrid, who are also linked with him.

The 21-year-old winger has been linked with a move to the Emirates stadium, like many other suitors including Real Madrid, however, the Ukrainian has shown a strong indication that he prefers a move to North London.

The winger scored 5 goals in the Champions League group stage before Shakhtar Donetsk were eliminated on the final matchday.

He has had a total of 16 goal involvements in 16 games this season after breaking through last season and is no doubt on the radar of clubs.

He highlighted the dynamism of Arsenal’s style of play as a factor in determining his choice of club at the end.

Mudryk also said that he engages with the fans of the Gunners on social media, and a huge number of them urge him to make the move to their club.

The €54 million rated winger stated in a YouTube interview with Vlada Sedan that, “From a purely hypothetical perspective if there was the option of being a bench player for Real Madrid or a starter for Arsenal, I’d probably choose Arsenal,”

“But it’s a tough question and involves a lot of factors in my answer. I would first want to know from the head coach that even if I wasn’t a guaranteed starter, that I’d receive a chance.

“Essentially I need to hear directly from the manager what he envisages my role in his side to be.

“The team’s style of play will play a role. It’s very important to me.”

“I check on them on MyScore and know I can check on them when they’re playing. I also watch them too,” he continued.

” They are a very dynamic side, in general not just in controlling possession but also in scoring goals.”

The youngster also revealed that he spoke to Brentford, Nice and Bayer Leverkusen, but the moves never materialized which got him upset.

However, he could make a dream move to The Emirates if Arsenal pay his asking price.
