MYKHAILO MUDRYK’S Chelsea shirt number has allegedly been leaked after he completed his move.
The winger has officially sealed his £97million transfer to Chelsea after the Blues usurped their London rivals Arsenal.
The 22-year-old is at Stamford Bridge this afternoon in a VIP box to watch the Blues take on Crystal Palace as Graham Potter's side look to end their dismal run.
Chelsea's official Instagram account had already added Mudryk's username to their bio, while Shakhtar also toyed with fans by posting a cryptic tweet.
But the deal was finally announced this afternoon after he completed a medical.
Now Fabrizio Romano has claimed that he will wear the No.15 shirt for his new club.
