The Russian international joined Real Sociedad during the summer window from Dynamo Moscow in a deal worth more than £11million.

He had been close to signing for Chelsea before he agreed his deal with Sociedad, but the move collapsed due to a number of complications.

But it seems as if Zakharyan has no regrets in choosing La Liga over the Premier League as he took a swipe at Chelsea in a recent interview.

He said: “For me, it was more interesting to come to Real Sociedad than to Chelsea.

“It was also a more realistic option. I realised that I was already a Real player when I signed, I was worried about some issues during the negotiation but now… here I am.”

Rival fans were quick to jump on to social media to tease Chelsea for Zakharyan’s comments.

One said: “No one wants to go to Chelsea. They’re going down fast.”

Whilst another added: “Chelsea rejected…Painful!”

A third commented: “He doesn’t want to be 12th in the Premier League.”

Other fans were impressed by the hunger shown by Zakharyan to choose a different path.

One said: “I admire Arsen’s courage in choosing Real Sociedad over Chelsea. It’s refreshing to see players prioritise their own interests and find a more realistic option that suits them.”

And another said: “This was probably a better move for his career.”

The 20-year-old has made two appearances for Real Sociedad since joining with both coming from the bench.
