Chelsea contacts Real Madrid to discuss Kovacic transfer deal

Published

on

Chelsea has opened talks with Real Madrid to seal a permanent move for midfielder, Mateo Kovacic.

Kovacic signed for Madrid in 2015 from Inter Milan but has struggled to get himself a spot in the clubs starting XI.

The Croatia international signed a season-long loan deal with the Blues during the summer transfer window and has impressed under the club manager, Maurizio Sarri, making 20 appearances in all competitions.

Sarri is said to be keen for Kovacic to sign a permanent deal at Stamford Bridge and Chelsea have contacted Real Madrid to discuss a possible move, according to the Evening Standard.

The midfielder admitted he wanted to leave the Laliga giants in the summer to play more football and appears to be relishing his role in west London.

Speaking earlier in the season, the Croatian midfielder spoke of his joy at joining Chelsea.

“I’m really happy at Chelsea,” Metro UK quoted Kovacic as saying.

“The city is amazing, the fans are great, the stadium, everything is nice, so I could imagine myself here.

“After two years of struggling in Madrid, playing and then not playing, it was difficult. You don’t have the confidence, you don’t try the things you know.

“This was my decision to go. Chelsea came, I spoke with the coach and the club. It was definitely just Chelsea for me. I wanted to come here and I am happy that it happened.”

Chelsea, who are currently third in the Premier League, face Wolves this weekend.

Chelsea boss, Maurizio Sarri, has provided update on his team ahead of their Europa League clash with MOL Vidi on Thursday.

Sarri said Victor Moses, Cahill, Kovacic will not be in the squad due to injury.

He also said that goalkeeper Kepa, Rudigar, Azpilicueta, Kante and Hazard will be rested.

Sarri said this in a prematch press conference on Wednesday evening ahead of the game.

He said, “The last match was really very difficult, because they defended very well, very low in density. It was very difficult for us to score.

“Maybe tomorrow will be a very different match because they are fighting for qualification.

“I think they need to win tomorrow. So maybe the match will be really very different.

“I don’t know the starting XI for tomorrow. I can tell you that I decided that the players who played for three matches in six days in the last week have to rest in this match and so I am talking about Kepa, Rudiger, Azpilicueta, Kante and Hazard.

“Then we have three injuries. Kovacic, Cahill and Moses. All the other players are here, of course.”

AC Milan are keen to sign Fabregas in January and the Blues have looked at Barca’s disgruntled Suarez.

Chelsea boss, Maurizio Sarri does not want the 31-year-old to go, but the Spaniard wants more football than he is getting at the moment.

Sarri has told the club’s board that he does not want Fabregas to go until a direct replacement has been sorted out as he is his only true cover for Jorginho.

However, Fabregas has made only four Premier League appearances this season, starting only in the recent defeat away to Wolves.

Suarez wants to leave Barcelona after making only one substitute appearance in La Liga this season, and would cost around £15million.

The Blues value Fabregas at around £11m.
