Chelsea have been in the news in recent days due to their managerial situation. The London club had seen manager Maurizio Sarri leave for Juventus in a highly anticipated move.
This coupled with the transfer ban made many to question the direction the club is taking. However according to reports from Spain the club could sign Real Madrid star Mateo Kovacic this summer.
Kovacic had spent last season on loan at the club and there had been reports that Chelsea were willing to let him go this summer. The transfer ban by FIFA has changed everything and Chelsea have changed their stance on the player.
According to Sport Witness , Chelsea are preparing to table a bid worth €55 million. Kovacic is regarded as a quality midfielder and was a regular for the club last season. His dribbling ability and defensive work rate made him the go to player alongside Jorginho and Kante in the midfield.
The Croatia international made 51 appearances for the Blues in all competitions winning the Europa League.
Chelsea would be smart to sign the player as he remains a good player capable of developing into a world-class performer.
