Chelsea are yet to give up on their mission to bring Real Madrid and Croatian midfielder Matteo Kovacic to the Stamford Bridge Stadium this summer, according to Italian media Calciomercato.
The striker is set to move out of Santiago Bernabeu this summer as he searches for a new club, where he would be given quality time on the pitch in the coming season.
Kovacic revealed to reporters in May before the world cup that he could be saying his goodbye to the Santiago Bernabeu outfits this summer after the world cup due to his status as a bit-part player during Zidane’s reign at the Spanish capital.
However, report claimed via the Tutto Sports, last week, that the Red Devils are showing interest in his signature and they are willing to bring him to the club as their fourth summer signing.
Despite Mourinho’s early interest in the Croatian midfielder and striker, the Portuguese manager is set to miss out on his signature as report suggests that the player didn’t see himself flourishing in Mourinho’s team due to the Portuguese tactical approach to games.
With the player’s assertion, the latest reports emanating from Stamford Bridge via the Daily Mail suggest that Chelsea president Roman Abramovic is ready to lure the player to his squad as he looks to provide a title-winning squad for Maurizio Sarri, who took over from Antonio Conte last month.
