Done Deal: Chelsea signed La Liga midfielder with a €40m deal
July 2, 2019 admin 0 Comments Mateo Kovacic
Chelsea finally completed signing Real Madrid star Mateo Kovacic. Blues have problems in the midfield as Ruben Loftus-Cheek has a severe injury, Danny Drinkwater is in terrible form, Cesc Fabregas joined Monaco, Jorginho linked with several clubs, and they need back-up.
Croatia international was the perfect option in this situation as he had a fantastic season and proved his worth one more time. He signed a five-year contract with the London club, and Los Blancos will get €40m from this transfer. Milan, Roma, Arsenal and Atletico Madrid were also keen to sign him, but he preferred to remain in Chelsea.
Mateo joined Real Madrid from Inter Milan in 2015 with a €38m deal. He became a key figure for the club and won many titles including three Champions League since joining. In this campaign, Kovacic played 51 matches and made two assists in all competition. It is an impressive result, and he can improve his consequences during the next season.
Croatian footballer has contracted with the Blues until 2024, and his release clause is nearly £35m. He is a regular member of the national team squad and also helped them to finish the 2018 Mundial in a second position which is already a significant achievement for the player.
The 25-year-old midfielder already won Europa League with the London club and got the Champions League ticket. Blues also reached the Carabao Cup final, but they lost in a penalty shoot-out against Man City. He has a great chance to win other titles with Chelsea and prove his greatness one more time.
