Blues eye permanent deal for Kovacic – Good or bad?


Reports are rife that Chelsea have reached an agreement with Real Madrid for the permanent transfer of loanee Mateo Kovacic to Stamford Bridge.

The decision on making the deal happen appears to be receiving plaudits from a good number of Chelsea fans in light of the two-window transfer ban that is set to hit the club.

This is obviously a good decision as the dynamic Croatia international midfielder is the only player the Blues can sign presently considering that he was registered as a player last season.

Chelsea now have enough bodies in midfield, so apparently, the midfield is no major cause for concern as the Blues currently boast the likes of N’Golo Kante, Jorginho, an injured Ruben Loftus-Cheek who’s out till November, Ross Barkley, Tiemoue Bakayoko, Ethan Ampadu, and possibly, Mason Mount.

Regardless, Chelsea need more bodies, especially in an attack that has an aging Willian and Pedro who’ll be supported by young Christian Pulisic and Callum Hudson-Odoi.

The transfer ban, if not delayed, won’t allow for any new players to be added to the squad ahead of the 2019/20 season. Hopefully, the club finds a way around this.

Meanwhile, the decision to acquire Mateo Kovacic permanently is a wise one although the price tag of 50 million euros on the player is seemingly high. This shouldn’t be an issue going by the club’s situation, and by how players of less quality have been signed for bigger sums.

Mateo Kovacic is not a man for the goals but can provide dynamism in the Chelsea midfield as he can slot in anywhere in the middle of the pack, adding more depth that will be needed ahead of the competitions next season.

Mateo Kovacic is good with the ball on his feet, can beat a man, and also lay inch perfect decisive passes. Hopefully, he comes up with his best that saw Real Madrid sign him from Inter Milan now that he’s been signed permanently by Chelsea, a club he was eager to remain with.
