Matro Kovacic will likely depart Chelsea in the summer. The £100,000-a-week Manchester United target will have a year left on his contract, with the Blues eager to cash in amid growing interest.
Chelsea are already looking at new midfield options to replace the Croatian, who has not been a consistent starter this season. Former manager Thomas Tuchel would like Bayern to sign Kovacic, but there’s strong interest in the £100,000-a-week Manchester United target from Premier League clubs.
The report insists there’s a ‘concrete possibility’ for Kovacic to leave Chelsea in the summer. The London club reportedly demands £50 million for the 29-year-old, which may seem unprecedented for those interested in the £100,000-a-week Manchester United target. He said, “Mateo Kovacic is very likely to leave Chelsea in the summer.
“At the moment, PSG are very interested in him, and the evolution that should take place at the Parisian club in the summer could start with signing the former Inter and Real Madrid player. Manchester United hold a serious interest in the Croatian and could look to discuss terms with Chelsea.
The suggestion is that the Blues might look to recoup most of the £40 million they paid to sign him. While Kovacic might have clubs like Manchester City also chasing his signature, there’s no way they or anyone else will pay £50 million. Kovavic will likely evaluate his offers, as he might look for a considerable pay rise at his next club. That may become a possibility at the Manchester Clubs, Bayern or PSG.
