On Wednesday, during a press conference with the national team, Mateo Kovačić hinted that he would be leaving Chelsea, and it seems that it is indeed going to happen.
Fabrizio Romano brings the news that Mateo Kovačić has reached an agreement with Manchester City and that it is now up to the clubs, City and Chelsea, to negotiate the transfer fee.
This is expected to happen after the Champions League final, which Manchester City will be playing against Inter this Saturday.
According to Romano's information, Chelsea are willing to sell the Croatian midfielder, and Kovačić is ready for a new challenge in his career, especially after a rather disappointing season in the Stamford Bridge club's shirt.
Kovačić (29) joined Chelsea from Real Madrid in the summer of 2019 in a transfer worth €45 million. Since then, he has played 221 matches for the London club, scoring six goals and providing 15 assists. He has won the Champions League, Europa League, UEFA Super Cup, and FIFA Club World Cup with Chelsea.
