‘A Ridiculous Asking Price’ ‘Never Worth £50m’ Fans On Twitter React To Chelsea Transfer Decision

Real Madrid have set an asking price of £50m for Chelsea to sign Mateo Kovacic this summer, according to reports in England.

The Blues can secure the Croatian on a permanent basis, despite the club’s transfer ban, because the midfielder is already registered with the team.

However, after being told about Real’s valuation, Chelsea are believed to be close to opting against signing Kovacic.

Fans on Twitter believe that if the Blues do decide to send the 25-year-old back to Madrid, it would be the correct decision:

With Tiemoue Bakayoko returning from a loan spell at AC Milan, and Mason Mount a candidate for a first-team place next season, keeping Kovacic doesn’t seem to be a top priority.

Manager Maurizio Sarri was one of the player’s leading advocates, but with the Italian poised to join Juventus, the Croatian international could now end up back at the Bernabeu.

Inter Milan are believed to be waiting in the wings to sign the player if Chelsea do decide against keeping him at the club.
