‘We Can Live Without Him’ ‘Sign Him Already’ Chelsea Fans On Social Media Disagree Over £45m Deal For Midfielder As Deadline Looms

Chelsea have until June 30th to make a decision on midfielder Mateo Kovacic’s future, according to reports.

The club’s transfer ban prevents the Blues from registering new players but as the Croatian is already at the club, they can make the loan move permanent or keep him for another year.

Real Madrid reportedly want €50m (£45m) for Kovacic and some fans on Twitter think that would be too much to justify keeping him:

However, other supporters believe he should remain at Stamford Bridge:

A lot will depend on Frank Lampard. The Derby boss is said to be close to being appointed manager at Chelsea, and he could have the final say on the 25-year-old’s future.

Former head coach Maurizio Sarri wanted Kovacic to stay, while the player is believed to be keen on remaining in London, but Lampard may have other plans.

If the Croatian international is allowed to leave, it is believed that former club Inter Milan could be his destination.
