Quoting from the Daily Mai, Chelsea is ready to allow its players to freely talk to Manchester City.
Mauricio Pochettino has officially been announced as Chelsea head coach next season. After Pochettino took power, the first thing he needed to do was stabilize the Blues staff.
Many stars are in danger of leaving Stamford Bridge. In a latest information quoted from the Daily Mail, the London team is ready to say goodbye to Mateo Kovacic.
Specifically, Chelsea allowed Kovacic to freely negotiate with Manchester City . The transfer fee has not been agreed, but the Premier League champions are increasing their focus to sign the Croatian midfielder.
Last month, Mail Sport confirmed that Kovacic had emerged as a top target for Pep Guardiola and City started tracking the former Inter Milan man’s every move.
Kovacic has 1 year left on his contract with the host club, but the two sides have not taken another step to extend the new agreement. Understandably, Chelsea facilitated the star born in 1994 to talk to another team.
During a five-year stint in west London, Kovacic made 221 appearances in all competitions, winning the Champions League, Europa League, Club World Cup and UEFA Super Cup.
