Chelsea have been told exactly how much they’ll have to pay in order to sign Real Madrid midfielder Mateo Kovacic this summer.

Kovacic is exactly the profile of player that we ought to be after. Not only is he the ideal successor to Cesc Fabregas in the middle of the park, but his best days are very much ahead of him.

The Croatian has also revealed his desire to leave the Santiago Bernabeu this summer. He acknowledges that he needs to leave in order to further his career.

However, Kovacic’s public come and get me plea has not changed Real Madrid’s stance. They will still demand a huge fee in exchange for the 24-year-old.

According to Sky Italy, Real Madrid’s asking price is set at €100M. It seems unlikely that Chelsea would be willing to pay that, even if we were able to shift Danny Drinkwater and recoup what we signed him for last summer.
