Real Madrid midfielder Mateo Kovacic has revealed his desire to leave the Santiago Bernabeu this summer.
Kovacic has won nine pieces of silverware in just three-years as a Real Madrid player, including a hat-trick of Champions Leagues.
Despite Los Blancos’ success with him as part of the squad, he has not played a starring role in any of those triumphs. Kovacic has merely operated as a squad player.
At 24-years-old, it’s time for the Croatian to kick-on with his career. It looks as though he intends to do so.
Kovacic is quoted by Marca revealing that he will look to leave Real Madrid this summer:
“I want to play more and it’s better for me to leave Real Madrid. love football and I love being on the pitch, so I want the opportunity to be a starter. I’m not happy when I’m not playing.”
Diario Gol linked Chelsea with a move to sign Kovacic at the tail end of last summer. Could our interest in signing him be revived this time around?
It would seem absurd for Chelsea to pass-up as good an opportunity as this, especially considering that Cesc Fabregas has just one-year to run on his contract.
What do you think, Blues?
