Spanish report reveals price Chelsea need to pay to sign midfielder from Real Madrid

Spanish publication El Confidencial have attempted to offer some insight into Florentino Perez’s plans for the upcoming summer – and some of the information is of interest to Chelsea.

Chelsea and Real Madrid could soon find themselves on the negotiating table – and not over Eden Hazard. Rather, in hope of reaching a decision as to where Mateo Kovacic’s future lies.

Kovacic has spent the season on-loan at Chelsea, becoming an important member of Maurizio Sarri’s squad. He’s yet to successfully nail down a starting spot, but has enjoyed plenty of game-time.

It’s unclear whether he has done enough for Chelsea to be convinced that he’s worth purchasing on a permanent basis, but El Confidencial have revealed the figure we’d have to pay if we decided he has.

The report claims that Perez is hoping to bank €50M (£42.6M) through the sale of Kovacic, whether that be to Chelsea or any other interested party. It’s unclear if our transfer ban could prohibit the purchase.

It’s very much a matter of opinion whether Kovacic is worth that cash. We’re inclined to believe that Sarri, who has used him plenty, would be willing to pay it – would you, Blues?
