Chelsea will reportedly be able to sign Real Madrid loanee Matteo Kovacic The duo are currently on loan at Stamford Bridge from Juventus and Real MadridThe Blues have been handed a two-season transfer window ban by FIFABut they are reportedly confident of signing both players despite their embargo 

Chelsea will be able to sign Real Madrid loanee Matteo Kovacic this summer despite their two-window transfer ban, according to reports.

The Blues saw the summer transfer window open on Thursday without the ability to recruit any new players following a FIFA-imposed ban.

Kovacic is on loan at Chelsea from Spanish giants Real but unlike fellow loanee Gonzalo Higuain, his loan agreement does not contain a permanent signing clause. 

But according to Goal, the Stamford Bridge club are confident that they can sign Kovacic from Real Madrid without contravening their transfer embargo. 

Chelsea will reportedly be able to sign Gonzalo Higuain and Matteo Kovacic permanently

Chelsea tried and failed to overturn the ban by appealing to football's governing body and now they intend to take the case to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).  

Sportmail revealed earlier this week that Higuain will be returning to Turin this summer as Chelsea have no intention of keeping hold of the Juventus striker.

Higuain has scored only five goals in 21 appearances since arriving in January on a six-month deal.

There is an option to extend the loan for another season for £15.7million or buy him outright for £31.6m.

But it appears the Blues are reportedly exploring the possibility of converting Kovacic's loan deal into a permanent switch, without needing to register the player on the electronic TMS system used to process international transfers.
