Chelsea have second thoughts over Kovacic Chelsea are having second thoughts about signing Mateo Kovacic now that Maurizio Sarri is on the verge of joining Juventus.

Kovacic joined Chelsea on a season-long loan from Real Madrid last summer and because he is already registered as their player, he won’t be considered a new addition to the squad if he stays on.

Real Madrid are under pressure to start offloading players having already spent a minimum of £150m on Luka Jovic and Hazard alone.

But the agent of Tiemoue Bakayoko, who joined Chelsea from Marseille for £40m in 2017, has already claimed the France international is returning to Stamford Bridge from a loan spell at AC Milan and he can potentially fill some of the void.

If Chelsea want to keep Kovacic, they have to finalise it before the end of this month because his registration will return to Real Madrid in July.

The Blues can buy the midfielder on a permanent basis from Real Madrid this summer even if their appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport over FIFA’s two window transfer ban fails or isn’t frozen in time.

The west London club will also consider including Mason Mount following his impressive spell at Derby this term.
