Chelsea fans react to Mateo Kovacic transfer report

Chelsea have dropped off the pace slightly in the Premier League in recent times, which has had a negative affect on their title quest as Liverpool and Manchester City continue to dominate. 

Roman Abramovich enjoyed a rather successful summer transfer window as he signed the likes of Kepa and Jorginho on permanent deals, with Robert Green joining on a free transfer and Mateo Kovacic on loan.

Interestingly, the Evening Standard has reported that Chelsea have begun discussions with Real Madrid about signing midfielder Mateo Kovacic.

Chelsea are willing to negotiate, having seen enough from Kovacic this season to explore whether an agreement can be struck.

The Croatian international, who is valued at £27 million (by Transfermarkt), joined the Chelsea on a season-long loan in August and has since established himself as a first-team regular at Stamford Bridge.

Spanish giants Real Madrid bought the midfielder from Inter Milan for around £26.7 million in 2015 and will not let him go unless they receive a significant fee.

Interestingly, the report caused quite a stir on Twitter as a number of Chelsea fans expressed their disappointment over the news, which was shared on Evening Standard reporter Simon Johnson’s personal Twitter account.

Here’s a look at exactly what supporters had to say about the report:
