CAST9JA: Chelsea Agree £40.3m On Kovacic Deal With Real Madrid Amid Lampard Talks


The Croatia midfielder is set to have a permanent stay at Stamford Bridge after which a fee was agreed between teams to make his loan move permanent deal. Chelsea have agreed a fee of £40.3 million ($51m/€45m) with Real Madrid to secure the service of  Mateo Kovacic’s long-term future at the club.
Chelsea have waited until the last minute to finalise a deal for Real Madrid midfielder Kovacic as the deadline to complete a deal was earmarked for June 30 this year, but can now prepare for serious contract talks.
This happens after Derby County given permission to the Blues to open discussions with Frank Lampard about
the club manager’s role, with the former Chelsea star expected to return to west London to replace Maurizio Sarri which has now become the new Juventus manager.                                               Chelsea can agree the deal for Mateo Kovacic’s despite FIFA imposing a one year transfer ban on signing senior players this year February because the Blues already held registration
documents from his loan spell at the club last season.
The transfer ban are likely to remain in place after the club decided against appealing for provisional measures to Court Arbitration of Sport (CAS) to hold the ban.
Sarri had already wanted Kovacic, who played 51 times during his loan spell with the Premier League club Chelsea  last season, but the Croatia international was then left unsure of his career as Chelsea manager moved to Juventus .
Better for Chelsea, the 25-year-old midfielder was keen to stay with the
Londons and his imminent move will make things easy on the new manager, with respect to England International midfielder Ruben Loftus- Cheek which is  set to miss the beginning of next season thanks to a ruptured Achilles tendon.
Real Madrid, meanwhile, have to raise funds having spent in the region of €300 million (£270m/$340m) on
five players this summer, including €100m on Chelsea playmaker Eden Hazard.
They still want to sign Paul Pogba from Manchester United also a move for Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar is also on ground, and as such players have to be sold to ensure the required finances are in the right place.
