Chelsea Transfer News: Thomas Tuchel, manager of Bayern Munich, is apparently interested in reuniting with Mateo Kovacic, a player for Chelsea. After this season, the Croatian will enter the last 12 months of his contract at Stamford Bridge, and the German coach is well aware of this.
Christian Falk, a journalist, claims that Tuchel wants to bring in Kovacic. The midfielder’s contract discussions with Chelsea have apparently stagnated, and the club would be willing to move him.
The midfielder has attracted attention from a number of teams, including Manchester City, Liverpool, and Manchester United. City, coached by Pep Guardiola, has already contacted the player’s agency and is in the driver’s seat to sign the Croatian international.
Chelsea Transfer News: Tuchel has asked Chelsea to get Mateo Kovacic
The Blues are now waiting for the conclusion of the manager search before making a decision on Kovacic’s contract. Mauricio Pochettino is in the driver’s seat and will play a significant part in the midfielder’s destiny.
Mateo Kovacic has expressed his desire to remain at Chelsea. He is really happy in London and has no intention of ever leaving.
The Croatian international first joined Chelsea on loan in 2018, with the option to make the move permanent the following season. Since then, he has won the UEFA Champions League with the club and appeared in 217 games, scoring six goals and assisting fourteen more.
He said: “I’ve been here for five years already! Time goes by so quickly, and I’ve been at Chelsea the longest of all the clubs. I really, really feel like I’m at home. London has nothing not to love about it. The fact that my family likes it makes it easy for me. The food is fine, but not as good as in Italy or Spain. But London is pretty cool. My son goes to a nursery school in London. He likes it there because everyone is so friendly. I have nothing bad to say about London or England. We’re really happy to be here.”
