Chelsea to announce Mateo Kovacic deal 'in the next few hours'

Real are prepared to allow wantaway Kovacic, who himself skipped a training session with the Spanish club, to join Chelsea on a season-long loan on the proviso they get Courtois.

The Croatia midfielder has demanded a transfer and Real are in talks to send him to Chelsea on an initial loan.

Kovacic has also been linked with Manchester United, Manchester City and Tottenham but the Blues are winning the race here.

Mateo Kovacic remains "at war" with Real Madrid, however he did return to training this Tuesday morning at the Ciudad Deportiva de Valdebebas.

The player will be hoping to rediscover the form he showed in Italy whilst on loan at the London club.

Now, further reports claim that Suning are ready to fund the move with Modric set to be offered a four-year deal, before moving to Jiangsu Suning as part of the agreement.

Modric then went into the World Cup in buoyant move, and he managed to lead his Croatian side to the World Cup final.

New Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has already splashed out on Jorginho but he admitted last week he wanted another midfielder to compliment the Italian global and N'Golo Kante in the middle of the park.

But now they are seemingly settled in for a deal to bring Kovacic to Stamford Bridge.

The midfielder is desperate to leave the Bernabeu this summer in search of regular game time.

With a complete skillset and the ability to play in a variety of different midfield roles, he is an excellent fit for the style of football that Sarri wants to instil into the Chelsea team.

The 24-year-old is keen to play more regularly than he does for Real; he started in 10 of his 21 LaLiga appearances.

A move has been agreed by the player, Real and Chelsea, with all three parties happy with the outcome.
