Chelsea have second thoughts over permanent Kovacic deal

Chelsea are having doubts about hiring Mateo Kovacic now that Maurizio Sarri is about to join Juventus.

The Blues can buy Real Madrid's stocking this summer, even if their appeal to the Sports Arbitration Court over the ban on transfer of two FIFA windows fails
 or is not frozen in time.

As Kovacic, who joined Chelsea on a loan from a Real Madrid season last summer, is already registered on the team, he will not be considered a new addition if he
 continues.

The Croatia international was a regular member of the first team under Sarri, making a total of 51 appearances in all competitions, but regularly failed to impress,
 ending with a terrible record for the campaign of only two assists and not a single goal for his name .

Despite this, Sarri was anxious for the 25-year-old to be part of his plans for the next term, but the deal is in doubt now that the Italian is going to Juventus.

Chelsea have to make concessions to the fact that Ruben Loftus-Cheek should go out for the rest of the year with a Achilles tendon rupture and that they will try to
 unload Danny Drinkwater again after a terrible two-year period in west London.

But the agent of Tiemoue Bakayoko, who has moved from Marseille to Chelsea for 40 million pounds in 2017, has already stated that the French team is returning to
 Stamford Bridge due to a loan at Milan and it can fill a little of the void.

The West London club will also consider including Mason Mount after their impressive Derby period in this period.

If Chelsea want to keep Kovacic, he should finalize it before the end of this month because his registration will return to Real Madrid in July. As Standard Sport
 revealed on Friday, Chelsea insisted significantly on leaving it out of talks with the La Liga club about the sale of Eden Hazard.

Inter Milan, where Kovacic played between 2013 and 2015, took note of Chelsea's hesitation and opened negotiations with Real to repurchase him.

Real Madrid are under pressure to start unloading players who have already spent a minimum of £ 150 million with only Luka Jovic and Hazard.

The Spanish giants have made a £ 50 million valuation on Kovacic but will do well to attract such a fee, given the player's performances.

Chelsea also have the issue of not knowing for sure who will be the replacement for Sarri and if he wants the player in his squad.

It is believed that Sarri has closed a two-year contract, with an option for another 12 months, to go to Juventus. He told Chelsea his desire to go out in a meeting
 two days after winning the Europa League final.
