Chelsea Star Demands Exit as Tuchel Eyes Cut-Price Raid with Boehly’s Backing

Mateo Kovacic wants to leave Chelsea this summer and rejoin Thomas Tuchel at Bayern Munich.

Despite being an important player for the German coach while at Stamford Bridge, the 28-year-old has made only 15 Premier League starts this season.

It appears likely that Kovacic will be one of the stars cut off Chelsea’s roster as the club looks to balance its budget at the end of the season.

The Blues’ agreement with the Croatian international is scheduled to end in June 2024. Bayern may thus be able to acquire him this summer for a discount.

 Kovacic and Chelsea are now in negotiations for a new contract. The player has been warned by the club hierarchy that he would be sold if he doesn’t sign a contract extension shortly.

It’s arguable that Chelsea would suffer a setback if he left. The Croatian has made 218 appearances altogether since joining the team in 2019, totaling six goals and 14 assists.

With the exception of one, Tuchel oversaw the Blues’ victories in the Europa League, Champions League, UEFA Super Cup, and FIFA Club World Cup throughout that span.

Kovacic wants Chelsea to go.

Sport1 in Germany claims that Kovacic is attempting to compel a transfer away from Chelsea. This implies that discussions over a new contract have finally come to an end.

The midfielder would rather be sold to a Premier League outfit, the report continues. Currently, Tuchel is rumored to be thinking about making a summer move for his former player.

There is no denying that Kovacic is still a good player, despite his inconsistent outings at Chelsea this season.

Kovacic, however, might not be the only player the London club looks to sell this summer, as was already revealed.

Todd Boehly, the club owner, is rumored to be considering firing as many as 15 players. This is done to make up for the £600 million he has spent on new players this year.

According to reports, Boehly has added Kovacic to his hit list along with Edouard Mendy, Cesar Azpilicueta, Trevoh Chalobah, Conor Gallagher, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Mason Mount, and eight more players. 

It will be intriguing to watch whether Tuchel makes a move for any more Chelsea players in light of this. Mount has been associated with Bayern in recent months, so the manager may pursue him, for instance.

Liverpool, however, remain the front-runners to sign him this summer.

However, it appears almost certain that Kovacic will leave Stamford Bridge. But it is still unclear whether he will rejoin Tuchel at Bayern.
