Mateo Kovacic is in talks over a move to Chelsea from Real Madrid on loan, as the Croatia worldwide pushes to escape the club where he is a fringe player, Goal understands.

Luka Modric's proposed transfer to Inter has caused quite a bit of stir at Real Madrid who seemed anythign but prepared for the news once it broke.

Chelsea are reportedly set to snap up Tottenham Hotspur target Mateo Kovacic on loan.

"The club has shown they work in a coherent and serious fashion", Spalletti told reporters (via Four Four Two). This could be the reason this deal might go down the wire because Chelsea would want such an option and are expected to negotiate to include a purchase option.

Luciano Spalletti has set his sights set on acquiring the Croatian midfielder, who is open to the move, according reports.

Previous reports have stated that Maurizio Sarri is a known admirer of the midfielder, having tracked him since his time at Inter.

Kovacic would return to Madrid next summer in what will be a good deal for Los Blancos given that they retain full control of the player's future.
