According to GOAL, Chelsea will sell Mateo Kovacic this summer before his contract expires next year amid interest from Manchester United, Manchester City and Bayern Munich.

The report adds: “Chelsea need to find a way to decrease the size of their incredibly bloated first-team squad ahead of next season, and the report claims that Todd Boehly and Clearlake Capital are reluctant to keep players who are entering the final 12 months of their deal.

“That, combined with a need to raise funds, means Kovacic is well-positioned to become one of several big-name departures.

“Bayern Munich are keeping tabs on the Croatian midfielder, with Manchester City also following the situation closely as they potentially prepare to say goodbye to Ilkay Gundogan.

“Another club linked is Manchester United, whose search for another fresh face in midfield this summer is common knowledge – the Red Devils have also been linked to Mason Mount, who finds himself in a similar position to Kovacic.”
