Real Madrid have pulled off another feat, swooping on Inter Milan midfielder in a move that is believed to set in motion the movement of some players from Bernabeu.
Chezsports has just confirmed the signing of Mateo Kovacic from Inter Milan on a six-year contract.
Madrid did not confirm the value of the deal but Kovacic, who is just 21 years of age is believed to have cost the Galaticos around €30 million.
A statement on the Spanish club’s official website read: “Real Madrid C. F. and Inter Milan have agreed to the transfer of Mateo Kovacic, he will remain at the club for the next six seasons.
“The player will be presented tomorrow, Wednesday 19 August at 1 p.m., in the presidential box at the Santiago Bernabeu, after undergoing a medical, from there he will be stepping into the pitch to juggle with the ball with the Madrid jersey on”.
Inter boss Roberto Mancini had previously confirmed that his side had accepted Real’s offer for Kovacic as they needed to balance the books.
“Unfortunately there are financial fair play rules to respect and I don’t think any of us wanted this, but to respect UEFA’s parameters we had to do something,” Inter Mancini told Mediaset television.
