Chelsea have just confirmed the signing of Mateo Kovacic from Real Madrid as a part of the deal which landed goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois to Santiago Bernabeu today.
The former Inter Milan midfielder joins Chelsea on a season-long loan.
The Croatia international told the club’s official website: “I am really happy and excited to be here at Chelsea. It is an amazing feeling. I will try to do my best for this club. It is a new league for me, the beginning is always tough but I am sure the coach and my new team-mates will help me and I am looking forward to a great season”.
