Good News: 3-time UCL winner ready to commit his future to Chelsea – “I love the city”

Croatian international Mateo Kovacic current on a season long loan at Chelsea from Real Madrid has revealed he is enjoying his stay in England but reluctant entering into a debate regarding a possible permanent transfer.

Kovacic joined the Blues in the summer having been down the pecking order behind the likes of Toni Kroos, Luka Modric and Isco.

And Kovacic, quizzed on his future, the 24-year-old said in the Evening Standard: “It’s too early for these questions, I am here and very happy.

“[Playing regularly] is good, I’m a little bit tired. I was not used to playing every three or four games and here it is very tough football.

“You can’t relax against anybody so it’s a little bit difficult but I really enjoy it. We have a great team, great fans and the city is nice. I like it a lot here.”

The three-time Champions League winner added on his experiences in west London: 

“I go around and I enjoy the city – it’s huge and I haven’t seen enough of it yet. I’m looking forward to getting to know it more. I’m enjoying it. What’s the most interesting thing I’ve seen so far? The stadium.

“I don’t do anything special. I spend a lot of time in Cobham because I need to prepare myself for training and every game but after that I go home and enjoy time with my wife.

“Nothing special, we go for dinner, we live in the city so we are walking a lot. My family enjoys the city and that’s the most important thing for me in the end.”
