Liverpool set to battle Manchester United to sign Kovacic from Chelsea

Mateo Kovacic, a midfielder for Chelsea, has been rumoured to be leaving Stamford Bridge at the conclusion of the season

Since joining the London club, the 28-year-old has established himself as a crucial player, and he is unquestionably one of the league’s most dependable midfielders.

According to a 90 Minutes report, Manchester United and Liverpool are interested in signing the player at the conclusion of the current campaign. If either club wants to contend for major trophies the following season, they will need to add more quality to the middle of the park.

When their contracts expire at the conclusion of the current campaign, players like Naby Keita, James Milner, and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will leave Liverpool. Jude Bellingham, a midfielder for Borussia Dortmund, has lately been mentioned in connection with them, but he won’t be able to solve all of their issues on his own.

Kovacic would be a fantastic addition for Jurgen Klopp, who needs to add more than just one centre midfielder. Kovacic is a proven performer in the Premier League. The Croatian international would be a massive upgrade over players like Scott McTominay in Manchester United’s search for a quality partner for Casemiro.

The two Premier League clubs’ decision to present a specific proposal at the conclusion of the season is still up in the air. Although Chelsea won’t want to lose the player anytime soon, if the Croatian chooses to push for a transfer away from the team, Chelsea may be forced to think about a possible sale.
