Manchester City have opened talks with Chelsea to sign midfielder, Mateo Kovacic this summer.
Football transfer expert, Fabrizio Romano confirmed that the player’s representatives have held talks with the Premier League champions.
The negotiations involved personal terms for Kovacic, who joined the Blues from Real Madrid in 2019.
Romano tweeted on Wednesday: “Manchester City have opened concrete talks to sign Mateo Kovacic in the summer.
“Positive discussions took place with player’s camp in the last few days over personal terms.

“Chelsea, open to selling Kovacic as part of midfield revolution. Talks will continue soon.”
Chelsea finished 12th in the Premier League and are set for a summer rebuild under new manager Pochettino, whose appointment was confirmed on Monday.
However, before new signings can be made, Chelsea’s squad must be trimmed down, and Todd Boehly is keen to raise funds before the end of June so they can be included in the club’s financial accounts for the past season and remain compliant with Financial Fair Play rules.
As many as twelve players could leave Stamford Bridge, and though Silva, 39, is not one of those heavily linked with a transfer, there is plenty of interest in the veteran defender from his native Brazil and Saudi Arabia.
