Mateo Kovacic is set to turn his loan move into a permanent move to Chelsea on Saturday from Real Madrid.

The Croatian was signed under former boss Maurizio Sarri, but expected incoming boss Frank Lampard is thought to have approved the signing.

It was reported earlier in the week that Chelsea had agreed a fee of £40 million with the Spanish side.

Chelsea may have a transfer ban, but due to Kovacic already being registered, the Blues are allowed to sign him before July 1st.

According to Di Marzio, Kovacic has agreed terms with the club, and is expected to put pen to paper on Saturday.

See you soon, Mateo!
