Manchester United and Liverpool plan on adding a lot of new players to the team and out of their many list that have same interest in this particular player. Today Liverpool and Manchester United are linked with Mateo Kovacic.
The both teams are presently leading the chase for the signature of £71m rated star Mateo Kovacic after he’s announcement that he wants to leave Real Madrid this summer.
Mateo Kovacic grew his career at Dynamo Zagreb moving up from their youth ranks and made himself ome of the most exciting midfielders in Europe when he made a move to Inter Milan in 2013 then a move to Real Madrid two years later.
The youngsters time at Real Madrid hasn’t been so full of action for him since it has been a problem keeping a spot in the first team line up and only started 10 matches last season with Casemiro and Luka Modric most times picked ahead of him.
However, Kovacic has come out to show that he’s not happy with his current career situation and it has brought interests from Premier League teams with media reports claiming that Man Utd and Liverpool are the leading Premier League teams interested in the £71m rated star.
The Premier League teams have shown more interest as reports have come saying thay Mateo Kovacic has told teammates and coach that he wants to leave club to search for more first team action, this really increased the interest teams have for him.
Real Madrid aren’t going to give the Croatian International up so easy without an heavy fee on his head as the european champions are demanding £71m for Kovacic and they’ll also sign a replacement first before letting go of Kovacic.
It’s still on probability if Liverpool or Manchester United will yield to the asking price but with the fact that he’s set to leave that will be able to drive price down.
Man Utd manager has shown his frustration and discontent on the fact that the club has only been able to sign one significant player this transfer season, the addition of Fred to the squad but he believes tjere should be more at the final days of the transfer season.
Kovacic will be a good addition to the Manchester United midfield and be part of a strong midfield consisting of Paul Pogba and so on if he makes a move to the Old Trafford this few days remaining before the beginning of the season.
And also we can’t ignore the fact that Liverpool is also in the race for the 24 year old midfielder as they have shown thet are ready to spend large this transfer season. They have used over £80m already and Jurgen Klopp still states that he’s on the watch for Kovacic.
We can only wait to see where the player lands at the end of the transfer season whether he ends up at Man Utd or at Liverpool. He’ll be a great addition to which ever team he goes at the end .
