Kovacic has impressed in Chelsea and the Stamford Bridge outfit is willing to sign him but the high valuation of €50m quoted by Real Madrid is the deterring Chelsea to seal the deal for the former Inter Milan star.

Chelsea is of the view that the valuation is too much for the Croatian and are warning Perez to reduce the price or they'll send Kovacic back in June.

Kovacic’s contract will expire in 2021 and his buyout clause is €300m.
