Bayern Munich pulled out an unprecedented swap deal card for the recruitment of Mateo Kovacic (28, Chelsea).
Italian media 크크크벳‘Inter Live’ reported on the 29th (Korean time), “Munich is considering a swap deal in which Leroy Sane is exchanged for Kovacic in cash.”
Since leaving Real Madrid on loan in 2018 and joining Chelsea, Kovacic has shown more than expected performance and even succeeded in a complete transfer.
He was enough to be evaluated as a key midfielder for Chelsea. He not only played 218 matches in his career, but also scored 6 goals and 14 assists.
A future at Chelsea is not guaranteed. Chelsea are known to be preparing to sell some players, including Kovacic, to comply with Financial Fair Play (FFP) this summer.
In the midst of this, manager Thomas Tuchel, who had a kite at Chelsea, reached out. According to reports, coach Tuchel is a big fan of Kovacic and wants to recruit him this summer to reinforce Munich’s midfield.
To this end, the situation is preparing a swap deal type transaction by adding cash to Sane. ‘Inter Live’ put weight on the possibility of a transfer, saying, “The exchange of Kovacic and Sane will be helpful to both sides.”
