Real Madrid midfielder Mateo Kovacic is set for medical today at Chelsea.

Mateo KovacicThe Sun says he will undergo a medical at Chelsea today ahead of his loan move from Real Madrid. Chelsea have beaten Manchester United to secure the services of the Real ace who will spend the season at Stamford Bridge. Kovacic, 24, will arrive in London this morning ahead of his physical examination, and could even be announced as a Blues player by the end of the day. It comes with Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois moving in the opposite direction for a reported £38million. While the two deals are not officially linked, it’s understood Chelsea’s agreement to sell Real Madrid the Belgian goalkeeper has smoothed the path to bringing Kovacic in the opposite direction.
