Chelsea midfielder tipped to shine at Man Utd
Former West Ham United star Frank McAvennie in a recent statement claimed that Chelsea star Mateo Kovacic will join Manchester United this summer.
McAvennie also believes the Croatia international would shine at Old Trafford for Erik ten Hag’s led squad.
For the past few weeks, Kovacic, who was a part of the 2022 World Cup semi-finalist, has been speculated to leave Stamford Bridge this summer.
This comes the Blues are set to cut down the size of their squad, which has over 30 players at the moment.
With 14 months left in his current contract, Chelsea plan to make some cash from his transfer to balance their books.
A report via Football Insider revealed Manchester United are keen to make a move for the Croatian star.
When asked if Chelsea would let a key player like Kovacic join Man Utd, McAvennie said:
“You have got to get the number of players down to 25. Chelsea have got to get that sorted soon. I can see it, though. Kovacic is going to Manchester United. He is a decent player, and I really think he would do well there.”
