    He'll be in the top 5 midfielders in the EPL next season. Then go back and properly succeed Modric at Madrid.

    I thought that role was reserved for us?

    Well it gives them another season to find someone better than Bakayoko who went. Are you telling me you wouldn’t of taken that deal whilst selling Dembele or an unwanted midfielder?

    That could work for us. I doubt Modric would be ready for the knackers yard in 12 months time.

    They are literally borrowing players to compromise the development of their youngsters, its short termist in the extreme.

    I actually dont think we would get someone like Kovacic - guaranteed to start and become a major part of the team - on a loan.

    Why do that, do lose them in a season?

    Nothing precludes Chelsea buying him later. Although there is no automatic buyout I would think him being there puts them in the driving seat for future negotiations. Bit disappointed about this one.

    Got to ask again

    When have people seen him play to rate him so highly?

    He has mainly been a sub at club and country so I’m wondering why he is worth £60m

    Looked good in Italy apparently where the game is slower and they have more time on the ball

    I agree that’s what they do in general, was just saying specifically about Kovacic it might not be a bad move for them (I’ve not seen anything of him so no idea how good he is).Just to add just because there is no option to make it permanent doesn’t mean it doesn’t become permanent, I’ve seen that happen before....

    Maybe? Maybe a year at that basket case is enough to put him in the shop window for City or Utd (post Jose ;) ) and they just blow Chelsea away?

    I don't know if something has gotten lost in translation or he's just being a bit overkeen but this doesn't seem like someone who is going back to Madrid.

    There's a certain irony in Chelski actually loaning a player, and not loaning a player out.

    He's replacing a player they have loaned out.
