“Benefits everyone” or “can’t offer anything offensively” – Some Chelsea fans on Twitter split over Kovacic signing

Chelsea are about to sign Mateo Kovacic permanently for a fee of around 40m pounds, and that’s a decision that has split our fanbase down the middle.

Some are adamant that it’s a bad call when we have so much young talent breaking through. This was supposed to be the summer where Mason Mount got his chance, instead there’s now a big obstacle in his path.

On the other hand, given we have a transfer ban, how could we not sign him? He’s our only option in this market, and clearly the guys upstairs have decided to take what they can.

It’s a lot of money to pay for someone who doesn’t offer goals and assists in abundance, but his quality is not doubted.
