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.

Boss Maurizio Sarri has targeted the Croatian international as he starts to overhaul the squad he inherited from Antone Conte.

He found his chances limited because of the form and fitness of Toni Kroos and Luka Modric – leaving him with little option but to look elsewhere even though Real boss Julen Lopetegui wanted him to stay.

Lopetegui said: “It is true that Mateo has expressed his desire to leave.

“I have expressed my desire to stay. If it comes out we’ll see how we mould it.”

Sarri targeted the midfielder after highlighting midfield as one area he needed to improve on his arrival at the club.

He immediately splashed out £57.4million to bring his Napoli player Jorginho to the club, and decided after the club’s pre-season that he needed a further addition.

Heading out of the club is likely to be Tiemoue Bakayoko, who is in talks over a a season long loan move to AC Milan.

The French midfielder has failed to impress since his £40m move from Monaco last season and was not even on the bench for the Community Shield defeat to Manchester City on Sunday.
