Mateo Kovačić’s arrival at Chelsea yesterday was greeted with great excitement.

The Croatian signed on deadline day as part of the £35milion deal that saw Thibaut Courtois move to Real Madrid.

As a result, the prospect of a midfield comprised of Jorginho, N’Golo Kante and Kovačić has got Chelsea fans excited for the start of the season.

However, there is one small detail of this deal that has Chelsea fans divided.

As Nizaar Kinsella reported, Kovačić’s loan doesn’t come with an option to buy with it, meaning the Croatian will return to Madrid at the end of the season.

With this in mind, some fans can see the silver lining to this, others feel angry about this decision.
