Mason Mount and Reece James both react on Instagram as yet another player leaves Chelsea

Mason Mount and Reece James have both responded on Instagram to the recent news of Mateo Kovacic’s departure from Chelsea.

During a busy summer transfer window, Stamford Bridge has witnessed another player leaving as Chelsea swiftly trim their squad. The club officially announced that 29-year-old Mateo Kovacic has completed a move to the Premier League champions, Manchester City.

Kovacic’s departure adds to the list of players bidding farewell to Stamford Bridge this summer, which includes Kalidou Koulibaly and N’Golo Kante. Rumors suggest that there may be more departures on the horizon.

Kovacic took to Instagram to express his farewell message, reflecting on his remarkable five years in west London. Current Chelsea players, including James and Mount, left noteworthy responses in the comment section, using love heart emojis to show their affection for the Croatian midfielder. Kovacic’s absence will be felt in the Chelsea dressing room, both as a player and as a character.

According to The Telegraph, Chelsea views the sale of Kovacic to Manchester City as a profitable deal, potentially amounting to £30 million. With only one year left on his contract with Chelsea, it was expected that a move would materialize this summer.

At his best, the 29-year-old Kovacic has proven to be an exceptional central midfielder, which explains why Manchester City’s acquisition of him comes as no surprise.

Chelsea’s midfield from a year ago has now completely transformed. Kovacic, Jorginho, and N’Golo Kante, who formed the core of Chelsea’s midfield in recent years, are all now plying their trade elsewhere in the upcoming season.

Consequently, there is a significant rebuilding task ahead in the central midfield for Chelsea’s head coach, Mauricio Pochettino. Fortunately, he can rely on Enzo Fernandez and build the team around him in the Chelsea midfield.
