Mateo Kovacic got injured at the beginning of the season in the first game in the Champions League against APOEL. The midfielder suffered an injury in the adductor muscle that keeps him out of the pitch at least six weeks. For this reason, he didn’t have to play with his national team and he took this opportunity to travel to Italy on holidays with his wife.
This fact has triggered all the rumours. Kovacic uploaded a picture with his wife in the San Peter’s square, in the Vatican, Rome. The Roma supporters saw that as an opportunity for the player to know the city and fall in love with the team, who is chasing his signing.
Last summer, Roma tried to sign Mateo Kovacic. Actually, many Italian clubs are chasing him up since his arrival to Madrid. He came from Inter Milan, where he shone, but Real Madrid don’t want to get rid of him and it’s very unlikely to think on a possible transfer.
Kovacic said several times that he was very happy in Madrid. He has convinced Zidane and little by little he’s having more opportunities on the pitch. However, the competition is tough and there are several players in his position, including the new signing Dani Ceballos. For this reason, his injury could prevent him to play many minutes in the next months in the team.
In the meantime, Roma will try to sign. Monchi, former Sevilla FC sports director, is now working for the Italian team and Kovacic is one of his targets. According to Corriere dello Sport, many supporters are already dreaming for him. Roma and Inter fans are fighting in the network for him, trying to convince the player to leave Spain and join Inter Milan or Roma. At the moment, Kovacic needs to get ready to play again and join the rest of the group, in Madrid.
