Chelsea has completed the signing of Croatian midfielder Mateo Kovacic from Real Madrid on a season-long loan.

The 24-year-old moves to London as part of the deal that saw goal stopper Thibaut Courtois move in the opposite direction for £35million.

The Croatian international who signed for Los Blancos in 2015, failed to establish himself as a regular starter following his move from Inter Milan.
