Chelsea have reportedly made it clear that they are not interested in the permanent signing of Real Madrid midfielder Mateo Kovacic who is currently playing for the Blues on loan.
Kovacic failed to get regular playing time at Real Madrid under former manager Zinedine Zidane forcing him to make a loan move to Chelsea.
But under Chelsea new manager Maurizio Sarri this season, the Croatia international has been impressive playing 12 games so far for the Stamford Bridge landlords.
And according to the latest report by Daily Star UK, Mateo Kovacic will be sent back to his parent club no matter how well he plays for the rest of the campaign.
Kovacic's place in the team has come under threat in recent weeks amid Ross Barkley and Ruben Loftus-Cheek's fine form.
But the back injury to Eden Hazard has meant a guaranteed spot in the starting XI has been made available.
Meanwhile, Chelsea are still unbeaten this season in the Premier League, and Mateo Kovacic is expected to play in the Blues' next game against Crystal Palace.
