England legend, Rio Ferdinand has hailed Manchester City’s recruit as a great business for the Cityzens.
Mateo Kovacic completed a £25 million move from Chelsea to Manchester City this summer. The former Inter Milan and Real Madrid midfielder was pivotal to Chelsea’s champions league triumph earlier on in his career at Stamford Bridge but began to lose his grip on the team when Thomas Tuchel left The Blues.
“Man City, Kovacic is a great signing. Obviously, they have lost Gundogan, the captain, but I think Kovacic is a shrewd signing at that price as well.
“I think he was worth £30m and in the current market, that is huge business, great business. He’s full of experience, won the biggest trophies, and a different player to what they have got in that area. He can travel with the ball through the lines, so I think he is a good signing.” Ferdinand said on his FIVE YouTube channel.
