Mateo Kovacic is currently on a season-long loan deal at Chelsea and the Croatian midfielder has featured regularly for the Blues after a bit-part role last season at Real Madrid.
Kovacic admits he’s enjoying his football at Chelsea but insists it’s too early to discuss his future at Chelsea.
Asked if he would join Chelsea permanently at the end of his loan spell, Kovacic told Standard Sport: “It’s too early for these questions, I am here and very happy.
“[Playing regularly] is good, I’m a little bit tired. I was not used to playing every three or four games and here it is very tough football.
“You can’t relax against anybody so it’s a little bit difficult but I really enjoy it. We have a great team, great fans and the city is nice. I like it a lot here.”
Kovacic also admitted his family are enjoying living in London.
“I go around and I enjoy the city — it’s huge and I haven’t seen enough of it yet. I’m looking forward to getting to know it more. I’m enjoying it,” Kovacic added.
“What’s the most interesting thing I’ve seen so far? The stadium.
“I don’t do anything special. I spend a lot of time in Cobham because I need to prepare myself for training and every game but after that I go home and enjoy time with my wife.
“Nothing special, we go for dinner, we live in the city so we are walking a lot. My family enjoys the city and that’s the most important thing for me in the end.”
