Chelsea confirm Kovacic season-long loan deal
Kovacic's arrival is part of the deal which saw Chelsea keeper Thibaut Courtois join Real on Wednesday on a six-year contract. Real will pay an initial 35 million euros ($40.6 million) for the Belgian goalkeeper, Spanish media reported.
"I am really happy and excited to be here at Chelsea. It is an amazing feeling," Kovacic said on Chelsea's website.
"I will try to do my best for this club. It is a new league for me, the beginning is always tough but I am sure the coach and my new teammates will help me and I am looking forward to a great season."
He soon came to the attention of some of Europe's biggest clubs and joined Inter Milan in 2013.
