Authentic Mateo Kovacic Jersey

​Chelsea midfielder Mateo Kovacic has been forced to withdraw from international duty with Croatia after picking up an Achilles injury.

The Blues have been without both Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Callum Hudson-Odoi this season after the two players suffered serious Achilles injuries towards the end of the previous campaign, whilst the likes of Antonio Rudiger, Willian and Reece James have all been injured as well.

The Croatian national team confirmed on ​Twitter that ​Kovacic had withdrawn from the squad to be replaced by Hajduk Split’s Mijo Caktas, but they did not give any indication as to the reason why.

Fortunately, the ​Daily Mail did explore the issue, revealing that Kovacic had picked up an Achilles injury. However, it is not believed to be nearly as serious as either ​Loftus-Cheek’s or Hudson-Odoi’s injury.

Instead, they state Kovacic has suffered an inflamed Achilles tendon in his right leg, which will not require a lengthy lay-off.

The Blues have been dealing with injury problems all year, and Kovacic now appears set to add his name to that list. He has enjoyed a fantastic start to the season under Frank Lampard, impressing fans with his dribbling and passing which was not always on show under former boss Maurizio Sarri.

N’Golo Kante has also been nursing an injury, but it is hoped that he will be fully fit when the international break comes to a close, meaning he could fill in for Kovacic with ease.

The Frenchman may not be the only imminent return for Chelsea, with Hudson-Odoi recently revealing he is ​targeting a comeback after the break.

Chelsea could certainly do with having all their stars back, after enduring what can only be described as a tumultuous start to the campaign. Generally, the team has performed well, but some glaring concerns have seen the Blues pick up just five points from their opening four games.

Women’s Ante Coric Jersey

Una delegación de Peñarol ha estado en Almería para ultimar el acuerdo con el delantero charrúa. El mediocentro croata ha viajado hoy desde Roma a Almería.

Women's Ante Coric Jersey

Uno de los nombres que lleva sonando durante todo este octavo mes del año, caso de Darwin Núñez, y una de las bombas de Segunda División, Ante Coric, están a punto de recalar en el Almería. Ambas operaciones están prácticamente cerradas a falta de los flecos y documentación de última hora. No en vano, una delegación de Peñarol ha estado en Almería en los últimos días para ultimar el acuerdo por el jugador charrúa y el mediocentro croata ha viajado este domingo desde Roma hasta el sudeste peninsular.

Ante Coric se ha desplazado este domingo hasta tierras almerienses procedente de la capital de Italia para cerrar esta semana su préstamo con el Almería e incorporarse a las órdenes de Pedro Emanuel. El internacional croata es una de las apuestas más fuertes de los nuevos propietarios de un Almería que ha virado su discurso de la permanencia y los propios futbolistas ya mencionan sin temor el término ‘ascenso’ a diferencia de otrora.

La intención del centrocampista, de 22 años, es jugar con el Almería en la máxima categoría del fútbol español. Se trata de una cesión con opción de compra, ya que Turki El-Assy no quiere préstamos sin opciones de compra para no formar a jugadores para otros equipos. El pasado estío el Roma desembolsó seis millones de euros al Dinamo Zagreb por Coric, que fue a la Eurocopa de Francia.

Al conjunto rojiblanco también se incorporará Darwin Núñez si no ocurre ningún problema de última hora. De hecho, según el diario Ovación, el acuerdo está ya cerrado, percibiendo Peñarol cuatro millones y medio de dólares (3’56 millones de euros), más diferentes porcentajes, que estarían en torno al kilo y medio de dólares (1’33).

La expedición del Peñarol, formada por Alejandro Ruibal, Isaac Alfie y Evaristo González, se reunieron esta semana con miembros del club almeriense para concretar las diferentes cantidades por una de las promesas del fútbol uruguayo. El delantero charrúa, de 20 años, no fue convocado al encuentro ante el River, esperando a que le diesen el visto bueno para viajar hasta España. Aunque suele actuar de delantero centro, también puede partir desde ambos costados.

Beşiktaş’ın başarılı stoperi Vida’ya Fransız ekibi Rennes talip oldu.

Beşiktaş savunmasının belkemiği Domagaj Vida’ya Rennes’in talip olduğu ileri sürüldü.

Yahoo Sport Fransa’nın haberine göre Rennes, Domagoj Vida’yı transfer etmek istiyor. Yeni sezon öncesi kadrosuna stoper takviyesi yapacak olan Fransız kulübünün Vida’yla ciddi bir şekilde ilgilendiği yazıldı.

Beşiktaş ile 2022 yılına kadar sözleşmesi bulunan 30 yaşındaki futbolcu için 10 milyon Euro değer biçilse de, İstanbul’da yaşamaktan mutlu olan Vida’nın ayrılığı zor görünüyor.

Wholesale Ivan Rakitic Jersey

Barcelona midfielder Ivan Rakitic has reaffirmed his desire to stay at the club, despite the continued links surrounding his future in Spain.

The Croatian international, who has been at Barca since signing from Sevilla for around €18m in 2014, has been linked with both Manchester United and Inter, among others, this summer.

However, as quoted by Sport, the midfielder has stated that he wishes to stay at the Catalan club, declaring: “My idea is very clear, I want to stay at Barca. [Transfer talk] is a situation I’m used to. It happened to me last year.”

According to various reports, Rakitic is one of six players the Spanish champions are willing to include in any swap deal involving Neymar.

However, the midfielder has revealed that both himself, the coach and the club are on the same wavelength regarding his future, though he did add a caveat. The Croatian explained:

“I’ve spoken with the club and the coach and we have the same idea, for me to stay at Barca. We’re open to everything, as always, but my intention is to stay. I have two more years on my contract and I want to keep enjoying myself at Barca.

“It doesn’t annoy me. I know that football works like this and it makes me proud because if other teams want me it’s because I’m doing things very well. I’m calm.”

Asked about his conversations with Josep Maria Bartomeu over a potential new contract, the 31-year-old remained coy, revealing:

“I spoke with the president on various topics and now the club has other things to do before thinking about [my new contract]. The president wants to create a good squad so that the fans can enjoy Barca.”

Nikola Kalinic Croatia Jersey

Atletico Madrid are hard at work looking to nail down their front line following the arrival of Joao Felix with two more deals as Nikola Kalinic departs and Benfica’s Serbian youth striker Ivan Saponjic set to sign.

The 21-year-old will compete his switch on Monday and immediately join the team for training, despite Benfica’s request for him to first join them for pre-season.

Having lined up alongside Real Madrid’s new arrival Luka Jovic for Serbia in the European Under-21 Championship this summer, he brings strength and aerial ability with prolific finishing.

Set to be fourth choice behind Felix, Alvaro Morata and Diego Costa, Saponjic’s arrival will mark the end of attacking business for Atletico in this summer’s transfer window.

Wholesale Tin Jedvaj Jersey

El Celta continúa peinando el mercado en busca de refuerzos. Una de las parcelas a recomponer es la defensa y ya son varios los nombres que han sonado. En las últimas horas, un nuevo zaguero parece estar en la agenda celeste. Según informa RadioVigo, Tin Jedvaj -central del Bayern Leverkusen- es del gusto del cuadro vigués.

La dirección deportiva que encabeza Felipe Miñambres sigue estudiando el mercado de verano. Sin prisa pero sin pausa. Acertar con las llegadas es mejor que precipitarse, para que no suceda algo similar a lo de esta temporada. La defensa parece ser la principal parcela a reforzar bien, con hombres de garantía.

Desde que terminase la temporada, ya son varios los nombres que han sonado para reforzar esa zona, sobre todo en el eje central. Lucas Martínez, de River, fue uno de los tentados, pero River rechazó una oferta del Celta por él. Otro de los que sigue en la órbita celeste Joseph Aidoo, del Genk.

También suena Djiku, por el que a su vez han preguntado equipos como Getafe y Sevilla. La directiva celeste también puso sus miras en Christopher Jullien, del Toulouse, aunque de momento no hay avances al respecto.

En esta ocasión es Tin Jedvaj, del Bayern Leverkusen, otro de los favoritos de los vigueses para reforzar la zona central de su defensa. El croata, según apunta Radio Vigo, no está del todo feliz con su situación en el cuadro germano, por lo que vería con buenos ojos cambiar de aire. Parece ser uno de los favoritos en el Celta, aunque las conversaciones no parecen estar demasiado avanzadas hasta la fecha.

Con la marcha de Cabral y el retorno de Hoedt tras su cesión, Araujo y David Costas son los únicos centrales del equipo, por lo que se hace primordial reforzar cuanto antes la parcela defensiva.

Custom Mateo Kovacic Jersey

ANTONIO CONTE wants to steal Mateo Kovacic from Chelsea as his first transfer as the new boss of Inter Milan, according to reports.

The Croatian spent two years at the San Siro before joining Real Madrid in 2015 where he has since struggled to make an impact.

The 26-year-old spent last season on loan at Stamford Bridge, with the Blues reportedly finding a way to bypass their transfer ban by extending his stay.

However, former Chelsea manager Conte has made Kovacic’s return to Inter a priority since becoming their new boss, according to Tuttosport.

Maurizio Sarri recently revealed his wish to make the midfielder’s stay in England permanent, amid rumours of an obligatory option to buy for £26million.

However, Kovacic may favour a return to the San Siro, where he spent two years after leaving Dinamo Zagreb, before his big-money move to Spain.

Conte also remains keen on luring Manchester United pair Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez, who may be drawn by the club’s lure of Champions League football.

The former Juventus and Chelsea boss told the BBC World Service when quizzed on links to two Red Devils stars: “I think now it’s very difficult to talk about this.

“For sure, we have a plan to try to improve the team.

“But it will be very important for the players, it will be very important to have a great will and great ambition, me, the players and the club, to try to reduce this gap.”

SunSport exclusively revealed Lukaku’s dream move to the Serie A was under threat because the club needs to raise £40million to meet financial fair play rules.

Inter are not keen to pay much more than £60m for the 26-year-old, who is now left sweating on whether United will insist on such a high fee which could potentially price him out of a move away from Old Trafford.

The striker still has three years left on his current deal, but United have made it clear to him he can leave if the right offer comes in.

Youth Ivan Perisic Jersey

Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia reports that Inter’s Croatian international winger Ivan Perisic, could end up staying at the club past this season.

According to the report, things have changed since this past January, when the former Borussia Dortmund player was pushing for an exit, preferably to the Premier League. This is because, several of the problems and issues that bothered the Croatian, have now been resolved and Perisic feels at home at Appiano Gentile and the club as a whole.

The problems in the dressing room have improved severely, and the new ambitious project Inter are embarking on, under new coach Antonio Conte, seems to have planted a seed of doubt in Perisic’s head about leaving the Nerazzurri.

However, Sky Sport Italia concludes that both the player and the club, are aware that should an important offer for the player arrive, it is likely that they will part ways but as things stand today compared to only a few weeks ago, it is far less certain that Perisic will leave the club.

Women’s Darijo Srna Jersey

Il giocatore rossoblù festeggia oggi gli anni, giunto quasi al termine del suo primo anno col Cagliari. Resterà in Sardegna?

Una stagione in chiaroscuro, ma non poteva essere altrimenti. Tanti auguri a Darijo Srna, che proprio oggi compie 37 anni: l’esterno croato, arrivato a Cagliari per coprire la fascia destra con la sua esperienza pluriennale, ha iniziato la stagione con grande impatto sulla Serie A, per poi subire una normale flessione di rendimento.

Il suo apporto alla squadra è stato però finora molto importante: il curriculum, l’autorevolezza e le doti di uomo-squadra hanno contribuito certamente alla buona stagione offerta finora dal Cagliari. Sarà ora da capire se proseguirà la sua avventura in Sardegna.

Il Cagliari Calcio ha voluto omaggiare Srna attraverso un video con disegni e illustrazioni che ripercorrono i momenti più significativi della sua vita: l’infanzia, la guerra, le tante difficoltà superate con talento e coraggio, una carriera internazionale costellata di successi, l’arrivo in Sardegna. Il tutto accompagnato dalla voce narrante del giornalista di Sky Sport, Marco Nosotti.

A lui vanno gli auguri della redazione di CalcioCasteddu.

Kids Andrej Kramaric Jersey

Andrej Kramaric has told bundesliga.com he can envisage ending his playing career with Hoffenheim.

The Croatia international, 27, joined Hoffenheim from Leicester City midway through 2015/16 – the same season the Foxes won the English Premier League title – and has gone on to score a club record 48 Bundesliga goals in 107 appearances for the Sinsheim club, usurping Sejad Salihovic in the history books.

“When I joined Hoffenheim or when I was a kid, I never thought I’d be the best striker in the history of some club,” Kramaric said when he sat down with bundesliga.com this week. “I’m close to being a club legend like Salihovic. I’ll be happy if I score more goals, make more assists and we have success. I’m really happy here, and I wouldn’t complain if I finished my career at Hoffenheim.”

Needless to say the feeling at Hoffenheim is mutual. When Kramaric arrived in south-west Germany in January 2016, Die Kraichgauer were propping up the rest of the Bundesliga. Five Kramaric goals in 15 matches later, Hoffenheim were safe and their Croatian saviour’s loan deal was made permanent.

Kramaric repaid the faith he hadn’t received in England by netting a team-leading 15 goals in 2016/17 as Hoffenheim muscled their way into the top four and qualified for Europe for the first time. He contributed 13 strikes as Julian Nagelsmann’s side went one better the following campaign, finishing third to qualify directly for the UEFA Champions League groups, and helped Croatia reach the final of the 2018 FIFA World Cup, where they lost 4-2 to France.

“Let’s not forget, Andrej is an international star now,” Hoffenheim sporting director Alexander Rosen told bundesliga.com with a smile. “A World Cup finalist, who’s certainly on the radar of other clubs. But he’s so down to earth and so clearly in his element here at Hoffenheim. As they say in English, ‘it’s the perfect match!'”

Kramaric is set to make his 125th competitive appearance for Hoffenheim in Sunday’s meeting with Hertha Berlin. He is on a joint-career-best 15 goals for the season, including nine in his last 10 outings. Only Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski has scored more in that time.

“He’s a goalscorer, he’s got very good movement and works hard for the team,” said Salihovic, who made 171 Bundesliga appearance for Hoffenheim between 2006 and 2015. “He really puts in the leg work for the goals he scores himself. I think he’ll score a lot more goals for Hoffenheim.”
