Man City shirt numbers available for Mateo Kovacic

Mateo Kovacic’s transfer from Chelsea to Manchester City is anticipated to be announced shortly, and it may possibly be official by the end of the week.

The player and the treble winners had already agreed on personal terms, and all that remained was for the clubs to agree on a transfer amount. However, the Italian journalist said on Twitter on Wednesday that a preliminary price of £25 million had been agreed upon, with the potential for an additional £5 million increase based on the team’s future success.

The addition of Kovacic will increase Pep Guardiola’s options in the middle of the field, and when the deal is eventually finalized, supporters will be eagerly awaiting the Croatian’s assigned jersey number. Additionally, there is no lack of choices thanks to the availability of various top jerseys.

Although Kovacic won’t accept the shirt number designated for goalkeepers, No. 1 is surprisingly available. However, the vacant number 11, which was last worn by Oleksandr Zinchenko, might interest him. Should Kovacic so choose, the numbers 12 and 15, which no City player has worn since 2019, are also available.

The signatory may also select from the following other well-liked numbers: 22, 24, 27, 28, 29, and 30. Kovacic’s first jersey at Inter Milan was number 29, and at age 29 he may decide to wear it once more.

Kovacic wears number eight for Chelsea, and with Ilkay Gundogan’s impending transfer to Barcelona, that shirt could soon become available. Kovacic decided to wear the number. 8 jersey, same as he did for the national team and his first club, Dinamo Zagreb, after initially donning the no. 17 at Stamford Bridge.
