With Kovacic close to joining Chelsea, it seems some rival fans can’t stop laughing at the rumoured price tag the club are said to be paying for the Croatian.
According to the BBC, Chelsea are reported to be paying £40 million for the 25-year-old, and it seems Manchester United fans find that funny.
One Manchester United fan took to Twitter after the fee was revealed, and started comparing him to their Brazilian midfielder Fred, who he claimed had a better season statistically than Kovacic.
Chelsea paid more for Kovacic than Manchester United did for AWB.
Fred put up better numbers than Kovacic did this season.
If I speak.

Chelsea fans reacted with hilarity at the tweet, quick to remind Manchester United fans of what happened last season.
Here is a selection of tweets from Chelsea fans after that tweet by Manchester United fans on Kovacic:
