Chelsea serial loanee Mario Pasalic is set to leave the Blues for good this summer after being sent out on loan in each of his six seasons with the club.
The 25-year-old moved to Stamford Bridge in a £3m switch from Hajduk Split back in 2014, but was instantly loaned out to Spanish club Elche.
He was then sent to Monaco, AC Milan and Spartak Moscow over the next three seasons making a combined 61 appearances before joining Atalanta at the start of the 2018/19 campaign.
After making 33 appearances last season, Pasalic was loaned back to the Serie A club this season.
As Gazetta dello Sport report, Atalanta are planning to trigger the £12m option-to-buy clause in Pasalic’s contract this summer.
The Serie A side will reportedly be securing “one of the best deals done in Bergamo in recent times” as his performances have been so impressive.
And Palasic will of course have to agree to join them on a permanent basis.
