Mateo Kovačić (Croatian pronunciation: [matěo kǒʋatʃitɕ]; born 6 May 1994) is a Croatian professional footballer who plays as a midfielder for Spanish club Real Madrid and the Croatia national team.
Kovačić is usually deployed as a central midfielder or deep-lying playmaker, but he is considered to be a versatile midfielder, having played in different positions and adapted to playing either wide on the left or as an attacking midfielder.
Kovačić began his professional career with Dinamo Zagreb at the age of 16, with whom he won two consecutive league titles, before joining Inter in 2013.
After the 2014–15 season, he moved to Real Madrid, where he won his three Champions League with the squad.
A full Croatian international since 2013, Kovačić represented the nation at the 2014 FIFA World Cup and UEFA Euro 2016. He is nicknamed Il Professore (The Professor).
Born in Linz, Austria, to Bosnian Croat parents who had moved there from Kotor Varoš in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kovačić began playing at an early age at the local LASK Linz’s academy.
In 2007, when Kovačić was 13, he was spotted by scouts from several prominent European clubs, including Ajax, Inter Milan, Juventus and Bayern Munich, but his family opted to move to Zagreb instead, where he joined Croatian giants Dinamo Zagreb.
Kovačić suffered a serious injury in 2009 in which his leg was broken, but he returned to the pitch after a lengthy recovery on 31 May 2010, appearing in the last match of the Croatian under-17 academy league, a 5–0 win against RNK Split under-17s.
On 16 August 2015, Inter manager Roberto Mancini confirmed that the club was forced to sell Kovačić to Real Madrid due to Financial Fair Play regulations. Speaking during a press conference after a friendly against Greek club AEK Athens, Mancini stated, “There are rules that have to be respected. I don’t think anyone wanted this to happen but we have the Financial Fair Play regulations to follow. We’re all sorry about it: myself, the president, the management and the players themselves.”
Real Madrid also confirmed the transfer two days later, announcing that Kovačić had signed a six-year deal with the club.
The transfer fee was €29 million, according to the financial filing of Inter Milan, in the section Management Report (Italian: Relazione sulla Gestione).
On 19 August, Kovačić was unveiled as a new player by Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabéu, where it was revealed he would wear the number 16 shirt for the club.
Kovačić became the fifth Croatian player, after Robert Prosinečki, Davor Šuker, Robert Jarni and Luka Modrić, to join Real Madrid.

Four days after his presentation, he made his debut as a 70th-minute substitute for Isco as Real Madrid began the La Liga season with a goalless draw at promoted Sporting de Gijón.
He scored his first goal in an 8–0 home win Malmö FF on 8 December 2015.
On 3 January 2016, Kovačić received a straight red card in a 2–2 draw at Valencia for a foul on João Cancelo.
Until the end of his first season with Los Blancos, he made a total of 34 appearances. In the opening months of the season, he was used quite regularly by then Real Madrid boss Rafael Benítez, playing in almost every midfield position there is – sometimes central, sometimes wide, sometimes further forward.
Since Zinedine Zidane replaced Benítez in early January, however, the midfielder’s appearances have become increasingly infrequent. With the Frenchman preferring to use a very defined XI whenever possible instead of the more specific-lineups-for-specific-opponents approach employed by his predecessor, there has been little room for Kovačić.
He made eight appearances and score one goal on Real Madrid’s route to the 2015–16 UEFA Champions League title.
