With the intention of being a capable replacement for Karim Benzema in the short term and replacing the Frenchman in the long run, but it hasn’t gone to plan, Luka Jovic arrived at Real Madrid in the summer of 2019.
The Serbian striker has strived to replicate the character he performed at Eintracht Frankfurt, in a frustrating first year in Spanish football.
Marca reports that Real Madrid is already open to deals for the 22-year-old. Although going out on loan in search of minutes was Jovic’s initial idea, Real Madrid is not rejecting any alternatives already.
It is a huge improvement to make 60 million euros, considering that he just joined 12 months ago. This season Jovic has only two goals to his credit, eight of which he has played from his 770 minutes over 25 matches.
The way the player acted during the coronavirus crisis is although the most significant part of his efforts at the pitch.
He returned from Serbia and sustained a strange accident away from the field, he even violated Serbia’s own quarantine laws and broke the policy of LaLiga by joining a barbecue with Nemanja Maksimovic from Getafe and Ivan Saponjic from Atletico Madrid.
Zinedine Zidane has always trusted in the man and has been willing to provide him with chances in the future, but now it appears like those opportunities will have to come out of Real Madrid.
