Luka Jovic is approaching the end of his nightmare spell at Real Madrid, and this month he will be allowed to leave the loan club and return to the former Eintracht Frankfurt club.
The agents of the Serbian striker are negotiating with Real to secure him a loan away from Santiago Bernabeu, with an interest from AC Milan and Wolves among the clubs credited.
He will, however, return to Frankfurt, the club from which he relocated to Madrid in 2019.
On Tuesday night, Frankfurt sports director Fredi Bobic announced the talks, saying to Sky Jovic: “If everything works out, he will be with us again soon.”
Bobic said ahead of the official confirmation, only specifics such as the medical are to be performed. The loan would last until the end of the season, but a purchase option for Jovic was also not omitted by Bobic.
“We will see you next summer. We can still think about everything that will happen in the summer.”Next summer, we’ll see. We can still think about everything that’s going to happen in the summer.
Jovic is not part of the plans of manager Zinedine Zidane, and while Goal has heard that he is not content to be pushed out of Madrid and thinks he can still prove himself and work his way into the first-team picture, the boss is set to get rid of the Serbian and has no interest in holding him even as a back-up choice for the squad.
Jovic at Real has been plagued by injuries, off-field concerns, and a lack of opportunities, and his tenure with the club appears to be over – at least until the end of the season.
Jovic only made eight starts and played only 806 minutes in total during the 2019-20 season since joining Real Madrid in the summer of 2019, scoring a meager two goals and assisting twice more.
The Goal can confirm that Real just wants to loan Jovic out and at this point is not interested in a permanent sale, offering some hope that at some point he could have a fruitful career at Santiago Bernabeu. This seems doubtful for now, however.
