Luka Jovic arrived at Real Madrid, during the summer of 2019 with the purpose of being a proficient substitute for Karim Benzema in the short term and replacing the Frenchman in the long run, but it hasn’t gone to plan.
The Serbian striker has struggled to replicate the quality he displayed at Eintracht Frankfurt, in a frustrating first year in Spanish football.
Marca reports it’s been so weak that Real Madrid is already open to deals for the 22-year-old. Although Jovic’s initial idea was to go out on loan in search of minutes, Real Madrid is not rejecting any alternatives already.
He made his worth 60 million euros, within 12 months of joining, it is a huge improvement. From his 770 minutes over 25 matches, Jovic has only two goals to his credit this season-eight of which he has played.
Although the most significant part of his efforts at the pitch is the way the player acted during the coronavirus crisis.
He violated the quarantine laws of Serbia after going there amid lockdown, he sustained a strange accident away from the field as he returned, 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.
