Real Madrid will hold on to their Serbian striker Luka Jovic and give him a second chance at the club, despite the player failing to impress for the Bernabeu-outfit in his debut season in Spain, according to a report in the Spanish outlet, Cadena Cope [via Daily Mail].
Jovic, who joined Madrid in the summer of 2019 from German side Eintracht Frankfurt, was expected to be a key goal-getter for the La Liga side, but has struggled to find form in the Spanish capital. The 22-year-old has only managed to get his name on the scoresheet twice this season, a considerably poor output, considering Madrid spent £62m to sign him.
‼️? Mbappe, Haaland & Pogba aren’t Real Madrid priorities for the next transfer window. The goal of Madrid is selling & loaning their players after the end of the season. Real Madrid IS NOT interested in signing Haaland – the club’s faith in Luka Jović is total. @miguelitocope pic.twitter.com/IqCNRf3kvD

However, Madrid seem to have decided to give the Serbian a second-chance. At 22, the player still could prove to be the main striker for Madrid in the coming years. In the season prior to the one he joined Los Blancos, Jovic had amassed 27 goals for Frankfurt in all competitions, and the Madrid-based will be hoping the Serbian would deliver the goods once he adapts to life at the club.
Should Madrid decide to back Jovic, they will likely cool their interest in Borussia Dortmund‘s Erling Haaland, who has been also linked with a move to the 13-time European champions.
