It seems that Luka Jovic's days at Real Madrid are over. The Royal Club wants to get rid of one or maybe even two reserve strikers from trilling: Luka Jović, Borja Mayoral, Mariano Diaz. And Zinedine Zidane seems to have decided that it would be Jovic and Diaz.
The reason for that is that Jovic is under greater public pressure than Mayoral, because he is paid dearly, so Zidane believes that he would like to pump up his self-confidence somewhere outside Madrid. Signals from Madrid were immediately detected in Italy, where Roma and Milan took a serious bite out of the Serbian striker's loan, but they were hampered by his high salary for Italian conditions.
Inter is only slightly interested. And the local newspaper As and the Italian transfer expert Gianluca di Marcio launched a bomb today that Manchester United wants Jovic. The Madrid daily and the famous Italian journalist claim that no official offer from Manchester has arrived, but that the Red Devils asked Real about the Serbian national team player and that they took a bite.United is looking for a striker who will relieve Rashford, because with so many games and competitions in the season, it is not possible for one center forward to carry all the burden.
Especially since the English striker has been having more and more problems with injuries lately. Martial can play "nine", but Solskjer sees him more on the wing, while Odion Ighalo is a classic reserve who is there to jump in when necessary, he is not a player for big games, and his loan expires in the middle of the season.
Cavani on United radar
That is why United is thinking about bringing in the attackers and that is why Jovic is on their radar. He is not the only one because the Red Devils were in contact with Edinson Cavani's brother in the previous days, who represents the famous Uruguayan as a manager.
Cavani is a free agent and United would not have to pay compensation, but the problem is that he is asking for a salary of around 8,000,000 euros net per year, which is still a serious amount. At a gross level of about 15,000,000 euros.
Jovic's salary is a far more tempting option for United. A Serb in Madrid earns about 4,000,000 euros a year net. In Roma, he would be the striker with Edin Dzeko, while in Milan he could still count on more serious minutes, even though he would be in the shadow of Zlatan Ibrahimovic at the beginning.
The Swede, however, is in serious years, so despite his great form, he cannot be expected to play constantly and there would be enough space for Jovic. Director Paolo Maldini has good relations with Real, which was also seen in the transfers of Teo Hernandez and Braim Diaz, so it is not excluded that he will loan another player from the Royal Club.
