Real Madrid have decided that they will try to sell Luka Jovic in the next transfer window if the right offer comes their way, according to a report from MARCA. Los Blancos spent €60 million to sign him away from Eintracht Frankfurt less than a year ago but Jovic has had a very rough debut season in the Spanish capital, even losing his spot as Benzema’s backup to Mariano.

Madrid could still try to send him on loan but if it’s not possible, they will accept to sell the Serbian striker, per that same report. Jovic is still 22 years old and should receive plenty of interest, with other European clubs like Milan reportedly keen on his signing.

However, Real Madrid will likely want to receive at least €50 million to let Jovic go for good and it’s not clear if he has that kind of value anymore considering the current situation after the Coronavirus pandemic.

Either way, Jovic is now on the transfer block and it looks like his future is no longer in the club.
