Eintracht Frankfurt sporting director Fredi Bobic shared his thoughts about Real Madrid striker Luka Jovic, who is playing for the German side after leaving Madrid on a loan deal this winter. Jovic has looked like his former self, making a big impact and scoring goals on a consistent basis, so Bobic explained that keeping the attacker would be interesting for Frankfurt if Madrid are interested in selling the player.

“To dream is always allowed. We have a good relationship with Real Madrid and reached a good agreement for all parts involved this winter. Right now, we can’t say what will happen in the summer because it’s tough to make plans in this situation,” said Bobic, implying that keeping Jovic would be a dream for the German side.

So far, Jovic is coming off the bench as he still tries to adapt to the Bundesliga. Bobic also talked about when Jovic could return to the XI.

“It will depend on Luka and how quickly he can recover the form he had previously here. Andre Silva is a very consistent player so we will have to wait and see if we change our formation, it will depend on many factors,” concluded the sporting director.

Madrid will have to make an important decision about Jovic’s future this next summer. If the attacker isn’t going to have relevant minutes in the Spanish capital, it’d be wise for Los Blancos to move on and try to sell him, given that he’s a young player who needs confidence in order to reach a good form.
