Real Madrid are keen on selling attacker Luka Jovic this summer and expect Eintracht Frankfurt to make an offer for the Serbian attacker, according to a report published on AS. However, the German side need to sell Andre Silva before they can work on a deal for Jovic, and while Silva seems to be a target for some clubs in the Premier League, he has received no offers yet.

Jovic left Eintracht Frankfurt two years ago when Madrid decided to spend €60 million on his signing. The young attacker didn’t showcase his talent as he couldn’t get relevant minutes in the Spanish capital, although it’s worth mentioning that his attitude didn’t help. He’s still 23 years old but Los Blancos seem to have realized that he will not be a Real Madrid caliber player, so trying to move him before his value in the market keeps decreasing makes sense.

Jovic’s tenure as a Real Madrid player has been a tremendous failure so far and it doesn’t seem likely that he turns it around, so the best Los Blancos can do is trying to get rid of his contract while cashing in a few million on a transfer fee.
