CM: €60m Real Madrid man remains Milan’s No.1 target despite hurdles – the two alternatives

By Oliver Fisher -

Real Madrid striker Luka Jovic remains at the top of AC Milan’s striker wish list, a report claims, but there are two alternatives in mind.

The injury that Zlatan Ibrahimovic sustained in training on Monday has highlighted just how fragile Milan’s centre-forward department has been since the departure of Krzysztof Piatek, and reveals how they plan to fix it.

Jovic remains the most concrete name and could leave Real Madrid just one year after arriving in a €60million deal from Eintracht Frankfurt. His recent heel injury has further complicated his redemption plan and the Rossoneri are ready to make an offer on basis of a two-year loan, but there are obstacles.

The player is determined to convince Los Blacos and head coach Zinedine Zidane that he is worthy of another shot, and considering that Karim Benzema is 33 years old he may be given a chance.

Milan are aware of these difficulties, as well as those related to the high salary Jovic received (around €5m-a-year), so it is no coincidence therefore that the club are monitoring other targets.

AZ Alkmaar striker Myron Boadu – 19 years old and with 20 goals in 39 games – and Donyell Malen of PSV Eindhoven are two names, with their agent being Mino Raiola that could help things.
