The financial situation at Real Madrid could gave AC Milan a good chance of landing Luka Jovic this summer, according to a report.
As Calciomercato.com notes, the words of Real president Florentino Perez in the last 24 hours were startling: “There will be no big purchases this summer, the situation is very bad.”
Economically speaking, the top clubs this year will not make huge signings and instead will try to be smart with their investments, possibly with some ‘swap’ deals like the one which will see Miralem Pjanic swap Juventus for Barcelona with Arthur Melo going the other way.
Los Blancos are looking for a deputy to Karim Benzema who can eventually taken place and have seemingly given up on Luka Jovic, who could leave just a year after his €60m arrival from Eintracht Frankfurt.
Milan’s pursuit of the 22-year-old is described as ‘difficult but not impossible’ due to the fact Real Madrid want to raise as much money as possible from the sale of the Serbia international to minimise any losses.
Meanwhile, playmaker Brahim Diaz will also be allowed to leave and has been linked to Milan in the past, with the possibility of those talks being reignited not excluded.
