MN: Milan’s pursuit of €60m Real Madrid man goes cold because of two reasons

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan’s pursuit of striker Luka Jovic is difficult because of two different reasons, according to the latest reports.

Jovic arrived from Eintracht Frankfurt last summer but has far from impressed scoring just twice, leading to suggestions he could be cut adrift after just one season.

The Rossoneri continue to be the club strongest linked as they look to gift Ralf Rangnick with a new centre-forward, but AS journalist Sergio Gomez claimed last week that it will be ‘very difficult’ to get a deal done.

According to MilanNews, the track has gone cold recently due to economic reasons. In addition to the high cost of the transfer fee (considering a year ago Real Madrid paid €60million for him), the €5m net salary means it will be a difficult operation to pull off.

Jovic has scored just twice in all competitions this season, but the rumours persist that Ralf Rangnick wants to give him a chance to relaunch his career after a tough year.
