Real Madrid striker Luka Jovic has seemingly addressed rumours that he could be shipped out this summer – with AC Milan linked.
Jovic only joined Los Blancos this summer from Eintracht Frankfurt, signing a six-year contract at the Bernabeu with the Bundesliga side receiving a reported €60m fee.
The Serbia international scored 27 goals in 48 appearances in all competitions for Frankfurt last season, including 10 in the Europa League.
That saw Eintracht exercise buy him from Benfica before flipping him on to the Spanish capital for a quick profit.
Despite only just arriving at Real, shock reports earlier on Tuesday linked Milan with a loan move for Jovic, who apparently might not be in Zinedine Zidane’s immediate plans.
However the player took his opportunity to respond to those rumours through Serbian outlet Novosti, seemingly denying any chance of him leaving.
“The media always make me laugh,” he said, as per MilanNews.it.
“I’ve been used to all kinds of comments and judgments since beginning of my professional career. Time will tell what is true.
“Zidane? He believes in me, his thoughts have not changed. I am learning from him day after day, I am very happy. He is at the top of world football, both as footballer and coach.”
