Tuttosport: Milan consider abandoning pursuit of €60m man as Real Madrid play hard ball

By Oliver Fisher -

The chances of AC Milan signing Real Madrid striker Luka Jovic this summer have decreased due to the stance of the Spanish club, it is claimed.

The Rossoneri have been repeatedly linked with a move for Jovic over the past few weeks as they prepare for a revolution in the attacking department, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic set to leave the club.

According to Tuttosport (via MilanLive), the Serbia international wants to play continuously and for that reason Milan represent the ideal destination, however the operation is very complicated due to the high costs involved.

The player earns €5m net per year which is too far north of what Milan are wanting to pay, plus Real Madrid apparently want to raise funds from the sale of the 22-year-old after spending €60million a year ago.

Therefore for the moment the idea of a loan deal with option or obligation to buy is not a formula which Los Blancos would consider, so the Rossoneri may have to abandon the idea and instead try their luck with another attacker.
