AC Milan are preparing a ‘Theo Hernandez style’ operation to try and sign Luka Jovic from Real Madrid, according to a report.
Friday’s edition of Tuttosport (via MilanLive) notes that Jovic is the first name on the Rossoneri’s wish list with regards to attacking targets, and that they have already concocted a plan to land him.
The formula would be that of a two-year loan with an obligation to buy – a solution which helps satisfy the needs of all parties. The Serbia international would be given a role as a starter, while Los Blancos would be certain of recovering a large chunk of the €60m fee they paid last summer and Milan can amortise the cost over 24 months.
As far as Real are concerned, the player – although he was purchased from Eintracht Frankfurt last summer – is already destined for the sidelines. Now it must be understood if he will be given a second chance and if he will want to stay or leave.
Meanwhile, some alternatives remain in the background like Myron Boadu of AZ Alkmaar. In addition, if Rafael Leao were to show good signs between now and the end of the season, the management could opt to sign only one striker this summer, otherwise it is assumed they will go for two.
