AC Milan are following Real Madrid striker Luka Jovic with interest, a report claims, and a formula has been drawn up regarding how he could arrive at San Siro.
According to the latest from Tuttosport on Tuesday (via MilanNews), the Rossoneri made an attempt to sign the Serbia international in January amid his struggles since arriving at Real Madrid, but ultimately he stayed in Spain.
Jovic’s experience with Los Blancos has been far from positive so far. He has scored just three goals in 15 appearances, a far cry from the 2018-19 campaign when – with Eintracht Frankfurt – he scored 27 overall goals in 47 matches.
During his adventure in Frankfurt, Jovic had a close relationship with Rebic: the winger – now in his own purple patch at AC Milan – was his perfect “twin”. The two remained in contact and it cannot be ruled out that the Croatian could play a role in advising his former team-mate to consider a move to Milan.
The player’s willingness to leave Madrid could make a difference, but Milan will have to provide rather convincing arguments to push Real Madrid to let Jovic leave.
The LaLiga club spent €60million to snatch him from Eintracht and cannot afford to sell him off for cheap, so a two-year paid loan with an option to buy that becomes an obligation based on results could be a solution. With Rangnick’s arrival, Milan could accelerate even more.
