Zidane refuses to rule out exit for Real Madrid forward amid Milan and Man Utd links

By Oliver Fisher -

Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane refused to rule out a potential loan move for Luka Jovic amid reports linking him with a move to AC Milan.

There are sources that believe Milan will see what opportunities are available late in the window to give Pioli some help in the forward department, with Luka Jovic arriving on loan a possibility not to be excluded.

Tuesday’s edition of the newspaper AS (via ManagingMadrid) reported how Zidane has made the decision to let Jovic leave on loan, with three Serie A clubs interested: Milan, AS Roma and Inter.

A report from the Daily Mirror adds that Manchester United are also in the race to sign the 22-year-old Serbia international, who scored just twice in 2019-20 after a big money move from Eintracht Frankfurt.

The English paper also carries quotes from Zidane’s press conference on Wednesday, in which he refused to rule out the idea of Jovic leaving on loan.

“You have to take everything into account,” he said.

“Until the 5th, the market is open. We will see. The players are fine and that’s what interests me.

“Everyone can give their opinion. For me, I always have the best and the best thing is that it is always like that at Madrid.

“The market is open until the 5th. In the end, we already have a lot. Are you going to put more people here? What for?

“They are all very good. I am happy, really.”
