Jovic, ‘case closed’

first_img18 Jovic signed for Madrid on July 2, 2019 by 60 million euros, amount that now seems exorbitant for its poor goalscoring production of this course. He scored only two goals (one against Leganés and one in Pamplona against Osasuna), but it is also true that he has only played a fifth of the possible minutes (766 of 3,360). In fact, he has only played one full game (against Granada on September 25). The truth is that now, at Transfermarkt its price has dropped almost in half (32 million). But in Madrid they insist on reiterating their confidence: “You can make a list of players who at the age of 21 or 22 seemed stagnant and who at 25 were in the world top ten. Time to time.” It should not be forgotten that Jovic achieved 27 goals in the 48 games played in the 2018-19 season with Eintracht Frankfurt. “No one gives that to you,” they insist.The shadow of Haaland, Although it is elongated, it does not have to affect Jovic this summer either, given that Until January 2021 the Norwegian price does not enter acceptable figures (Borussia put 75 million selling price but only from that winter market, Never before).

Madrid preferred to remain silent, but AS has pushed the feeling of the club with the situation that the boy is dragging and the answer removes any doubt about his future: “Luka is at the perfect age to grow as a footballer and as a person, he signed a contract until 2025 and we are counting on him. He did nothing without knowledge of Real Madrid and the local police of their country were informed of their arrival. A mountain has been made from a grain of sand. The first year is not easy for anyone because of their adaptation to a new country, language and culture, but We know its potential and nobody doubts its possibilities here. “center_img Luka is still confined to Belgrade, where he traveled to see his young son, the result of his relationship with his first wife, model Andjela Manitasevic.
