Manchester United enter race to sign €60m Real Madrid flop

Real Madrid’s Luka Jovic has endured a troublesome time at Real Madrid since his arrival in 2019. Zinedine Zidane signed the forward as the heir to Karim Benzema but the €60m-deal completed two years ago hasn’t gone to plan.

Jovic has scored just two goals in 32 appearances for Real Madrid and was even loaned back to his former club Frankfurt for the second half of the 2020/21 season.

The Serbia international’s woeful stay in the Spanish capital could be coming to an end, however, with AS now reporting that Real Madrid are ready to cut their losses.

The publication claim that Real Madrid are aware that they will not be able to earn their money back but that an offer near €40m would count as enough.

It is also claimed that several clubs are interested in the player, but Chelsea and Manchester United are named from the Premier League.

Manchester United are in the market for a striker despite Edinson Cavani’s one-year extension and a cut-price deal for the former Frankfurt talisman could prove to be good business from the Old Trafford hierarchy.
