Luka Jovic landed last summer in the Santiago Bernabeu after signing an outstanding season in Eintracht Frankfurt. 27 goals and 7 assists in 48 games were the letter of introduction of the Serbian striker upon his arrival at Real Madrid. A present and future signing for the team led by Zinedine Zidane.
For years it had been claimed that the white team needed a killer of the area. A striker with a great nose for goals, able to give Real Madrid something different in point than what he gives Karim Benzema. However, his first season wearing the meringue shirt has not been easy for him.
The luck in front of goal has been denied to the striker, who has seen how his lack of success has ended up leaving him with much less minutes than expected. In fact, until the break for the coronavirus, Jovic has only contested 770 ‘between all competitions, having scored two goals in The league and distributed two other assists – one in the domestic championship and the other in the Spain Supercup-.
However, not everything is bad for Luka Jovic. The striker has in his favor that he is still very young. Despite his physique, the footballer is only 22 years old. In addition, this first season at Real Madrid can be seen as an adaptation. In fact, other signings like Militao or Hazard nor have they stood out as originally assumed for different reasons.
In addition, this campaign has been at least atypical. With comings and goings in the Champions League, fight to reach the top of the La Liga standings and then inexplicably lose that status of leader the following week and also win the first title of 2020: the Spanish Super Cup. To put the definitely strange touch to the course, this break due to a global pandemic.
Trust in Jovic
From the Santiago Bernabéu, confidence in Jovic is maintained. The footballer was signed for the present, but especially for the future of the team. The plan was that this 2019/2020 season would still be the undisputed ‘9’ Benzema, but it is also obvious that a greater role for the Serb was expected, especially in those moments when the team suffered from a lack of goal.
During the last years, a good number of possible forwards have been placed in the orbit of Real Madrid. Kane, Cavani, Icardi, Ibrahimovic, Werner… until more recently Haaland. However, Jovic was chosen by the Concha Espina club and this bet will not be cut now despite the rumors that continue to haunt the white team.
The Premier, attentive
Since England The first rumors about Jovic’s future have already started to arrive. The Serbian international has been linked to clubs such as Chelsea or even from Tottenham. In the Premier League They try to get a slice and even these teams would be willing to accept a loan instead of a definitive transfer if it is the only formula that Madrid accepts.
Everything is quarantined now. The transfer market is looming different. Figures to the drop and goodbye to those operations that not only far exceeded 100 million euros but also crossed the barrier of 200 ‘kilos’. For the moment, and despite the fact that in recent games Zidane gave more ball to Mariano, the Hispanic-Dominican continues without counting for the next course and Jovic is still seen as the replacement for Benzema.
