Real Madrid to axe €60m star?


Real Madrid are reportedly fed up with striker Luka Jovic and will look to sell him at the end of the season, just over a year after the club splashed €60 million to sign him. 

Jovic has failed to live up to expectation since his mega-money arrival from Eintracht Frankfurt in June last year, scoring just twice in 25 appearances for Los Blancos across all competitions.

The Serbia international's on-field struggles have been compounded by his off-field antics this season, which have seen him land himself in hot water on two separate occasions for breakdown lockdown restrictions.

According to Marca, Real manager Zinedine Zidane has now decided to listen to offers for Jovic at the end of the season and would reportedly be willing to consider a figure of around €50 million (R947 million).

According to the Daily Star, Premier League outfit Leicester City are one of the club's interested in the 22-year-old, although Brendan Rodgers' side would only be willing to pay around €35 million (R663 million) for his services, far less than Real's demands.
