Jovic in England? Leicester want to create a super duet
Luka Jovic is not playing well in Madrid. The Serbian player may continue his career in another team. Leicester want to create a super duet from Luka Jovic and Jamie Vardy.
In the summer of 2019, Luka Jovic transferred from Eintracht to Real Madrid in exchange for 60 million euros. After a successful season in Germany, a lot was expected from the forward in Spain. But the expectations did not come true.
The 22-year-old plays a bit. The Serbian forward has a contract with the “Royal Club” until the summer of 2025. But given the current situation, there is a chance that Jovic will leave Real Madrid much earlier after the end of the 2019/20 season.
Leicester want to add Luka to the English club. The head coach of the team, Brendan Rodgers, intends to create a duet between Jovic and Jamie Vardy in the attack. Leicester believe that the Serbian player will be able to play in England.
From the very beginning, Real Madrid wanted to let Luka go on loan. Amid the financial losses caused by the coronavirus, they have changed their mind and are ready to sell the young player.
The amount which the English club will have to pay is already named. Leicester City are ready to pay 31 million in exchange for Jovic. The English side want to make the transfer this summer.
Luka Jovic has made 16 appearances in La Liga’s 2019/20 season, scoring two goals and assisting one. The Serbian player has played four matches in the Champions League, but he could not show himself.
