Madrid might decide to offload the striker
Jovic has survived an incredibly depressing spell at the Bernabeu since completing the transfer of €60 million (£52 million/$65 million) from Eintracht Frankfurt last summer. Big things were expected from a man who scored goals for fun both in the Bundesliga and in the Europa League last season. But he has not yet met expectations in one of the largest clubs in the world. A return of two goals from 24 competitions led to Jovic slipping down in order under the leadership of Zidane. So it was even reported that Madrid might decide to offload the striker when the transfer market reopens. The 22-year-old man also appeared on the headlines in March after violating self-isolation measures imposed by Madrid officials.
Jović was seen outside his apartment in Serbia and was forced to go out to publicly justify his actions after an adverse reaction on the Internet. He said: “I apologize to all the people if I compromise them in some way and hope that we will be able to go through all this together. Support Serbia, and let’s stick together”. Madrid may have to do without Jovic as they prepare to renew fighting with Barcelona at the top of La Liga next month. Zidane’s side sat two points behind their arch-rivals at the summit before the season was suspended in March, with 11 fixtures remaining.
