Luka Jovic ‘desperate to quit Real Madrid with £53m transfer flop not in Zinedine Zidane’s plans this season’

LUKA JOVIC is reportedly desperate to quit Real Madrid in search of first-team football in order to reignite his flailing career.

Spanish outlet Marca claim that the Serbian is considering multiple loan offers to leave the Santiago Bernabeu.

The report adds that AC Milan are interested in the 22-year-old but face competition from Hertha Berlin and other Bundesliga clubs.

A return to Germany could appeal to Jovic, after his stunning breakthrough at Eintracht Frankfurt led to a £53million move to Madrid.

Yet the forward's prospects have since taken a downturn after managing just two goals in 27 appearances for Los Blancos last season.

His problems have not just been on the field, with the player also involved in a number of coronavirus controversies throughout the pandemic.

Jovic was threatened with arrest after breaking lockdown rules to return to his homeland - a trip he headed back to Madrid with a foot injury from.

He caused more headlines when he flouted social distancing rules by enjoying a barbecue.

Zinedine Zidane is said to still have faith that Jovic can be a success in Madrid, but the Frenchman is unwilling to promise him regular football this term.

A loan is considered the best move for both parties, with Madrid hoping the striker regains his confidence while also earning some money in a temporary transfer.

Milan have been tracking Jovic for months as they look to provide cover for Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who turns 39 next month.

And Leicester City were reportedly plotting a £31m swoop to partner him with Jamie Vardy.

Yet the Foxes have since turned their attentions to Roma winger Cengiz Under.
