Real Madrid – La Liga The coach would approve his exit
Luka Jovic has become the third-choice centre-forward for Zinedine Zidane and, with this in mind, the Serbian is looking at a Real Madrid exit.
Although he was a starter at the Supercopa de Espana this time last year, Jovic finished 2020 with just 607 minutes and one goal, spread across 18 appearances. Real Madrid played 50 total games.
This season he has played 208 minutes across five matches, only one of them in the Champions League. He hasn’t scored or assisted and hasn’t played since November 8.
It’s true that injuries and COVID-19 have plated a part, but it’s also true that Mariano has moved ahead of the Serbian in the pecking order.
As such, he is looking at a departure and has been linked with his former club Eintracht Frankfurt and with AC Milan.
If he were to leave, it wouldn’t disrupt Zidane‘s plans for the rest of the season.
