Real Madrid striker Luka Jovic has received significant interest from Milan.
Luka Jovic’s start to life at Real Madrid hasn’t exactly gone to plan for him.
He’s struggled to obtain playing time behind club legend Karim Benzema, he has faced criticism from his national team coach, he got into trouble for breaking quarantine rules in Serbia, and he most recently suffered a fractured foot.
That said, the 22-year-old has a world of potential. He scored 20 goals in the 2018-2019 Bundesliga season for Eintracht Frankfurt, which is why Zinedine Zidane and Los Blancos decided to pay 60 million euros to the Bundesliga club for his services.

Jovic could play a key role for Real in 2020-2021 with increased playing time as Benzema’s backup, as Los Blancos must figure out if he can be Benz’s long-term successor.
If not, they will then move to a different young Bundesliga star striker in Erling Haaland.
Real Madrid are fully expected to keep Jovic for at least one more season, but that hasn’t stopped other clubs around Europe from being linked to the talented forward.
Per a report from A Bola, via MilanLive.it, AC Milan would like to sign Jovic on a two-year loan deal with an option to buy.
Milan recently benefited from a deal with Real, signing out-of-favor left back Theo Hernandez, who has become one of the top players in Serie A.
Jovic legitimately has the talent to score 30 goals in a season for Milan and has plenty of familiarity with Milan forward Ante Rebic from their days together in Frankfurt.

However, Real need Jovic. They have other players who can play at striker, but they would probably rather sell Mariano Diaz than loan a player they want to see more of. Plus, a two-year loan deal involving Jovic is too long, and there’s no way they give Milan the benefit of an option to buy. This suggestion from Milan is another pipe dream.
