LUka Jovic aims to be the first Real Madrid player to find a destination. After the goodbye of Isco, Marcelo and Bale, it is now the turn of those players for whom the leaders of the Madrid team are looking for a destination and as expected the Serbian forward is the one that seems easier to direct. In this case, towards Fiorentina.
The outlook seemed clear until today, but changes in the approach to the operation have led to an unexpected setback, although the three parts seem condemned to understand each other.
Jovic welcomes continuing to play football in a league like Serie A and that his destination is Florence, while the two clubs want to reach an agreement. The relationship between the two entities is more than satisfactory since Odriozola’s transfer was finalized last year.
Real Madrid has never hidden that what they were looking for was a transfer, while Fiorentina intends, at least in the first year, an assignment and without taking charge of the totality of the record, something that the white leaders do not contemplate. In addition, the purchase clause is also a source of disagreement. Mandatory or not, that is the question.
A similar situation is going through Mayoral
Jovic’s departure has the approval of Carlo Ancelotti, who has not seen in the Serb the player he needs as a possible replacement for Benzema. Something similar happens with Borja Mayoral, but at the moment there is not so much urgency for a possible transfer. What’s more, Getafe is expected to end up wanting to close an operation that it left open during last season’s loan period.
The Serbian striker is looking for those minutes and that confidence that he has not had at Real Madrid. Neither Zidane asked for his transfer first, nor has Ancelotti now seen the Serbian as the footballer he needed. His time at the white club, until now, has not had any relevance.
