Real Madrid are reportedly keen to sell Serbian striker Luka Jovic, who does not appear to feature in the plans of new manager Carlo Ancelotti.
Madrid-based news outlet AS are reporting that Jovic’s former club Eintracht Frankfurt would be interested in re-signing the forward if their Portuguese striker André Silva were to leave the club this summer amid interest from Premier League sides Manchester United and Chelsea.
Real Madrid Keen to Offload Luka Jovic
Striker Has Previously Made Impressive Impact for Eintracht Frankfurt
Additionally, experienced Frenchman Karim Benzema is playing arguably the best football of his career in the Spanish capital, meaning opportunities would likely come at a premium for 23-year-old Jovic if he were to stay on the books at the La Liga giants.
However, one club who would certainly welcome the Serbia striker’s services is Bundesliga side Eintracht Frankfurt, a club for whom Jovic boasts a stellar goalscoring record.
Over the course of his previous spells with the German club – Jovic has made two loan moves and one permanent transfer to Frankfurt previously in his career – the striker has scored 40 goals and registered 11 assists in 90 appearances across all competitions.
Jovic Future Could Depend on André Silva
Reported by AS, a transfer back to Frankfurt for Jovic would likely prove impossible unless the club were to offload André Silva, who is currently on international duty with Portugal at Euro 2020.
Silva has been linked with both Manchester United and Chelsea already this summer, and any transfer would green light a return to the Bundesliga for Jovic, who is under contract at Real Madrid until June 2025.
25-year-old Silva excelled in the Bundesliga last season, scoring 28 goals and providing a further eight assists in 32 matches.
