Real Madrid summer signing Luka Jovic could leave the club this summer, just two months after completing a £62 million transfer.
Jovic swapped Germany for Spain earlier this summer by securing a big-money move to Real Madrid.
But he could be on his way out of the club with reports claiming Zinedine Zidane isn’t convinced with the Serbian striker.
The Real Madrid manager has alerted clubs including AC Milan who are considering a loan bid for Jovic ahead of the new Serie A season, per Italian outlet Gazetta.
AC Milan have identified the 21-year-old as a target ahead of Italy’s transfer deadline – September 2.
Jovic, though, has laughed off speculation regarding his Real Madrid future.
“[Zidane] believes in me and his story has not changed during this time as we work together,” he told Novosti.
“I am learning from him day by day, which I am very pleased with, because he, as a player and as a coach, is at the very top of world football.
“[The media] always make me laugh. [They] will always deal with such stories [about me leaving Real Madrid]. I have been used to all kinds of comments since the beginning of my senior career, I have come to terms with the fact that there can always be those comments. Time will tell what is true.
“I’m ready to give the maximum and offer everything I can. I don’t even expect to play all of the games right away. However, through work and effort, I will reach my goal. I am pleased with the way the [club] have accepted me, I wish I could have scored at the start, but I am in no hurry. I know my [time] will come.
“It takes time to adjust to the club, the players, the style of play itself. I prefer to constantly contribute to my team and grow with it than to shine in a few games without me being anywhere. Each of us is different, adapting in different ways.”
Jovic enjoyed a prolific campaign last season as he bagged 25 goals in all competitions for Eintracht Frankfurt.
