After announcing two key arrivals in the form of Antonio Rudiger and Aurelien Tchouameni, Real Madrid now look to make progress on the departures front. Of the many names on the exit list, Luka Jovic finds himself on the top of it.

According to reports from Fabrizio Romano, Fiorentina are close to signing the player from Real Madrid. The deal would be in the form of a loan with his €6 million salary shared between the two clubs.

Only the final details remain to be completed before the official announcement. The player could be in Florence as early as next week to undergo his medical tests and sign his new contract.

Since his arrival from Eintracht Frankfurt in 2019, the Serbian has struggled to recreate his Bundesliga heroics. In three La Liga seasons, he has found the back of the net only thrice.

The player was brought in by Zinedine Zidane, who did not give him a fair run in the team, and the trend continued under Carlo Ancelotti.

As it stands, the Serbian’s contract with Real Madrid is until 2025. Given that there are three years left on his deal, it will be difficult for the club to part ways with him.

There has been no talk of a purchase option in the deal with Fiorentina, meaning that Jovic will return to the Bernabeu after a season. However, Los Blancos will hope that he produces some eye-catching performances in Italy that cause his market value to surge before he returns.

It remains to be seen if there is any loan fee involved in Jovic’s move this summer. Nevertheless, the space created on the wage bill will be valuable to accommodate any upcoming arrivals.

Real Madrid considering move for Manchester City superstar as club faces possible sanctions

Premier League has come up with a shocking statement, charging defending champions Manchester City with more than 100 breaches of the financial rule between 2009 to 2018.

The allegations levelled at Man City could lead to a point deduction for the defending champions or perhaps even expulsion. This could prove to be significant for not Premier League but European football in general.

To that end, a new report from Daily Mail suggests Real Madrid are keeping close tabs on the situation. They are aware of the fact that if Man City get sanctioned, it could rule them out of the chase for top target Jude Bellingham.

But more importantly, it may open up the opportunity to sign Erling Haaland in the near future. The Norwegian international was one of Man City’s smartest business move in the summer when they roped in the star striker for a meagre fee.

However, Spanish media believes Haaland has a release clause in his contract worth around €200 million. It could be activated in the summer of 2024 and clubs like Real Madrid are said to be interested in activating the clause.

But in light of the recent allegations made against Man City, Real Madrid are anticipating a potential mass exodus, and could make an early move for the forward, especially if the English giants get sanctioned by the Premier League board.

It goes without saying that Haaland, who has been scoring goals for fun since joining the Premier League outfit, is someone who demands to play at the highest level of football. It was one of the key reasons he joined Man City – a club that can offer consistency in terms of sporting success.

But a potential sanction for City could change the dynamic, possibly paving the way for a club like Real Madrid to establish themselves as an excellent suitor for Haaland.
