Four clubs interested in ’fed up’ Real Madrid striker

When Luka Jovic signed for Real Madrid in 2019, he was thought to be the next big striker in Los Blancos’ history. The Eintracht Frankfurt forward scored 27 goals in his last season at the club and garnered a €60 million price tag with his formidable numbers.

However, things went downhill for the Serbian since his move to Spain. In his first season at the club, he only scored two goals and provided one assist. In 2020-21, he failed to produce any goal contributions before being loaned back to Eintracht Frankfurt for the second half of the season.

This season, Jovic has played in 13 games and managed only one goal and two assists. Carlo Ancelotti does not trust the Serbian. He is ‘fed up’ of his situation, and wants to move in the summer.

According to reports from MARCA, several clubs from the European top flight have expressed their interest in the 24-year-old.

Arsenal and Everton from the Premier League are two of the interested parties and wish to snap him up in the summer. From Italy, AC Milan have emerged as a strong possibility too.

Moreover, Jovic has also been identified by Borussia Dortmund as a backup option if the deal for Karim Adeyemi breaks down.

Real Madrid are said to be open to the idea of loaning the player with a purchase clause attached. The fee they are looking for is said to be around the €20 million ballpark.

Looking ahead to next season, Jovic’s loss is not expected to make a big difference to the squad strength. The potential arrivals of Kylian Mbappe and possibly Erling Haaland provide the team with sufficient cover in the forward department.

U-turn? Benzema hints at Real Madrid stay during ceremony: “Reality is not the internet”

There has been a lot of talk around Karim Benzema’s situation over the course of the last week or so, with reports claiming that the Frenchman was on his way out of the Santiago Bernabeu.

With his contract expiring at the end of the season, it was reported that Benzema was joining Al Ittihad as part of an incredible deal worth nearly €200 million. The striker was also offered 100% of his image rights and advertising deals by the Saudi government.

Over the last day or so, it has been reported that the move is all but official at the moment, as Benzema has accepted the offer, and will soon inform Real Madrid about it.

Benzema was awarded the MARCA Leyenda awards for contribution to sports today, and speaking during it, he dropped a rather cryptic message about his future – one that says quite the opposite to what has been in the news recently.

“Speak to the fans? Speak about what? Why should I speak of the future if I’m in Madrid?”, Benzema said.

“It’s the internet speaking, and reality is not the internet,” he added.

This certainly falls away from the departure line for Benzema, who was reportedly already contemplating his life away from Madrid.

At first, though, he was hesitant about speaking about his future, saying, “Staying or leaving Real Madrid? At the moment, I’m here…we have a game on Saturday.”

He repeatedly talked about the fans, calling them the best in world football. He also said, “I know how much Real Madrid fans love me. I feel that when I’m on the pitch, I give my best for them, always.”

“I always say that we play with 11 on the pitch but also with a crucial factor, Real Madrid fans,” Benzema concluded.
