La Liga rivals interested in loaning in Real Madrid flop in the summer

When Real Madrid signed Luka Jovic from Eintracht Frankfurt in 2019, the Serbian international was considered the next big thing in world football. The club brought him in on a long term deal as a replacement for the ageing Karim Benzema.

However, Jovic has failed to deliver on all levels since. While the Frenchman grew from strength to strength and is now one of the best players in the world, Jovic went through the darkest period of his career.

According to reports from Mario Cortegana of MARCA, Getafe could be the light at the end of the tunnel for the Serbian. The La Liga side are reportedly interested in signing him on loan in the current transfer window.

Since he arrived in 2019, Jovic has been far from justifying the €60 million price tag that Real Madrid paid for him. He scored just two league goals in his first season in Spain and has been on a downward graph ever since.

In the recently concluded season, he started only one La Liga game for the champions and scored only once in close to 400 minutes.

Needless to say, Los Blancos are desperate to move on from their failed transfer. However, while the club are open to his exit, it is said that they will have to pay a part of his wages even if his move to Getafe is successful.

The deal could end up being a two-way move as Ancelotti is said to be interested in replacing Jovic with Borja Mayoral. The Spaniard is on loan at Getafe from Real Madrid and is a serious option to reinforce the squad for the coming season.

Following a solid end to his debut campaign at Real Madrid, Arda Guler is all set to play a key part for Turkey at the UEFA Euro 2024.

The 19-year-old wonderkid struggled with injuries during the first half of the last season at Real Madrid but eventually made the most of his chances towards the final phase of the campaign.

All in all, Guler finished the 2023/24 season with a tally of six goals from 12 matches, winning La Liga, Spanish Super Cup, and the UEFA Champions League.

Ahead of their Euro opener against Georgia next week, Turkey manager Vincenzo Montella gave an insight into how he plans to use the Real Madrid youngster – whether as a starter or from the bench, and his position.

“Arda generally played on the right wing in both Fenerbahçe and Real Madrid. If he played alone, he could be number ten, but for now, he seems to be closer to playing on the right wing,” said Montella (h/t Sporx).

On whether Guler is ready to start in the major European tournament, he added: “The most important thing is to be able to establish balance well. He played well in the last match, and we have the desire to start with him. However, I am still in the decision stage.”

So far, Guler has made seven appearances for the Turkish national team, in which he has netted one goal. And, he will be looking forward to adding to that tally at the Euros, whether he starts as a right-winger or a No. 10.
