Once a beacon of brilliance on the field, Luka Jovic’s fall from grace was an unexpected blow for Real Madrid, who paid €60 million to Frankfurt in 2018 for the striker’s services.

Whispers of off-field distractions, injuries, and waning form forced Jovic to eventually close his chapter at Los Blancos by leaving for Fiorentina.

Real Madrid were compelled to sell the Serbian striker on a free transfer.

While the Royal Whites attempted to fetch a fee for him until the end, by allowing him to leave for free, they were saving themselves €30 million in wages.

Leaving as a free agent, despite initially being bought for a hefty price tag, Jovic ended up being one of the worst purchases in recent history for the Merengues.

Jovic’s sale may finally yield some money

Now, as per Mundo Deportivo, Jovic leaving Fiorentina is on the cards, and any potential transfer will indirectly benefit Real Madrid too.

Although the 25-year-old left Madrid on a free transfer, Real Madrid still negotiated 50 percent of the striker’s rights, so they would receive half of any future sell-on fee.

The report argues that Jovic could be on the exit ramp, but it is not something that is being considered at the moment in the Italian club’s hierarchy.

The right-footed centre-forward of La Viola has accumulated 13 goals in 45 games and intends to continue plying his trade in Italy.

In the event that a transfer opportunity comes his way, Madrid will, at last, yield a return on Jovic’s sale.

Any subsequent fee received would, in turn, help Madrid with Financial Fair Play and recruitment strategy, with Kylian Mbappe currently in the club’s crosshairs.
