Real Madrid have begun work at full throttle in the departures section after announcing two new signings early in the window – Antonio Rudiger and Aurélien Tchouameni.

While the situation of several players is uncertain, there has been little doubt over the future of Luka Jovic, the €63 million-rated signing that failed to prove himself at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Last week, it was reported that Fiorentina were in very advanced talks with Real Madrid to sign the Serbian international. The official announcement was thought to be close, but negotiations hit a roadblock soon after.

Jorge Picon of Goal Espana has released more news about the discussions between the clubs. As opposed to the initial proposal of Real Madrid sharing the player’s wages with Fiorentina, the Italian club will now pay 100% of his salary.

However, the player’s wage has been reduced because of Fiorentina’s inability to match the amount he was paid in Madrid. Moreover, Los Blancos are now forced to pay compensation for the money that Jovic was going to earn in the remaining years of his deal.

Given that the striker’s contract with Real Madrid was until 2025, the club now have to shell out the salary he would receive for three years.

It is speculated that Carlo Ancelotti’s side will retain 50% of the player’s rights, meaning they will receive half of any future transfer fee involving the player.

Despite it being an economically draining operation, Jovic’s departure is seen as a much-needed one. The Serbian has struggled to recreate his best form in Spain despite being given multiple chances to showcase his talent.

The 24-year-old played 15 league games for the club last season, scoring just one goal and providing three assists. The official announcement of his transfer is expected to be made tomorrow.

Joao Cancelo’s loan move to Bayern Munich from Manchester City in the final days of the January transfer window came as a huge shock.

The Portuguese international signed for the Bavarian giants on a loan deal until the end of the season with a non-mandatory purchase option worth €70 million.

But, according to Fabrizio Romano, before his move to Bayern Munich, Cancelo was also offered to Real Madrid, who decided against signing any player in the January transfer window.

The Manchester City loanee has been on Los Blancos’ radars in the past, but the club made it clear that they are uninterested in signing any new players during the winter window.

As things stand, Dani Carvajal and Lucas Vazquez are Carlo Ancelotti’s options at right-back, but there are concerns over their fitness and longevity.

But, as things stand, Real Madrid have no plans to sign a new right-back in the summer as they have full faith in both Carvajal and Vazquez.

Furthermore, Romano adds that the Merengues believe that they have a top right-back for the future in the form of Vinicius Tobias.

The teenage Brazilian joined the club in April last year from Shakhtar Donetsk on loan with a purchase option. He has been earning rave reviews for his performances for Real Madrid’s Castilla outfit under Raul Gonzalez.

So, there is a good chance that the Spanish and European champions will sign Tobias permanently.

All these factors seemingly compelled them against making a move for Cancelo when he was offered to the club last month. The Portuguese international has already made his debut for Bayern Munich and registered an assist on his debut.

Whether they decide to sign him permanently for €70 million in the summer remains to be seen. As for Real Madrid, though, there do not seem to be any imminent plans to reinforce the right-back position.
