The operation out of Real Madrid is still underway and can take a turn that was not expected a few weeks ago: They look for a way out for Jovic. At the club they are concerned about the low level offered by the Serbian in his first season and also about his extra-sports problems. At the same time, they are sure that at 22 years of age the situation is perfectly retractable.
That is why they have decided to seek a loan for him to regain the lost trust. A club in which you play 40 games. With Benzema's current level (he started with four goals against Getafe) it is difficult for Jovic to have under Zidane's orders the continuity he needs to regain his best level.
Once the decision to leave on loan has been made, the difficult thing now is to find a perfect destination. Nor there are many clubs that can assume the high record that he receives in Madrid and that also guarantees him ownership. In that sense, Milan is one of the teams that has insisted the most in recent months and relations with the Italians are very good after closing the Brahim loan, which will be there until June 2021.
Jovic's departure can open new avenues at Real Madrid. In the current squad, Mariano would remain as the only natural replacement for Benzema, but Zidane does not have him. Also at the club they are very angry because he has constantly rejected the offers that have been put on the table to leave.
With these ingredients, Zidane has another plan in his head: Borja Mayoral. The one from Parla has many offers on the table (Valencia, Lazio, Fiorentina, Levante …) but is still waiting to solve his future. He has been training with the rest of his teammates for weeks and his work and professionalism dazzle Zizou. At the moment, the idea is that he is called up against Real Sociedad in the first league game. And his continuity in the squad is on the table …
