Manchester United is discussing a late transfer for Luka Jovic, according to Real Madrid’s price tag.
Luka Jovic of Real Madrid has been linked with a move to Manchester United.
Luka Jovic hasn’t been at his best since joining Real Madrid from Eintracht Frankfurt two years ago. The Serbian international was brought in to compete with Karim Benzema, but he has only scored twice in La Liga since his £52 million transfer. And now, according to reports, a summer switch to Manchester United is in the works, with the Red Devils reportedly ‘discussing’ a deal.
Real Madrid are willing to part with a number of players in order to secure a late deal for Kylian Mbappe.
The France international is their major aim, and with Lionel Messi expected to join Paris Saint-Germain, he may be allowed to depart once his contract expires.
Real might raise finances by selling Jovic, who has been a significant disappointment since joining from Eintracht Frankfurt in 2019.
With only two La Liga goals to his name, the Serbian international has his work cut out for him this season.
But he may not spend his time in Spain, as Tribal Football reports that United and the 23-year-old are in talks regarding a possible transfer.
Despite Edinson Cavani staying and Jadon Sancho joining from Borussia Dortmund, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is said to be unhappy with his attack.

Jovic is believed to be highly regarded by Solskjaer, who believes the Serb can turn his career around with a late move to Old Trafford.
United also appears to be open to improving their offense, despite their desire to sign a new right-back and midfielder.
What about a price, though?
In June, AS reported that Real had set a £35 million price tag on the player, which is a significant drop from the £52 million they paid for him just two seasons ago.
Jovic was once one of Europe’s most lethal teenage strikers, but he has struggled to adjust to life in Spain.
