Real Madrid is reportedly considering keeping the services of Luka Jovic. According to Cadena Cope, Los Blancos could now be able to retain the intruder for at least another 12 months.
Despite high hopes on the part of the Serbian international since his big-money move to Bernabeu, only two goals and one assist from 15 outings for Real in La Liga have been contributed by Jovic.
This led to speculation as to the exit of the 22-year-old, most likely on loan due to the financial consequences of the coronavirus pandemic.
Now, there are talks of keeping him at Real. Much could rely on how club officials are willing to reduce their wage bill by unloading a number of other players.
The President of the Liga, Javier Tebas, has recently argued that Real and rivals Barcelona must reduce costs in order to comply with new regulations for Spain’s top flight.
