It appears Manchester United is quite active this week ahead of the transfer window deadline, they are after a Real Madrid forward’s loan.

Manchester United has been predominantly quiet during the transfer window but they seem after a Real Madrid forward. Their attempts to sign Jadon Sancho reached the end of the road today after Borussia Dortmund rejected a new €90 million offer. This left the Red Devils with other options to explore and some of them are appealing to the fans.

The first one was Ousmane Dembele, but they only want him on a loan as Barcelona wants to sell him. This opens the door to another player from the Spanish La Liga who isn’t playing too much. The player in question is none other than Luka Jovic, the Serbian striker from Real Madrid. Zinedine Zidane doesn’t seem to like the former Eintracht Frankfurt player as a starter right now and wants him to leave on a loan.

Jovic himself would like to return to Frankfurt but Los Blancos prefer sending him to a more competitive league in order to gain more prestige. This is where Manchester United is trying to make an entrance. 

Jovic also likes Manchester United.

Although the player wants to go back to his comfort zone in the Bundesliga, the Premier League does appeal to him. The thought of playing in the most competitive tournament there is, can be a decisive factor for Jovic. Manchester United would like to buy the player but the Spanish giants only accept a loan because they still believe he has potential.

Solskjaer’s squad was trying to sign Edinson Cavani but his wage was a major obstacle. Jovic is more likely to agree on terms if they reach an agreement with Real Madrid. Zidane actually wanted Mariano and Mayoral to leave before Jovic, he managed to convince the Spaniard.

However, the former Lyon striker refuses to leave as he wants to succeed in Real Madrid. This leaves Jovic with very few options due to his age and his poor performances as of late. Diario AS reports that the talks are ongoing and we might know some fresh information in the next couple of days.
