If Robert Lewandowski decides to leave Bayern Munich, the club is said to be interested in signing Real Madrid misfit Luka Jovic
According to a report by the Spanish daily SPORT, Luka Jovic has appeared on the radar of Bayern Munich. They are considering bringing him to the Allianz Arena during the summer transfer period. In a stunning move, the Real Madrid misfit has surfaced as a potential replacement for Robert Lewandowski. He may be on for a move to Barcelona.
When Luka Jovic joined Real Madrid from Eintracht Frankfurt in July 2019, he was expected to have a smooth transition into the Spanish capital. The Serb has been unfortunate. His arrival at Real Madrid coincided with the most prolific and important years of Karim Benzema’s career at the club. As a consequence, the player has only a supporting role for Los Blancos this season.
Jovic has made 49 appearances for Real Madrid. He has scored three goals and provided four assists in the process. Because the 24-year-old’s career is stalling at the Santiago Bernabeu, his departure from Real Madrid will be a positive move on the correct path. And Bayern Munich is an unexpected suitor for the Real Madrid renegade. They might be on the verge of bringing him back to the Bundesliga soon.
Bayern Munich is showing an interest in Jovic as a result of the many uncertainties surrounding Lewandowski’s future with the club. In the face of interest from Barcelona, the Bavarians have been emphatic that the Polish striker would remain at the Allianz Arena beyond the summer transfer window.
What’s next for Los Blancos?
However, given Lewandowski’s precarious employment status, it is impossible to exclude a summer exit before his contract expires next year. Due to this, Bayern Munich will need to be on the lookout for new signings in the market. Numerous prospects are appearing on their radar as potential summer targets. Luka Jovic, a former Real Madrid player, has surfaced as a potential transfer target for the Bundesliga winners.
It is difficult to see how Jovic can replace the vacuum left by Lewandowski’s departure to the Allianz Arena. He has been unable to carve out a spot in Real Madrid’s first squad. But the Serbian international is a better player in the Bundesliga.
The 24-year-old has also drawn interest from Premier League giants Arsenal and Everton. Numerous Serie A teams also indicated an interest in signing him. It will be intriguing to watch whether Bayern Munich can solidify their interest in the Real Madrid misfit or if he decides to join another club after his release from the Santiago Bernabeu.
