It’s added that Jovic is seen as a long-term centre-forward for United, the Red Devils are short-staffed in this department and took Odion Ighalo on loan in order to solve this issue.

Luka Jovic has endured a difficult debut season with Real Madrid.

The report adds that Los Blancos aren’t against selling the out-of-form attacker as they could use the freed up funds to land some of their own summer targets.

From Jovic’s perspective, Fichajes report that the ace – who made waves with Eintracht Frankfurt before earning a big-money move – is open to joining a side that will make him a key member of the team.

Jovic has experience a very limited role this season, the ace has only scored two goals and chipped in with two assists in 24 appearances across all competitions.

Most of the youngster’s outings have been cameos off the bench, as Jovic has only started in 30% of his appearances.

Solskjaer’s work with Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial show that the former striker can work wonders with attackers and help take their game to the next level, this could make Jovic an ideal option.
