Barcelona Retreat, Manchester City Accelerates Transfer Luka Jovic
Eintracht Frankfurt striker Luka Jovic is likely to have a new club in the summer. The striker is reportedly being sought to move to Manchester City next season.
Jovic himself is currently being contested by a number of top European teams. This season he has made 26 goals for Frankfurt in all competitions so that the elite European teams fell in love with him.
Jovic himself was reportedly busy going to join Barcelona. But the players father confirmed that the Serbian national team striker had rejected the offer of the defending La Liga champions.
This situation according to The Sun began to be used by Manchester City. The Citizens are rumored to be starting to boost the transfer process of the striker to the Etihad Stadium.
Long Term Solution
According to the report, Pep Guardiola is eyeing Jovic as a plan for his anticipation in the summer.
Pep is reportedly projecting Jovic as a long-term replacement for Sergio Aguero. Because the striker is currently aging and his performance is starting to show a declining graph even though it is not significant.
In addition, Jovic was also targeted just in case Gabriel Jesus decided to leave the Etihad Stadium after he did not get many hours playing in the first team of The Citizens.
The report also claims that Manchester City are really serious about bringing Jovic.
Manchester City reportedly began actively monitoring the progress of the striker in Frankfurt. Most recently they watched the game as Frankfurt faced Benfica early this morning in the first leg of the Europa League quarter-finals.
No half-hearted, is the City Sports Director, Txiki Bergiristain who observes the strikers action directly. As a result City claimed to be really serious to hook the 21-year attacker.
I don't think he will play instead of Aguero or Jesus
