Luka Jovic Was one of the players that the FC Barcelona followed during months during the past season. Finally, the Barcelona technical office descartó to the Serbian forward by two reasons: one, the economic, since the Eintracht of Frankfurt asked 60 million euros and from the Camp Nou considered that it did not cost them; the second, that preferred bet by somebody more versatile like Antoine Griezmann.

Like this the things, finally the destination of the Serbian forward was the Real Madrid, that yes paid to the German club what asked him by him. However, his performance is not to the height of the expectations that generated his signing and Jovic has not been able to strengthen in the plans of Zinedine Zidane, that is used to him keep as acting of Karim Benzema and his paper sees reduced to revulsivo in second times.

Now already, not even this. The last reverse for the Balkan has arrived this Saturday, when the Real Madrid has made public the list of summoned for the Classical of this Sunday against the FC Barcelona and his name did not appear in the list. Like this it is: Zidane has decided descartar by technical decision to Jovic and bet by Mariano Díaz, that hardly has had minutes in the present campaign.

The true is that the Serbian forward is not taking advantage of the opportunities that offer him and, until the moment, has not justified the payment of these 60 million euros that the FC Barcelona did not want to offer him to the Eintracht of Frankfurt but that the Real Madrid disbursed in a footballer that was allocated to be important from this same season.

Of course, we are in front of a player of 22 years that still has a lot of margin of improvement and that hardly has had some months to adapt to the Real Madrid. Nevertheless, his fault of forcefulness and of influence in the game of the team have begun to destapar in the madridismo some doubts about his performance.

Also in problems with his selection

Now, the criticisms accumulate him to Jovic and no only in the Real Madrid​, but also in his selection. Ljubisa Tumbakovic, technician of the Serbian national team, smashed into the madridista in 'Blic Sport' does some weeks. "One of which has moved away of the selection is Luka Jovic. The only problem that has is he same", ensured. Has, therefore, a lot that improve.
