Real Madrid’s Luka Jovic made a name for himself with Eintracht Frankfurt in the Bundesliga before jumping to Spain. Could he be on his way back?
Possibly leaving Real Madrid in January, after a year and a half in, Serbian international striker Luka Jovic (turning 23 on December 23) has allegedly been targeted by Manchester United. Tracked by AC Milan as well, Merengues disappointing hitman is to date rather likely to join Eintracht Frankfurt back.
Bayern Munich is reportedly interested in Everton prospect Thierry Small. Just, 16-years-old, is being (loosely) compared to Alphonso Davies, but that hype has been enough to make Arsenal, Juventus, Wolfsburg, Valencia, Monaco, and Benfica also keen to look at the youngster:
