Madrid add Jovetic to options

Carlo Ancelotti has reportedly added Fiorentina’s Stevan Jovetic to Real Madrid’s list of strikers to consider this summer.

Los Merengues are seen as in the market for a forward this summer, in light of Gonzalo Higuain’s expected departure.

Edinson Cavani and Luis Suarez have primarily been linked, but their high valuations of €63m and €47m respectively has Madrid apparently considering other options too, in light of otherwise pooling resources to fund a €90m move for Gareth Bale.

Reports in England suggest that former Arsenal and Juventus target Jovetic is one such alternative, lower-priced forward that the capital club are now considering.

It is understood that Ancelotti has added the 23-year-old to the club’s list of possible recruitments this summer.

Jovetic has previously been valued by his club at €30m, but it is believed that a bidding from Madrid may start at €22m.
