Jovic wants to forgo Barça deal for SGE – “He doesn’t know if he can play there”


“I’m not about money” 

“If we reach the Champions League, they won’t get rid of me here,” Eintracht Frankfurt’s striker Luka Jovic said with a laugh in a “Bild” interview last December. SGE is six matchdays away from the end of the season and 4 points away from a Champions League qualifying spot. Striker Jovic thinks of staying in Frankfurt despite lucrative offers, according to his father.

“Luka may have inquiries. There are some from Barcelona. But he has no interest. He doesn’t know if he can play football there,” Milan Jovic told the “Bild.” The paper visited the father in the Serbian’s hometown of Batar. “He was here a few days ago and said, ‘Dad, I’m not about Money. I want to play Football.’ He wants to go into the Champions League with Frankfurt and continue to stay. He is very friendly with the other players in the squad,” Milan Jovic explained. At the Spanish Champions, Jovic would most likely only be a substitute for Luis Suárez (32), at least in the next season.

In addition to Barça, Bayern Munich is also said to be seriously looking to sign the 21-year-old professional. Other potential takers in the TM rumor mill are Real Madrid and PSG. Frankfurt’s sports board member Fredi Bobic told the “Welt” at the end of March: “We do not have an offer for Luka. We know the player is being watched by the big clubs in Europe. That’s fact. And that conversations about the player are taking place in the background is also obvious. That’s normal. Due to his age and performance, Luka is certainly the hottest commodity in Europe at the moment.”

A circumstance that Milan Jovic is also well aware of: “Luka does not want to be against Frankfurt. When the club says, ‘We have to make money with you,’ then he doesn’t want to be against the interests of the club.” Jovic, with 17 goals is just behind Bayern’s Robert Lewandowski (30) for top scorer in the Bundesliga. Jovic is actually currently only on loan from Benfica Lisbon, however, the Frankfurters have a purchase option for the striker amounting to around 7 million euros, which has only not yet been drawn for business reasons.
