Real Madrid give up on Luka Jovic, Barcelona back in the race

Today’s rumors start with news that Real Madrid haven’t actually signed Luka Jovic from Eintracht Frankfurt and may even have changed their mind completely about the striker.

According to El Chiringuito TV, Los Blancos have decided against bringing Jovic to the Santiago Bernabeu after being told he will cost €100 million.

And that is not all, Real Madrid’s decision to look elsewhere to reinforce their attack means that Barcelona are back in the Jovic game and could land him this summer.

Celta reject Barcelona bid for Maxi Gomez

Meanwhile, there is more talk of strikers over at Mundo Deportivo. They have been listening to Radio Galega who reckon Celta Vigo have rejected a Barca bid for Maxi Gomez.

Apparently the Spanish champions were willing to offer €25 million for the Uruguayan striker, but Celta will not sell for less than €40 million.

Gomez does have a €50 million release clause, but he also has three years left on his Celta contract and the club are in no rush to sell.
