Savic could join Juventus, says his agent
Stefan Savic has been in fine form for Atletico Madrid and has been linked with a move to Juventus. The former Manchester City defender is seen as a replacement for Daniele Rugani, who is a target for Chelsea, Real Madrid and Manchester United.
Talking about the rumours, Savic's agent said, “Juve? His contract with Atletico expires in 2022. He’s happy in Madrid. We’ll see, however, what happens in the future. That’s all I can say right now. The rumours about Savic don’t surprise me because they’ve always existed.”
Real Madrid close to signing Éder Militão
The FC Porto centre-back has a €50 million release clause right now and Los Blancos are set to activate it. The clause will increase by 50% to €75 million in July, but Madrid are working on getting the deal done before June i.e when the summer transfer window opens.
Barcelona agree terms with Luka Jovic
Barcelona's hunt for a long-term replacement for Luis Suarez has come to an end. The Catalan side had brought in Paco Alcacer but with him moving to Borussia Dortmund, the search was back on.
Reports now suggest that Barca have agreed terms with Luka Jovic, who is currently on loan at Eintracht Frankfurt. The Benfica star has a €45m release clause in his deal but reports suggest that the Bundesliga side can sign him for as little as €12 million as their loan deal has an option to buy as well.
Chelsea and Real Madrid were also in the hunt for the Serbian striker but Barcelona are currently leading the race for him.
