Jovic, the conditions to stay at Milan

If at a certain point in the season the Serbian seemed one step away from a renewal, now the situation is less defined again. It will depend – also – on the investment for the first tip

Option or no option? At Milan, the dilemma remains this. The Rossoneri are studying the market in search of the “9” of the present and future, but in the background the future of Luka Jovic and the slot for the reserve striker also remain topical. The Devil reflects on the possibility of renewing the attacker’s contract and keeping him in the squad for another year, but there is no shortage of doubts. Question of balance. Economic, technical and even tactical.

ongoing reflections

The starting point is a long hypothetical period that describes a situation to be defined. A work in progress, which in recent weeks touches on multiple aspects of the Rossoneri world. From the technical guide, with Paulo Fonseca in pole position after Pioli’s departure, to the future starting striker, to be placed at the center of the attack to take up Giroud’s legacy. What is certain is that Jovic’s future will largely depend on the investment in the market: the more important the spending on the next number 9 – like Sesko or Zirkzee – the more his prices as assistant will rise because Milan should only renew his contract. Different story in case of swerve on a profile like Guirassy, ​​less expensive by virtue of a clause (of 17 and a half million) that is tantalizing (even if the salary would be high). An investment of this kind would partially reduce the initial expenditure expected for the center forward, with the possibility of also thinking about another terminal.

ups and downs

The current deal with Jovic expires in June and all possibilities are open at the moment. Also because the Serbian’s season at Milanello summed up what his career has been so far. Clear technical potential and ups and downs on the pitch, with excellent performances often alternating with ghostly matches. With Pioli he made 29 appearances, 9 goals and one assist, giving his best especially during the ongoing match (with 4 goals) and starting from December. After three months of appearing. He scored the first goal against Frosinone and responded against Atalanta, Salernitana, Udinese, Frosinone again and Sassuolo in the league, without forgetting the brace scored against Cagliari in the Italian Cup and the flash against Rennes in the Europa League. In between, the expulsion against Monza, for the blow to Izzo, and a two-match suspension which slowed down his recovery at his best. When the renewal almost seemed like a formality.

tactical balances

The other data on which the upper levels reflect is projected towards the field. Jovic could be a good backup striker for next season, given that he already knows Milanello and his teammates, but he struggles as a first striker and is at his best in a two-man attack. He performs better next to another center forward, sharing the department. He was seen in Milan and also in the past, when Real had shelled out 60 million to secure him after the golden months at Eintracht Frankfurt. Another doubt in via Aldo Rossi.
