Rumour Has It: Real Madrid consider Haaland-Jovic swap, Mbappe move on hold

Jovic-Haaland trade?

Madrid are open to using Jovic as part of a swap deal to sign Dortmund star Haaland, according to a leading Spanish sports outlet.

Jovic joined Madrid in a €60 million move at the start of the season after scoring 27 goals for German outfit Eintracht Frankfurt last term, but the Serbia forward has only managed two in 24 appearances under Zinedine Zidane.

Meanwhile, Haaland – who only arrived at Dortmund in January – has scored 12 goals in just 11 matches, prompting widespread interest.
