Barcelona has found replacement for Suarez

For the last six months the Catalan Barcelona have been looking for a successor to the striker Luis Suarez. According to the latest information from As, Blaugranas saw the replacement of Suarez in the face of German Eintracht striker Luka Jovic.

The Catalan club is going to get the striker after the end of the current season. Barcelona are going to pay no more than 60 million euros for Jovic, according to the source. It is known that last week the Serbian’s agent met with the sports director of Blue Garnet Eric Abidal. During the meeting, functionaries discussed options for moving the attacker from Germany to Spain.

The player himself looks at the situation positively and doesn’t mind being in the grandee of Spanish football. Given the circumstances, Jovic is ready to spend the next season in the role of Suarez's mate, not having a place in the first team. This will help the player to adapt to the realities of Spanish football, in order to later replace the 32-year-old scorer.

In the 26 rounds of the Bundesliga, Jovic scored 15 goals and made 5 assists. His Eintracht takes 5th place and claims to get into the Champions League for the next season, and last week passed Inter in the round of 16 of the Europa League, thanks to a goal of the hero of this material.

However, it is too early  for Jovic to go Barcelona. The Catalans do not trust young players very much and marinating a productive forward on the bench is stupid. The attacker loses the stimulus, runs out psychologically and is unlikely to show results after a year of stagnation. The best option is loan with option to purchase.

For Jovic it is desirable to feel the taste of the top matches of the Champions League. Now his team is aiming for 4th place in the league, from which it is separated by one point. There are a lot of promising players with examples of moving to Camp Nou. One of the last is Paco Alcácer. The Spaniard, after leaving Barcelona for Borussia, scores every 62 minutes, avoiding Mbappa and Messi by this indicator. Therefore, the 21-year-old Jovic should not hurry to move to Camp Nou.
