Real Madrid are hopeful of completing deals for Luka Jovic and Mario Gila in the next few days, according to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano.

Real Madrid are currently in talks with Italian side Lazio for the transfer of 21 year old Real Madrid centre-back Gila.

Gila joined the Real Madrid academy in 2018 and made swift progress at the club, becoming a pivotal figure for Real Madrid Castilla.

He made his first-team debut against Espanyol last season and made another appearance against Levante.

Gila, whose current contract ends in 2024, has been valued at €10million, with Lazio now set to pay €5million for his transfer and 50 per cent of his rights.

Real Madrid will reserve 50 per cent of the rights of the 21 year old defender and also have a right of first refusal.

Italian side Fiorentina are closing in on signing Jovic from Real Madrid this summer.

Fiorentina are reportedly already planning for the medical of Jovic next week.

The Serbian striker will join Fiorentina on a season-long loan deal.

Jovic has failed to replicate the form that earned him a move to Real Madrid. After scoring 40 goals in 91 appearances for Eintracht he’s hit a measly 3 in 51 for Madrid.

Fiorentina want Real to cover at least 50% of the Serbian’s salary for the duration of the deal, which would be €3m each.

Gila and Jovic are expected to leave Real Madrid for Lazio and Fiorentina respectively in the next few days.

Meanwhile, Real Madrid are now set to sign RB Leipzig forward Christopher Nkunku for just €60million in the summer of 2023.

Nkunku emerged as a transfer target for Real Madrid after scoring 35 goals and providing 19 assists for RB Leipzig last season.

Real Madrid will be unable to sign the 24 year old France international forward this summer after he signed a new contract with RB Leipzig this week which expires in 2026.

However, the contract has a release clause of €60million which can be triggered in the summer of 2023.

Real Madrid are all set to trigger the €60million release clause next summer and president Florentino Perez is confident the club can beat competition from Chelsea and Manchester United.
