Jovic has struggled at Real since his £54.8million move to the Bernabeu from Eintracht Frankfurt in the summer of 2019. Real are willing to send him away on-loan this season.
AS says United have now joined the race for the striker.
Real are willing to let Jovic leave on loan and want him to join the club where he would play the most minutes.
United want to add strength in depth up front and have earmarked Jovic as a player who can do just that.
The Serb made a name for himself during his two years at Frankfurt, especially in the 2018/19 season where he scored 27 goals in all competitions and helped the German side reach the Europa League semi-final.
