'Hazard and Jovic are substitutes in Real Madrid' ᠆ Predrag Mijatovic

Former Real star Predrag Mijatovic has not been impressed by the transfer targets identified by Zinedine Zidane in a crucial summer for the club.

Real Madrid may have a deal for Luka Jovic wrapped up and one for Eden Hazard along the way, but Predrag Mijatovic has accused Zinedine Zidane of “signing substitutes”.

Additions will be made to plug any gaps, with Real having already put a €70 million (£62m) deal in place for Eintracht Frankfurt striker Jovic.

Real are now pushing ahead with a €120m (£106m) bid to bring playmaker Hazard on board, before attention can then switch to other targets.

Mijatovic believes much more will be required, with the former Madrid frontman not convinced that Zidane is either identifying or being handed the right options.

He told El Larguero: "We're signing substitutes. I'm not convinced Zidane knows Jovic very well.

"He [Zidane] has a lot of work to do."

A man who tasted La Liga and Champions League glory during his time with the Blancos added on a forward following in his striking footsteps: "I know Jovic very well, he's a goalscorer.
"He's young and we'll have to give him a little time to adapt, but he's a player who can be very useful.

"You can't demand 20 goals from him in his first season."
