Jovic not interested in Barcelona, claims father

The young superstar is hot property

The Blues are evidently keen on adding a new striker to their ranks, but it seems Manchester City are closely watching the 21-year-old as he continues to shine.

It was an eventful night for teenage striker Joao Felix and English referee Anthony Taylor as Benfica took control of their Europa League quarter-final tie with Eintracht Frankfurt.

But Barcelona are said to be preparing a €50m bid for Jovic as they seek a long-term successor to Luis Suarez, offering Eintracht the chance to make a significant profit.

But the shimmering homegrown talent netted twice more either side of a Ruben Dias header to become the youngest player to hit a Europa League treble, although Goncalo Paciencia did later give the visitors a handy second away goal to take back to Frankfurt.

"The truth is that Luka wants to stay in the Bundesliga and qualify with Eintracht for the Champions League".

China March copper concentrate imports fall on-month, aluminium exports rebound
China's exports rebounded from a slump in March and sales to the United States rose despite President Donald Trump's tariff hikes. This was higher than a survey of economists by Bloomberg, which had forecast growth of 6.5 per cent.

"Above all, Luka wants to play football and he does not know if he can do it at Barcelona".

Frankfurt are now on course for a top-four finish in the Bundesliga, which would see them qualify for the Champions League next season.

Jovic - tipped to sign for Adi Hutter's men on a permanent basis at season's end - responded 20 minutes later, Ante Rebic breaking into the box and selflessly squaring for him, but parity lasted less than three minutes.

Yet Jovic's father told Bild that his son has always been grounded and turned down offers from Borussia Dortmund, Schalke and Arsenal as a boy.
