Manchester United still have plans to bring in three players before the end of the transfer window.
A right-winger is top of their wish list, as well as a left-back, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is open to the idea of bringing in a striker.
Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial can play up top but the early fizzle Odion Ighalo brought in has gone out.
Several options have been listed and one of them includes Real Madrid star Jovic.
The Serbia international joined last summer but failed to make much of an impact and he had been listed for a potential loan away to recoup some confidence.
United had been one interested party but they are not the only club he has been offered to.
According to Fabrizio Romano, teams from the Bundesliga, as well as AC Milan and Roma, have also been offered the chance to sign Jovic.
But Real Madrid are also considering keeping hold of the ex-Frankfurt striker.
That is because Los Blancos are in the process of selling Borja Mayoral to Roma, meaning Zinedine Zidane only has Karim Benzema up top if Jovic goes too.
There is still hope from Real's coaching staff over the Serbian but he has a long way to go in convincing Zidane over his credentials.
The Frenchman has been ruthless with members of his squad in the past, including Gareth Bale who was ostracised.
Romano goes on to state that Jovic is not a primary target of United's, while Edinson Cavani has also been offered to the club.
The Uruguayan has left Paris St-Germain after seven years and is on the lookout for a new team.
Conversations have been held between parties but Cavani is asking for a long-term contract and huge wages.

At 33, his best days could be behind him and there is history when it comes to signing big-name strikers on the wane.
On one hand there is the success Zlatan Ibrahimovic had when he signed for one season, helping United win the Europa League before injuries.
But there is also the case of Falcao, who suffered a shoddy year on loan from Monaco.
