Igor Jovicevic, Gvardiol’s previous coach, wants him to join Los Blancos. Shakhtar Donetsk coach:
“He’d play for any elite club.” PSG, Barcelona, Real Madrid if it were up to me. I’m done listening. I’m shocked Real Madrid didn’t sign him two or three years ago, though I understand why they waited.
