Expectations are always high at Real Madrid and every time the Spanish giants break the market to land a young player, you know it's just a matter of time before they start feeling the pressure to deliver.

However, Serbian legend Savo Milosevic feels like Luka Jovic can handle the pressure and live up to the task of being Real Madrid's striker for the future, lauding the former Eintracht Frankfurt standout:

"(It's) definitely not going to get bigger than this. It's going to be tough for Luka, it will be difficult, but he possesses such a great quality of scoring goals. He is a goal machine. It's a big club (where) there is a lot of pressure and it's important how he starts. He is still young but psychologically, if he can handle the pressure of a big club, things will be good for him," Milosevic told Omnisport, as quoted by AS.

Moreover, the Serbian went on to claim Jovic was the perfect signing for any big club in the world, as well as making a bold prediction for his future at Santiago Bernabeu:

"He is a player that every big club in the world needs. Those players with a capacity to score 25-30 goals a season, there isn't many of them. He is definitely one of them." I believe they will be a little bit patient with him because of his age, but not too much, Madrid are a big club and they won't wait a long time. Luka scored 25-30 goals last season and I believe Madrid are bigger with better potential. Madrid will create chances and if Luka starts well and collects confidence from the beginning, things could go in the right direction immediately," he concluded.

Zinedine Zidane will most likely turn to Karim Benzema to start the season but Jovic is going to be one of the first men off the bench right out of the gate for Los Blancos, so he'll have plenty of chances to prove his worth during his debut campaign at Santiago Bernabeu.
