Real Madrid president Florentino Perez repeated that the club will try to keep Doncic out of the NBA for a bit longer, but it will not be easy.

In an interview with Spanish newspaper “El Espanol“, Florentino Perez admitted that keeping Luka Doncic after this season will be more than hard.

“Every day that we can keep Doncic in the team is a luxury,” said Perez. “We are talking about one of the best players in the world, at the age of 18. We all want his professional life to be the best possible, but we will work with him to see if we can keep him a little longer.”

Real Madrid has been successful so far in keeping Sergio Llull out of the NBA and Perez expects that his injured star will be back in action sooner than February, as it was expected.”We will have him much sooner than we expected. Getting to the Final Four of the EuroLeague is a goal, but the most important thing is to win it”.
