Serbian striker Luka Jovic has just completed a €70m move to Real Madrid, as the Spanish giants look to rebuild after a disappointing season.
Real Madrid who are still looking to sign Chelsea attacker, Eden Hazard, have signed the highly-rated striker penning a six-year contract from Eintracht Frankfurt.
Luka Jovic emerged as one of the most sought-after talents in European football during the 2018-19 campaign.
His return of 27 goals in 47 appearances attracted plenty of attention, with Real one of several sides to cast admiring glances in his direction.
Eintracht sporting director Fredi Bobic stated:
“On a sporting front, Luka Jovic leaving is a big loss for us. His explosiveness and scoring skills have spread throughout Europe and we’ve benefited not only from his goals over the past two years. But for us it was clear that there is a financial pain threshold.
For Eintracht Frankfurt this is a good transfer. We wish Luka only the best for his future. He has the best qualifications for a great career. And we are proud that we were able to support him along the way..”
A brief statement from the Liga giants on their official website read:
“Real Madrid CF and Eintracht Frankfurt have agreed to the transfer of player Luka Jovic, pending a medical examination.
“The player will be tied to the club for the next six seasons, until June 30, 2025.”
