The deal, which has been speculated for weeks, is already a fact. Real Madrid has announced that it has drawn Luka Jovic from Eintracht (Frankfurt), and while the two sides do not report financial details about the passage of the Serbian blade to Santiago Bernabeu, the media in Spain and Germany claim that it is a transfer amount of 70 million euros.

Jovich, who scored 27 goals for Eintracht in all tournaments in the 2018/2019 season, will sign the “white” for 6 years. The talented striker has become one of the most discussed names in European football after he came out on the big stage in the past campaign, and Frankfurt sells him with a big profit. The Commerzbank Arena team benefited from a lease clause with Benfica and redeemed Lucca for just 7 million euros.
Jovich’s professional career began in Belgrade where he spent two years between 2012 and 2014 and scored 13 goals in 48 games and then went to Benfica. In the Portuguese Grand Prix, he recorded just 4 games for the club’s first team without being able to scratch, and for the doubles of the Lujo team, he scored 4 times in 18 games.
Last October, the striker became the youngest player to score 5 goals in a Bundesliga game, and earlier this year he made his debut for Serbia’s national team.
