Real Madrid have completed the signing of Luka Jovic from Eintracht Frankfurt on a deal until 2025.

The 21-year-old Serbia international emerged as one of the most sought-after talents in European football during the 2018-19 campaign.

Jovic will wear the famous white Real Madrid shirt next season after his former club Eintracht Frankfurt confirmed the striker moves to LaLiga on a five year deal.

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.”

Jovic took Germany and Europe by storm last season with 27 goals and seven assists.Many other clubs were interested, but Real Madrid moved ahead of the pack. He is a goalscorer who can help out Benzema, as he is a great finisher and is also great in the air. With Eder Militao and Rodrygo already signed and Eden Hazard and Ferland Mendy on the way, Real Madrid‘s summer has started well.

Real Madrid complete signing of Eintracht Frankfurt striker Luka Jovic

Real Madrid have reportedly completed the signing of Eintracht Frankfurt striker Luka Jovic for £52.4million, as reported by Sky in Germany.

Jovic has been hugely impressive on loan at Eintracht Frankfurt this season, with the German club having recently exercised an option to sign him permanently from Benfica this summer.

Real are now set to bring in Jovic on a five-year contract as they look to bolster their resources as part of a summer rebuild.

Frankfurt will pay Benfica around £10.5m of the transfer fee, as reported by Sky Sports.

Jovic has been excellent this season – he has scored 27 goals in 47 appearances in all competitions, and helped Frankfurt to reach the semi-finals of the Europa League.

Having performed to such a high standard, Jovic is also being monitored by Premier League champions Manchester City.

However, it seems that the Serbia international is set for Real, who are determined to improve upon a campaign that sees them 18 points adrift of leaders Barcelona going into the final day of the campaign.

After starting out at Red Star Belgrade, Jovic joined Benfica in 2016 but played just four times for the Portuguese club before heading to Frankfurt on a two-year loan deal.

Frankfurt still have two Bundesliga fixtures remaining this season – away to Bayern Munich and at home to Wolfsburg – after which there is likely to be an official announcement on Jovic’s future.
