After a season of struggle for Real Madrid, their summer rebuild has continued with the acquisition of Luka Jovic from Eintracht Frankfurt on a five-year deal.
The Serbian forward will cost an initial €65m before add-ons.
“From a sporting point of view selling Luka Jovic is a big blow,” said the Eintracht Frankfurt sporting director, Fredi Bobic. “His explosiveness and capacity to score goals propelled us into Europe and we have benefited from more than just his goals in the past two years.
“But it was clear that there was a limit to what kind of bid we could refuse. For Eintracht Frankfurt this is a good and important transfer. We wish Luka all the best in the future. He has all the attributes to have a great career. And we are proud that we have supported him on his way.”
