Luca Jovic joins Real Madrid, Eintracht Frankfurt confirm

Real Madrid have announced the signing of Luka Jovic from Eintracht Frankfurt for a reported fee of €60million.

Real Madrid has made quite the splash in the summer transfer window, but it's not for the player you are probably thinking of. "The player will be tied to the club for the next six seasons, until 30 June 2025".

He impressed mostly as a substitute under former coach Niko Kovac but excelled under successor Adi Hütter last season, prompting Frankfurt to take its option to make the loan permanent for a reported fee of about 10 million euros ($11.5 million).

"On a sporting level he is a big loss for us", said Frankfurt sports director Fredi Bobic.

"His explosiveness and scoring skills have spread throughout Europe and we've benefited from his goals over the past two years".

"But it was clear that there was a limit to what kind of bid we could refuse. It's an important and good piece of transfer business for Eintracht Frankfurt". We wish Luka all the best in the future.

"He has the best perspectives for a brilliant career".

"And we are proud that we were able to support him along the way".

Meanwhile, the former Madrid and Spain coach Julen Lopetegui - sacked by both past year - has been appointed as Sevilla's new head coach.

Jovic played a key role in Bundesliga side Frankfurt's run to the Europa League semi-finals before they were knocked out by Chelsea in a penalty shootout at Stamford Bridge.

Jovic will be leaving Eintracht Frankfurt after an incredibly successful season and the German club expressed their sadness that the Serbian was leaving the club.

It could also see a return for Real Madrid to a two-man strike force with Jovic alongside Benzema, a formation often used by Zinedine Zidane to previously accommodate Ronaldo.

Madrid are said to to have forked out around £58 million for the signing of star forward according to a report by SunSport.
