Real Madrid seal signing of Serbian striker Jovic

Luka Jovic

Real Madrid has officially announced its third signing of the summer window with Serbian striker Luka Jovic set to join the club after a breakout season with Eintracht Frankfurt.

Jović joins the club on a six-year deal, with MARCA reporting a fee between €60-65m.

Sky in Germany reported last month that the move is worth £52.4m (€60m) and the 21-year-old Serbia worldwide striker will earn £43.7m (€50m) in total or £8.7m a year.

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.

'But for us it was clear that there is a financial threshold.

Although just 21 years of age, he took Germany and Europe by storm last season with 27 goals and seven assists.

"From a sporting point of view, Luka Jovic is a huge loss for us", Frankfurt chairman Fredi Bobic said.

The colors on the panel will also remain accurate and avoid taking on a warmer, orange shade when at higher brightness. But as impressive as it sounds, there's just something about the way the Mac Pro looks that freaks us out.

The Spanish club will pay Eintracht Frankfurt a reported 65 million euros (73 million United States dollars) for the player the German club signed from Benfica for around 7 million dollars earlier this year after having him on loan.

Real Madrid confirmed the signing on social media Tuesday afternoon as did Eintracht Frankfurt.

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

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

Real were expected to spend big this summer after enduring a testing 2018-19 campaign.

While in the past Benzema, now 31, has had to deal with competition from Cristiano Ronaldo for the starring role, this season the Frenchman is alone at the top for Real Madrid. He can be the flawless partner for Karim Benzema, because Jovic is more a killer, a traditional "9", even if he is not very high (181 cm).
