Real Madrid have signed 21-year-old striker Luka Jovic from Bundesliga outfit Eintracht Frankfurt for €60 million, said reports on Sunday.
The Serbian striker, who was initially brought on loan to Germany from Benfica, scored 10 goals in Frankfurt’s sensational run in the Europa League where they were only knocked out in Penalties against Chelsea.
Jovic also netted 17 times in the Bundesliga helping Frankfurt remain in the contention for another European run next season. Atletico Madrid Transfer News: Antoine Griezmann, Lucas Hernandez, Rodri & More in the Confirmed and Rumoured List of Footballers Exiting Rojiblancos.

IN his two seasons at Frankfurt, Jovic has scored 36 goals in just 53 matches. Frankfurt had, exactly a month ago, exercised a clause in the striker’s loan agreement to make the move permanent.
