Official: Luka Jovic completes €70m move to Real Madrid on six years contract

The Serbian international is linked to a long-term contract at the Santiago Bernabeu after completing a cash exchange from Eintracht Frankfurt

Real Madrid completed the signing of Luka Jovic from Eintracht Frankfurt with the highly respected striker signing a six-year contract with the Whites.

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

His return of 27 goals in 47 games attracted a lot of attention, with Real from several sides to cast admiring looks in his direction.

Those in the Santiago Bernabeu already won the race for the signing of the striker, with Jovic tied until the summer of 2025.

A brief statement from the League giants on their official website said: "Real Madrid CF and Eintracht Frankfurt agreed to the transfer of player Luka Jovic,
 pending a medical examination.

"The player will be tied for six seasons until June 30, 2025."

Real should spend a lot this summer after undergoing a testing campaign in 2018-19.

It is suggested that they parted with about €70 million (£62m / $79m) to bring Jovic.
They had to dig deep to get an agreement on the line, since Eintracht only recently got a permanent deal for the promising frontman.

The formation of the Bundesliga opted for a purchase option in the loan agreement, which saw him to be the best player in two seasons of Benfica.

An immediate profit was obtained, although the Germans are disappointed to be saying farewell to the player who impressed so much during his time in the
 Bundesliga.

Fredi Bobic Frankfurt sports director said: "Jovic is a huge loss for us.

"Their explosion and punctuation skills have spread throughout Europe and we have benefited not only from their goals in the past two years.

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

"For Eintracht Frankfurt, this is a good and important transfer. We wish Luka the best for his future.

"He has the best qualifications for a great career, and we are proud to be able to support him along the way."

Jovic will join a pool of talent in the Spanish capital, which includes Karim Benzema and Mariano Diaz.

He'll be waiting to hit the ground in La Liga, with Zidane's side needing inspiration from somewhere while they try to get back on the trophy track in 2019-20.
