Real Madrid have announced the agreement to sign the Serbian striker Luka Jovic from Eintracht Frankfurt. Los Blancos will pay €60M plus other €5M in variable clauses. Florentino Pérez finally signs a striker for the team after the lack of goal in the last season. Karim Benzema has a good partner in the attacking line.
It was not a secret that Real Madrid were very interested in signing one of the best striker in Bundesliga and they finally made it official. It’s the third signing for the new Zidane’s project after Rodrygo and Militao. This season he scored 27 goals and gave 7 assists, becoming one of the best players in Germany.
Benfica will receive 30% of the transfer fee because the Lisbon club sold the players recently for only €6M after a loan. Therefore, Eintracht have done a great business selling the player only some months later for €60M. Although the price is quite high, Los Blancos can be happy after signing one of the most successful strikers in Europe, followed by many big teams.
He was born in 1997, so his youth and the willingness to sign for Los Blancos were key to get the new player on board. He can be the perfect partner for Karim Benzema, because Jovic is more a killer, a traditional ‘9’, even if he is not very high (181 cm). Now Mariano Díaz becomes the third forward in the squad and his continuity in the team is not granted because Rodrygo will also become part of the squad.
Since Benzema’s signing in 2009, Florentino Pérez had not signed a ‘9’ for the club. Adebayor or Chicharito arrived on loan to the club, whereas Álvaro Morata or Mariano Díaz were bought thanks to a clause included in their contract. Cristiano Ronaldo’s exit left the squad with a big lack of goal, so Jovic will be crucial to amend this big problem in the last season.
