“AS” brought this Friday the information that Real Madrid is very close from bringing Luka Jovic, from Eintracht Frankfurt. The 21-years-old Bosnian would come to fight for Benzema’s position on next season.
The idea of the German team is to get good money with this young player. They bought him from Benfica for €6 million and will probably sell him 10 times more than that. €60 million is the amount that is being speculated, and 20% of this value would go to his ex-team.
Real Madrid is already talking to the player’s manager, Fali Ramadani. He sees with good eyes the Merengue project. On the other hand, he seems not liking Barcelona’s, another team interested in the player so far.
Jovic scored 25 goals in 41 matches for Frankfurt this season. He is the second goal scorer on the German League, with 17 goals (behind Lewandowski with 21 goals). And is also the second goal scorer on the Europa League with 8 goals (behind Giroud with a total of 10 goals). The young Bosnian is a really important player for Eintracht and will be a good help to Madrid. The Spanish side doesn’t have a good forward to fight with Benzema for a position. And it is important to say that the French player is already 31 years old. We don’t know for how long he will continue playing football.
Zidane’s Real Madrid has already the forward Rodrygo (from Santos) and the defender Éder Militão (from Porto) hired for next season. They also try negotiation with the Belgian midfielder Eden Hazard, from Chelsea.
After that terrible season for the team that had been winning almost everything, it was expected a lot of moves on the market. For the team, these new players will be very important, if they play all they are capable of playing. And bringing Jovic is certainly a good option to the attack.
