3 reasons why Luka Jovic could be a massive success with Real Madrid
Real Madrid confirmed that they have secured the services of Eintracht Frankfurt forward Luka Jovic. Los Blancos paid around €60 million for Jovic and the player is set to sign a 6-year deal with his new club.
Jovic enjoyed a meteoric rise to fame during his tenure in Bundesliga. The 21-year-old was unable to make his mark at Benfica before he was eventually loaned to Frankfurt last summer. Jovic took the German top flight by storm, ending up with 27 goals and 7 assists in all competitions in 2018/19 campaign.
Owing to his exploits in front of goal, Frankfurt made the loan move permanent as Jovic was one of the most sought-after players in Europe. At just 21, the striker is already being hailed as the next big thing due to his efficiency in front of goal. There is little doubt about the fact that top clubs including Barcelona were interested in signing the player.
Los Blancos were desperate to secure the services of the Serbian and his inclusion from the next season will be a huge boost for them. There is no doubt that Jovic will be a huge threat to the opposition if he keeps honing his skill set.
Without further ado, let us evaluate why the transfer of Luka Jovic to Real Madrid is likely to be a massive success in the near future.
#3 Youth prospect
Luka Jovic ended up with 17 goals in the Bundesliga, jointly third with Marco Reus and Wout Weghorst in the top scorers' list. The Serbian sharpshooter is still only 21 and if he keeps improving at this rate, he might become one of the top goalscorers in the world in the near future.
Real Madrid are already investing in youth prospects as evident with players like Marco Asensio, Ceballos, Vinicius and Rodrygo joining the club. A player like Karim Benzema is on the wrong side of 30, which is why a prospect like Jovic remains pivotal for the future of the club.
If Jovic fulfills his potential and Madrid manages to hold on to him, Madrid's attack will be in safe hands for a long time.
