In case you didn't know

Inform Serbian striker Luka Jovic has been on every big European club's transfer list this season after his brilliant performances for the German club.

The 21-year old has been an integral part in guiding Eintracht Frankfurt to their first European semi-final in nearly 50 years as well as helping the club in their race for Champions League football next season.

Luka Jovic is the second highest goal scorer in the Europa league with 9 goals as well as the second highest goal scorer in the Bundesliga with 17 goals.

The Heart of the Matter

As per reports, Real Madrid has successfully completed the signing of 21-year old Serbian international Luka Jovic from Eintracht Frankfurt for a reported fee of €60 million. Of the €60 million, €48 million will go to the Bundesliga club while the rest €12 million will go to Benfica.

Luka Jovic, who recently made his move to Eintracht Frankfurt permanent following his impressive two-year with the club, will sign a six-season deal with the La Liga giants.

The 21-year old is expected to give competition to Karim Benzema after Mariano Diaz disappointed the LaLiga giants since his return to the club.
