La Liga giants Real Madrid have completed their first signing of the season with Eintracht Frankfurt striker Luka Jovic joining in a £62million deal.

The forward will join the Real on a five-year contract, pending a medical, after the two clubs agreed terms on a transfer.

The £62m fee is the largest amount Real have ever paid for a striker.

The Serbian striker has become one of Europe’s most coveted forwards and a look at his exploits for the Eagles makes it clear why. In 32 Bundesliga games in 2018/19.

Eintracht Frankfurt’s sporting director Fredi Bobic said Jovic  will be a big loss for the club.

“His explosiveness and scoring skills have impressed throughout Europe and we’ve benefited not only from his goals over the past two years,” Bobic said.

“But for us it was clear that there is a financial threshold. For Eintracht Frankfurt this is a good and important transfer. We wish Luka only the best for his future,” he said.

“He has the best qualifications for a great career. And we are proud that we were able to support him along the way.”

He scored 17 goals and produced six assists. Add in the 10 in 14 UEFA Europa League outings and you get the drift. However, those are just the raw statistics which do not tell the full story of just how brilliant the 21-year-old is.
