Real Madrid have closed the signing of 21-year-old Luka Jovic for €60 million according to a report from Spanish publication, AS. Of the total €60 million sum, €48 million will go to Eintracht Frankfurt, while the remaining €12 million will be paid to Benfica as per a clause in Jovic’s contract granting the Portuguese club 20% of any future sale. The Serbian, who has exploded onto the scene this year with 26 goals and 5 assists, will sign a contract for six years, reports Managing Madrid.
