Luka Jovic: Real Madrid set to land 26-year-old sensation for a massive fee of €60 million as the Spanish club are certain to bolster the squad before the next season.
Real Madrid have secured the services of Luka Jovic for a fee of €60 million. This will be the second signing of Zinedine Zidane, after taking the charge of Los Blancos again, with a deal already in place for Eder Militao.
The Serbian International has been in stunning form this season, amassing 26 goals and 7 assists across all competitions. His exceptional exhibits have attracted several top clubs including Barcelona. However, the 21-year-old forward opted for the arch-rivals Real Madrid.
Moreover, the signing is taking place amid a massive squad overhaul by the club board, as Los Merengues have struggled this season. The early exit from the Champions league and disappointing league position propelled Zidane to look for reinforcements for next season.
Furthermore, Real Madrid were in crisis this season after sacking two managers in a single season and losing to arch-rivals in three El clasicos out of four.
On the other hand, Luka Jovic is playing a crucial role in Frankurt’s succesful campaign in the Europa league. Therefore, Zidane would hope for much required revival next season by giving the 21-year-old ace striker a crucial role.

Luka Jović, what a player. 60m is a bargain for a borderline world class player like him.
