Italian football club Fiorentina announced the signing of Serbian international striker Luka Jovic of Real Madrid, the Spanish national champion.
“Fiorentina is delighted to announce the contract with Luka Jovic of Real Madrid for a permanent contract,” Fiorentina said in a statement, without specifying the duration or value of the contract.
And Italian media reported that Fiorentina paid no compensation to Real Madrid in exchange for Jovic, who has two years left on his contract, noting that the royal club will receive 50 percent of the Serbian striker’s future sales value.
Jovic, 24, who moved from Eintracht Frankfurt to Real Madrid in the summer of 2019, failed to establish himself in the royal roster, scoring just three goals in two seasons before being loaned out to Eintracht last year.
Unlike his career at the Royal Club, the Serbian striker played with his country’s national team, scoring nine goals in 26 matches.
Jovic shone remarkably with Eintracht Frankfurt in the 2018-2019 season, scoring 17 goals in the “Bundesliga” notably.
Real Madrid signed the Serbian talent until 2025, but he never managed to confirm the hopes placed on him by the royal team, who spent €60 million to get him in the summer of 2019.
