Jovic, very close to Eintracht

Madrid finalizes with the German club the transfer of the striker for the remainder of the season. "He's about to join us," confirmed Bobic, sporting director.


Luka Jovic is very close to returning to Eintracht Frankfurt, the club from which Real Madrid signed him in exchange for 60 million euros in the summer of 2019. The news was advanced by the Serbian media Republika and AS has been able to confirm it by sources close to the operation. Those same sources assure that the operation is not yet closed, although it is well advanced. In Frankfurt they await him with open arms, as Fredi Bobic, the German team's sporting director, said on Tuesday before his team faced Bayer Leverkusen in the Cup. The manager confirmed that the deal is one step away from being sealed: "Jovic He is about to join us on loan until the summer. We still have some things to work on, like the medical check-up, but if all is well, he will soon be with us again. "

If made, it will be a six-month loan because the white club does not want to part with a player for whom they made a large investment and who is only 22 years old. Although Bobic did not close the door to something else: "It will be until summer. Especially in times of pandemic, it is the most responsible. Everything else can be reconsidered when you see how the situation develops in football and worldwide in these times of pandemic . Above all, it is about the remaining games. And, for that, we are very happy to have a very good option like Luka. "

AS already reported on December 28 that Madrid's intention, as in the previous market, was to seek a loan from the Serbian to regain the confidence it has lost during its year and a half in the Spanish capital. In the summer Zidane wanted to stay with Borja Mayoral as a replacement for Benzema, but when he did not find a destination for Jovic, it was finally the youth squad who packed his bags for Rome.

At that time he was associated with Eintracht, although the truth is that the Germans were not interested because they had other priorities. A situation that has changed in the current market, in an operation that all parties have been dealing with with great discretion for several weeks (contacts began in December) .

At the moment, different terms of the operation are still being discussed and Jovic will remain in Madrid (he has not traveled to Malaga due to alleged muscle discomfort) while waiting for the agreement to be closed. Right now all the parties trust that it can be made official in the coming days so that the Serbian reinforces the whole of Frankfurt as soon as possible.
