Italian football club Fiorentina announced on Friday the signing of Serbian international striker Luka Jovic from Spanish league champions Real Madrid.
“Fiorentina is pleased to announce the signing of Luka Jovic from Real Madrid on a permanent contract,” Fiorentina said in a statement, without specifying the duration or value of the deal.
Italian media indicated that Fiorentina did not compensate Real Madrid for adding Jovic, who still has two years remaining on his contract, noting that the royal club will receive 50 percent of the Serbian striker’s future sale value.
Jovic, 24, moved to Real Madrid from Eintracht Frankfurt in the summer of 2019, having failed to establish himself in the Real team, scoring just three goals in two seasons before being loaned to Eintracht last year.
In contrast to his career with the club, the Serbian striker excelled with his country, scoring nine goals in 26 appearances.
Jovic, 23, has been impressive with Eintracht Frankfurt during the 2018-2019 season, scoring 17 goals, notably in the Bundesliga.
Real Madrid signed the Serbian talent until 2025, but he never succeeded in convincing the club, who spent 60 million euros to bring him in the summer of 2019.
