Luka Jovic to join Eintracht Frankfurt on loan

0

Real Madrid outcast Luka Jovic is set to secure a loan at former club Eintracht Frankfurt.

Jovic made a name for himself on the German side in the 2018/19 season, scoring 27 times in 48 appearances and also registering seven assists. That form was enough to convince Real to sign him for over £ 50million that summer.

Since arriving at the Santiago Bernabeu, he has been massively disappointed, managing just two goals in 32 appearances, as well as numerous problems off the pitch.

As Serbian media Republika (via Marca) reports, Real Jovic’s nightmare may soon end with Frankfurt ready to take back its former star on loan until the end of the season. The deal is said to be “practically closed”, although there are still a few small details to be finalized before it materializes.

It is also understood that there will be no option to purchase a negotiated clause.

Jovic has barely played this season, making just five appearances in all competitions and failing to return a single goal or assist. His imminent exit suggests Real may have given up on him and their interest in Kylian Mbappe is well known. However, if he leaves, it will leave Los Blancos short of genuine alternatives for Karim Benzema.

Mariano Diaz, who suffered a frustrating second stint at Real due to injury, is said to be the only senior player capable of replacing Rodygo who is currently injured with another save option.

Frankfurt are currently in ninth place in a crowded Bundesliga table, well away from relegation spots and just five points behind fourth-placed Borussia Dortmund. The arrival of Jovic would add another source of goals to the squad with only Andre Silva (11) and Bas Dost (four) scoring more than twice so far this season.
