German League giants Eintracht Frankfurt have completed the signing of Real Madrid forward Luka Jovic on loan until the end of the season.
The 23-year-old has struggled for playing time since he moved to Santiago Bernabeu in a deal valued at around €60 million in 2019.
And 18 months later, the Serbian has made just 32 appearances with two goals and two assists for Los Blancos across competitions.
Having made just five appearances in the first half of the 2020-21 campaign, the attacker has however been sent back to his former club for more playing time.
Goal revealed that the Spanish League giants refused to put an option for the Bundesliga side to sign the player permanently in the agreement.
Jovic established himself as one of the most prolific strikers in the Bundesliga during his first spell with Frankfurt but has struggled to live up to the same high standards in the Spanish capital.
Frankfurt sporting director Fredi Bobic delighted to see a talismanic figure retrace his steps after a frustrating period in La Liga. He said at Jovic’s unveiling on Thursday.
“Luka didn’t have an easy time in Madrid recently. It is important for him to get back on track. It was his great wish to return to Eintracht.
“Luka can use the next few months to find his way back to old strength in a familiar environment. Real Madrid know that he is in good hands with us and that he can develop here. And it is clear to us that we have another excellent option in the storm centre.”
Jovic could be in line to feature when Frankfurt play host to Schalke in the Bundesliga on Sunday night.
