The Serbian international was supposed to act as Karim Benzema’s understudy and chip in with goals but has been supplanted to the Real Madrid bench.
After a slow start to life in Bundesliga, Luka Jovic scored 27 goals in 48 competitive appearances. His valuations skyrocketed throughout the course of season and Eintracht Frankfurt decided to profit from his impending capture.
The German club made a 53 million Euro profit in a single day after signing Jovic’s from Benfica for 7 million Euros. Real Madrid wanted someone to stand up in case Karim Benzema faltered and Jovic’s name came up.
The move has not materialized as everyone would have hoped and here are the reasons.
