Real Madrid’s newest signing Luka Jovic is thrilled to see his dream has come true as he bid farewell to the Eintracht Frankfurt supporters.

Real completed a reported €60m transfer for Jovic on Tuesday following months of speculation. The striker has agreed on a six-year deal and may rival Karim Benzema for a spot in the line-up.

At 21 years old, Jovic is one of the most exciting young talents to emerge in European football after a breakthrough campaign at Eintracht. He bagged 27 goals in 48 appearances in all competitions to help the club to a seventh-place Bundesliga finish and the Europa League semi-finals.

Eintracht were, therefore, quick to sign Jovic on a permanent deal from Benfica in April for just €6m before the Serbian complete his move to Los Blancos this week.

“Dear Eintracht fans, as you have already read, I will move to Real Madrid,” Jovic wrote on Instagram.

“Of course, I would like to take this opportunity to contact you here again with a few words.

“I really enjoyed the last two years at Eintracht Frankfurt. I met a lot of great people and played in a fantastic club, which was also made by the fans to something very special.

“We can be proud of our achievements. I will never forget this Europa League season with you! The highlight was, of course, the DFB Cup win 2017-2018 in Berlin! That’s why it’s not easy for me to leave Frankfurt.”

Jovic added: “However, Real Madrid opens a huge door for me to become an even bigger footballer. Every child has this dream of playing at such a club. My dream comes true now.

“I would like to thank the whole club and the great fans. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to develop my personality!

“Thank you for your support! You will always have a place in my heart! Your Luka.”
