Recent speculation has claimed that there is an increasing chance that Luka Jovic could end up signing for Real Madrid this year. The rumors of Jovic leaving have been around for a while, but they mainly focused on the interest of Barcelona in the Eintracht Frankfurt striker.

However, the club’s sporting director Fredi Bobic has now come out and said the Santiago Bernabeu is a realistic destination for the striker.

“There’s a real possibility that Jovic signs for Real Madrid,” he said.

“I hope and want him to stay here at Eintracht, but I’m also realistic and know that if a big club like Real Madrid want him then we haven’t got a chance of keeping him.”

Real Madrid’s rumored interest first popped up around 10 days ago with a report from Marca. Jovic has been on fire this season, with 17 league goals thus far.

The price is reported between 60 and 70m euros, which is something Real Madrid and Barcelona can both afford.
