Real Madrid star Luka Jovic completes Fiorentina switch

Real Madrid striker Luka Jovic has completed a free transfer move to Serie A side Fiorentina.

The Italian side have been working on a deal to bring the Serbian international to Florence since the start of the month.

Jovic has struggled to make an impact in Madrid following his 2019 move from Eintracht Frankfurt.

His haul of 40 goals in 93 games in Germany tempted Los Blancos into a move but he leaves the Spanish capital with a miserable return of three goals in 51 appearances in Spanish football.

The deal represents a major financial loss for Real Madrid after they paid £56m to bring him to the club.

However, according to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, Real Madrid have included a 50% sell on clause in the deal, to allow Fiorentina to avoid paying a transfer fee.

Real Madrid will keep a close eye on Jovic’s progress in Italy as he seeks to get his career back on track.
