Luka Jović will be confirmed as a Real Madrid player as soon as next week, reports in Spain claim.
A deal has seemingly been struck with both his current club Eintracht Frankfurt and the player himself.

AS claim that Los Blancos will announce the signing of Jović next week when their domestic season has came to an end.
The reason no announcement has been forthcoming as yet is because both teams still have games to play, with Eintracht’s clash with Bayern Munich particularly important in their bid to secure Champions League football.
It is a similar situation with another Real target Eden Hazard, whose season will not conclude for another few weeks as Chelsea prepare for a Europa League final clash with Arsenal.
The Serbian striker will cost €60m and will represent a massive profit for Frankfurt, who recently acquired his services from Benfica on a permanent basis for a fee of €7m.

Although interest was high across the continent in Jović, it seems the race for his signature will soon be at an end.
The striker has scored an impressive 27 goals in all competitions this season for Eintracht.
