Why does Eintracht prefer to sell Jovic to Madrid?
According to 'AS', the relationship between Real Madrid and Frankfurt's Eintracht is better than good. A few recent transfers can confirm it is indeed the case, and now Luka Jovic is the latest to be scouted for the Spanish team.
Real loaned Jesús Vallejo to Eintracht, where he gained some experience in the field of play before returning to back to the Spanish capital. They also sold Oscar Mascarell (later recovered) and Lucas Torró to the German club. Real Madrid and Eintracht are clubs with clear ties; this would mean that if the Spanish are interest in Jovic after his great season in Germany, he could be joining their ranks this summer.
On loan from Benfica, Eintracht's wish would be to buy the player so that when the moment comes, they can cash in on his talents as a footballer. Since his name is on the agenda of several large clubs, profits should be high.
And if the Eintracht has to choose the highest bidder, Madrid should not have any trouble in making that offer, as their recent track record would suggest.
Certainly, Madrid gets along well with several German clubs. Dani Carvajal was loaned to Bayer, Achraf is on loan to Borussia Dortmund... Even James Rodriguez plays for a direct competitor, Bayern Munich.
If added proof was needed, Eintracht are also invited to play in the Bernabeu Trophy in 2020.
