Eintracht Frankfurt have confirmed former Milan transfer target Luka Jovic is returning to Germany on loan from Real Madrid.
The reports had emerged earlier today that Jovic was available to leave the Bernabeu on a six-month loan deal.
Although Milan had been interested, particularly over the summer, he has chosen a return to Eintracht Frankfurt.
“Luka Jovic is on the verge of a loan to us until the summer,” confirmed Eintracht director of sport Fredi Bobic on Sky Sports Deutschland.
“We still need to sort out a few things, for example the medical. If it all comes together, he’ll soon be back with us.”
Eintracht Frankfurt sold Jovic to Real Madrid for €63m in July 2019, but he struggled to make an impact.
