This is why Real Madrid spent the big bucks on Luka Jovic

This is why Real Madrid spent the big bucks on Luka Jovic

14 Jun 2019, 10:15

The Serbian hitman exploded onto the scene last season with Eintracht Frankfurt and now he's the man tasked with putting the ball in the back of the net for Spanish giants Real Madrid.

But what makes him so good?

 

The 21-year-old is a clinical striker in the mould of Ruud van Nistelrooy and Brazilian Ronaldo. He doesn't boast electric pace or a particularly muscular physique, but the timing of his runs and the instinctive nature of his finishing with both feet mean that he's bound to be worth his weight in gold. 

His composure in front of goal makes him the perfect number 9, but he's also tenacious and equally happy giving defenders a hard time with his relentless work rate. In short, he's a manager's dream. 

Time will tell how things go for him in the pressure cooker environment of Real Madrid's Santiago Bernabeu, but Luka Jovic has all of the ingredients to develop into one of the best predatory strikers in world football.
