Eintracht Frankfurt sporting director, Fredi Bobic, has discussed star forward, Luka Jovic's future at the club, admitting Jovic leaving Germany to play for Real Madrid is a "real possibility."
Many sources have linked the in-demand forward with moves to La Liga clubs, Barcelona and Real Madrid. However, while both giants are interested, Madrid are reportedly a little ahead of their bitter rivals and are determined to make the deal official as soon as possible.

Bundesliga juggernauts, Bayern Munich, are also interested in Jovic's services, but the 21-year-old Serbia international is reportedly more interested in plying his trade in Spain.
Madrid, who have struggled to perform in front of goal this season, could really do with a striker of Jovic's quality. The young striker has scored a whopping 25 goals in all competitions this season, with his two-year loan deal from Benfica becoming permanent last week itself.
Frankfurt are indeed grateful to have a striker of Jovic's quality within their ranks, but they know they probably won't be able to keep him if European giants come calling.

Amid the growing speculation over Jovic's future, Eintracht director Bobic told ZDF: "There's a real possibility that Jovic signs for Real Madrid," as quoted by Goal.
"I hope and want him to stay here at Eintracht, but I'm also realistic and know that if a big club like Real Madrid want him then we haven't got a chance of keeping him."
