Barcelona have no agreement with Jovic
According to Football Espana, Barcelona have no agreement with Eintracht’s 21-year-old striker Luka Jovic, despite many media statements.
Nevertheless, ESPN and Mundo Deportivo confirm that the Catalans want to acquire the footballer in the summer, and intend to begin negotiations in the near future.
It is noteworthy that Benfica own the attacker’s contract, but the Germans have the right to buy out the player for €8 million, so Barça will have to negotiate compensation amount with Bundesliga’s club.
Jovic has been part of Eintracht since 2017. The 21-year-old player has played 27 matches for the German club in the current season, scoring 19 goals and giving 4 assists.
