Jovic joined Real Madrid for 60 million euros in the summer of 2019 but scored only two goals last season and the Serbian is yet to register this term.
“It has not been easy in Madrid for Luka recently.
“For him, it is important to come back to refocus.
“His great desire was to return to Eintracht,” said Frankfurt’s sporting director Fredi Bobic.
Real Madrid coach, Zinedine Zidane, has given Jovic only two La Liga starts this season.
“He is a striker who scores goals, it is what we want from him,” Zidane said on Wednesday.
“He hasn’t had any luck because he had difficulty adapting, with injuries, it’s not easy.
“What he has to do is learn a lot of things. I have no doubt about his quality.” (AFP)
