The terms of the deal are unique and sporting director Daniele Prade deserves huge credit for negotiating them. Jovic will initially join a two-year deal, with Fiorentina and Madrid each paying half of his €5m salary. After this period, the Tuscans can immediately sign him free of charge and pay him 6 million euros per year; while this is a huge wage, it is minimal when viewed as a transfer fee rather than pure compensation.

At the very least, Prade blocked the young but established international striker for the next 2 years for a fraction of his market value, which is an outstanding achievement.

Transfermarkt values Jovic at €16m.

Jovic moved to Real Madrid from Eintracht in the summer of 2019, the transfer amount was € 63 million. Due to difficulties in adapting to the new league, the striker was already on loan – the player returned to Eitracht for the second part of the 2020/2021 season.
