His latest transfer to the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu is worth around 60m euros and 30 percent of the fee being paid by Real Madrid will go to Benfica as well.MARCA reported on April 14 that Real Madrid wanted the Serbian striker and now Zinedine Zidane has his man.

Although just 21 years of age, he took Germany and Europe by storm last season with 27 goals and seven assists.Many other clubs were interested, but Real Madrid moved ahead of the pack.

He is a goalscorer who can help out Benzema, as he is a great finisher and is also great in the air even if he's not especially tall at 1.81 metres.

With Eder Militao and Rodrygo already signed and Eden Hazard and Ferland Mendy on the way, Real Madrid's summer has started well.
