Borja Mayoral Could Stay with Los Blancos

Borja Mayoral Could Stay with Los Blancos


Borja Mayoral is currently playing the European Championship U-21 in Poland with some of his colleagues like Marco Asensio, Marcos Llorente or Jesús Vallejo. The striker could be part of Real Madrid squad for the next season, especially if Álvaro Morata and Mariano Díaz leave the club.

Mayoral left the club last summer going on loan to the German team Wolfsburg. His time in Germany wasn’t as good as expected. He only played 426 minutes in 20 games, including Bundesliga and German Cup, scoring only two goals. Besides, Wolfsburg played a very poor season, fighting to avoid relegation until the last minutes. Finally, they stayed at the Bundesliga by winning the play-off.

Despite this bad year, Zinedine Zidane has confidence in the Spaniard and he could stay in the first squad next season, especially if Morata and Mariano leave. Álvaro Morata has a lot of offers to leave the club and Mariano will be sold with a buy-back clause.

Real Madrid are receiving many offers for Borja Mayoral but at the moment they’re rejecting them. Leganés have shown their interest but Los Blancos don’t want to accept any offers at the moment. Mayoral has a really good reputation and he’s enjoying some minutes with Spain U-21, but he hasn’t been able to score any goal yet in the European Championship.

If Mayoral stays, he’d have a secondary role in the squad. He won’t be able to have as many minutes as Morata, who was very important in the club and scored 20 goals during the season. However, he will have more opportunities than Mariano Díaz, who only played 302 minutes this season.

At least, Zinedine Zidane has many option also in the forward line. We’ll have to wait some weeks to see if James Rodríguez, Cristiano Ronaldo, Álvaro Morata or Mariano Díaz leave the club. Once the club knows this situation, they could decide which players should be bought and if Mayoral has space in the dressing room.
