Real Madrid bosses are waiting for a resolution for Álvaro Morata’s case. But only Zinedine Zidane or Florentino Pérez are on hold for this situation, also Borja Mayoral future depend on the former Juventus striker. If Morata leaves, Mayoral has a lot of options to stay, although the most likely thing is for Mayoral to go on loan to a top flight club.
According to the Spanish newspaper Marca, even if Morata leaves the club, Mayoral could on loan to another first division team in La Liga. Zidane thinks that Benzema, Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale could cover the striker position with guarantees, especially with Isco, Asensio or Lucas Vázquez behind.
There are several clubs interested in getting Mayoral next season. Alavés and Leganés have shown already their intentions to get the loan of the striker. Real Madrid and Alavés keep very good relationships after the loan of Marcos Llorente o Enzo Zidane, whereas Leganés -a team of Madrid region- tried last season to get the loan of Mariano Díaz unsuccessfully.
Mayoral would like to stay with Los Blancos but his priority is to have minutes. Last season he went on loan to Wolfsburg, that had a very difficult season playing to avoid relegation until the end. The Spaniard only played three games from the start in the Bundesliga, scoring only two goals. For this reason, the 20-year-old forward needs minutes to continue developing himself professionally.
If Morata and Mayoral leave, Real Madrid won’t have any clear substitute for the forward position. Last season, Morata was a key player in the squad and Mariano, who was sold to Olympique Lyonnais, had also some minutes during the season. Although Real Madrid bosses don’t think about buying another striker, it might be necessary to reinforce this position. Kylian Mbappé would be the best option, but the price and the coexistence with the BBC make this signing very difficult.
