Real Madrid striker Borja Mayoral has joined Levante on a loan deal which will expire in June 2019, Los Blancos announced today.

Real Madrid and Levante reached an agreement over a loan deal of striker Borja Mayoral expiring in June 30th 2018.

Mayoral was hoping to be Madrid’s first striker off the bench this season but Los Blancos decided to sign Mariano for that role instead. That left Mayoral with no choice but leaving the club in search of relevant minutes to prove himself as a useful player for Real Madrid.

The Spanish attacker needs minutes to develop and make good progress as a player, something he did not get the last two years. He should be good enough to start for Levante even though this is a club which might struggle this season, meaning that Mayoral might not have too many opportunities to score and contribute for his new team.
