The striker conundrum is officially over for Real Madrid as the club confirmed that Borja Mayoral is joining AS Roma on a two-year loan deal.
Real Madrid C. F. and AS Roma have agreed to the loan deal of Borja Mayoral for the next two seasons, until 30 June 2022.
Madrid did not reveal whether Mayoral actually got a contract extension with the club or not, but knowing that his deal was set to expire in the summer of 2021, it’s safe to assume that he did.
Mayoral will get more minutes for Roma than the role he was expected to have at Madrid, although it will not be easy for him to make the starting lineup consistently ahead of Edin Dzeko, who appears to be the established striker for the Italian side.
Therefore, Karim Benzema, Luka Jovic and Mariano Diaz will be Real Madrid’s strikers this 2020-2021 season.
