Real Madrid striker Borja Mayoral is reportedly set to have his option triggered by Roma this summer, according to Gazzetta dello Sport.
Mayoral is signed to a two-year loan deal with a €15 million option to buy. The option reportedly jumps to a €20 million option if the deal isn’t completed this summer transfer window.
The 23-year-old is in his first season with the Serie A club. He leads the team with 13 goals. He has six goals in 22 Serie A appearances and seven goals in seven starts in the Europa League this season.
Mayoral is signed with Real Madrid until 2023, unless the option is triggered by Roma this offseason. He spent the last two seasons with Levante where he scored 11 goals in 63 appearances.
It makes sense that Roma could be looking to permanently lock down Mayoral on contract given how well he has played for them this season. Even more so that Real still has Luka Jovic out on loan with Frankfurt, which ends this summer.
