Real Madrid on the hunt for another striker as Borja Mayoral flies in Italy

In the summer, Zinedine Zidane‘s plan was for Borja Mayoral to stay at the Santiago Bernabeu while Luka Jovic went out on loan according to Diario AS.

Fast forward to mid-season, Jovic is on his way to Eintracht Frankfurt while Mayoral is flying in Italy with Roma, averaging a goal every 124 minutes alongside a tally of four assists.

Karim Benzema has managed a rate of a goal every 151 minutes while Jovic and Mariano Diaz have averaged 208 and 275 respectively. Such data supports Zidane’s initial idea, to have Mayoral as backup to Benzema, even if it didn’t work out.

Mayoral’s future is no longer in Madrid’s hands. Roma have an option to purchase him at the end of his two-year loan deal, €15m this season or €20m at the end of his second season.

Zidane, meanwhile is scrambling to find a backup striker to Benzema after sending Jovic back to Germany. His current option, Mariano, was his fourth choice at the beginning of the season.

  1. Thank God Luca Jovic returns to home where he is needed. Zidane’s Madrid is not where you will be valued. It looks like French Club where French man is managing. Do more at Frankfurt to prove them wrong. There is your home. I love you and we love you. You will get to your destiny. Your career is more bright since you left Madrid to Frankfurt again. Go Jovic, flow goals. God will surely bless your career.
