Borja Mayoral linked with Real Sociedad switch

Real Sociedad could make a summer move for Real Madrid striker Borja Mayoral according to a report in Marca this morning.

Mayoral, who has impressed during a season long loan at Levante in the 2018-19 campaign, has been heavily linked with an exit from the Santiago Bernabeu this summer, with Zinedine Zidane set for a squad overhaul over the summer.

According to the report, Mayoral is open to a move to the Anoeta, and the Basque side are hopeful of completing the deal before the 22-year old leave on international duty with the Spanish U21 side next month.

Real Madrid are likely to push for a buy back clause to be included in any potential deal between the two sides, with Mayoral still tipped to have a big future in La Liga.

However, Zidane is set to retain the services of Raul de Tomas, who has scored 14 league goals on loan at Rayo Vallecano, with the Frenchman hopeful of utilising him as a cut price attacking option next season.
