Real Madrid have confirmed the departure of their player Borja Mayoral who has joined Italian giants Roma on loan for the next two years.

Borja Mayoral found it difficult to break into Real Madrid first team under Frenchman Zinedine Zidane which masterminded his exit at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Karim Benzema, Luka Jovic and Mariano Diaz will be Real Madrid’s strikers this 2020-2021 season in the Spanish La Liga and also the Champions League.

However, Borja Mayoral will have to raise his game well in training for him to have the chance of breaking into Roma's first team as Edin Dzeko is their top striker.
