The Spaniard has been playing a remarkable first season in the Italian capital. Roma have the possibility to finalize his acquisition. Mayoral is happy in Rome.
The 24-year-old from Parla (Spain) is rapidly becoming a top performer at Roma. When the Giallorossi have finalized a two-year deal last summer, the talented striker knew that this would have been a great move to fully develop his career.
Borja Mayoral has been doing great close to the Colosseum. Although the Giallorossi have been passing through many highs and lows this season, the former Real Madrid man scored 17 goals and 7 assists in 2,258 minutes.
Two more goals scored yesterday at the Stadio Olimpico against Crotone. Mayoral made 29 Serie A appearances (17 as a starter) and scored 10 goals and 4 assists in 1,490 minutes.
His moves are those typical of a striker who knows how to put opponents in danger. He is capable of playing with his teammates dropping towards the midfield. But Mayoral also knows how to face the goal and run away from the marking of the expert defenders of the Italian league.
He has been playing an important role at Roma and rumors say that Josè Mourinho would like to have him on his team. The management of the Giallorossi have the option to purchase the striker at the end of the current season or in summer 2022 for a higher fee.
Will Roma permanently sign Borja Mayoral?
In my opinion that would be a smart move. The Spaniard is still a young player with great talent and the possibility to further improve his skills. If we take into consideration that Mayoral played about 52 minutes per game, his Serie A scoring frequency (151 min) is really remarkable.
Financially, his purchase would make perfect sense because his value could rapidly rise in the next season under Mourinho’s management. Borja Mayoral is a Spain U21 player (31 caps/16 goals) but he may become a good option for Luis Enrique‘s squad as well.
The former Real Madrid striker has been shining in the Eternal City and Roma should take into consideration to trigger that purchase option needed to make him an important piece of the present and future of this club.
