Real Madrid are preparing to loan out forward Borja Mayoral to a La Liga side this campaign with Leganes and Alaves favourites, say reports in Spain.
According to Marca, the 20-year-old – who spent last season on loan at Bundesliga club Wolfsburg – is set to be farmed out again by Los Blancos.
“It’s a bit like a year ago with Mariano (Diaz), Borja Mayoral is a player that will probably have a lot of suitors,” Leganes sporting director Txema Indias told AS last week.
“Real Madrid have not yet indicated that he will be allowed to depart the club this summer. We will see if he leaves Madrid, but if he does we believe we are favourites.
“This is a case that could go on for a while but we are hopeful a deal will be struck.”
