Roma have officially announced the acquisition of 23 year-old Spanish striker Borja Mayoral from Real Madrid.
The Giallorossi revealed that the attacker joins the club on an initial two-year loan deal, for a fee of €2 million.
As part of the agreement, Roma has the option to make the transfer permanent at any point during the 2020-21 season for a fee of €15 million. In the second season, the cost to exercise this option rises to €20 million.
Should either option be exercised, the player has already agreed a contract with the club which will run until 30 June 2025.
“I am pleased to finally join – it has been a hectic few days, but the main thing is everything has worked out for the best,” Mayoral said to Roma’s official website.
“It’s an honour for me to represent an historic club like Roma. I am grateful to the club for the faith they have shown; I will give everything for this club and I hope to make our fans proud”.
Roma CEO Guido Fienga also commented on the acquisition of the Spaniard and referenced his vast experience despite his young age.
“With this signing we are adding a talented player to the group, and one who has learned his trade at a renowned club like Real Madrid,” said Fienga.
“Despite his young age he has already picked up some valuable experience. He had the choice to stay at Real Madrid or come here – he chose Roma, and we are delighted about that”.
