Roma will exercise option to buy on striker Borja Mayoral


One of the few bright spots for Roma this season has been Spanish striker Borja Mayoral, who joined the club last summer from Real Madrid.

The 24 year-old move to the Italian capital in October on a two-year loan deal with an option to buy after each season for €15 million and €20 million, respectively.

After initially struggling to get on the scoresheet, Mayoral transformed into one of the team’s most dynamic attackers, tallying 17 goals and 7 assists in 43 appearances in all competitions – his best season as a professional.

The impending arrival of newly appointed manager José Mourinho seemed to cast doubt over Roma’s intentions of keeping Mayoral at the club permanently. However, a report today from Spanish outlet AS claims that the Giallorossi plan on keeping the striker at the club and will exercise the option to buy.
