He’s no Karim Benzema, he’s no Gareth Bale and he certainly is no Ronaldo… yet at least.
As the Man United-David de Gea war of words continues to roll on, an interesting target from Real Madrid – De Gea’s prime destination – has emerged that could sway the Red Devils towards a trade.
According to ESPN FC, Man United are considering taking Real Madrid Under-19 striker Borja Mayoral as part of a swap for the disgruntled Spanish goalkeeper.
The reigning PFA Goalkeeper of the Year has made no bones about his desire to leave Old Trafford and his removal from the starting XI and the bench for the last three matches has reportedly only further angered him.
If Man United are targeting the 18-year-old Real Madrid striker for a swap they may be in for a treat. Borja Mayoral might be the best young striker in the Real Madrid lower categories, owning 8 goals in seven appearances for the Real Madrid U-19 in the Youth League and another 7 goals in eight appearances for Spain’s U-19 team.
Mayoral scored 3 goals just last month in the UEFA European Under-19 Championship, including a score in Spain’s 2-0 Final win over Russia.
