Real Madrid tell forward to listen to offers this summer

Real Madrid may not have imagined that the only natural replacement for Karim Benzema would be 33-year-old Joselu Mato, let alone that the on-loan Espanyol striker would score a brace to put them into the Champions League final. . But the veteran striker wrote himself in Real Madrid's history. It looks like he will stay at the club, but Los Blancos are encouraging him to listen to offers.

According to Relevo, Real Madrid are happy with his contributions, and will exercise his €1.5 million purchase option. Not least because even if he wanted to leave, they would likely make a profit from him, and the euro could see its value rise further. They are happy to keep him, but with the looming arrival of Kylian Mbappe and Endrik Felipe, Los Blancos have asked him to consider other opportunities where he might have more playing time.

For his part, Joselu has no problem with the competition. He is happy to play his role as an influential substitute, seizes his opportunities wherever they come, and is aware that Real Madrid will play in six tournaments next season. Manager Carlo Ancelotti is also happy with him and is keen to see him continue. Los Blancos are also willing to offer him a multi-year contract, despite typically only signing over-30s for one season.

It seems likely that Joselu will end up staying at the Santiago Bernabéu, having initially left the club with just one appearance to his name as a youth. He did not miss an opportunity to highlight how grateful he was for this opportunity, or how much he enjoyed it. From Real Madrid's point of view, no matter how good Andric Filipe is, there is no doubt that Joselu can do things he can't, and those traits have been useful for Los Blancos this season.
