Florentino Perez confirms Real Madrid move for Joselu – Football España
Real Madrid club president Florentino Perez has confirmed the club will sign Joselu this month.
Los Blancos are continuing to monitor Kylian Mbappe’s situation at Paris Saint-Germain, but a summer move is unlikely, despite his unwillingness to stay in Paris.
With Mbappe expected to remain in France, Carlo Ancelotti will have to bring in immediate cover for the departing Karim Benzema, with Espanyol’s Joselu a possible loan option.
The vacancy needs to be filled and Joselu is a cost effective target to fill in before Mbappe’s potential arrival.
Perez was asked by fans what the plan over the 33-year-old forward is, ahead of Spain’s UEFA Nations League final, and he confirmed the deal will be wrapped up imminently.
