Roma striker Borja Mayoral arrived at the Giallorossi on a two-year loan deal from Real Madrid, but his agent Alejandro Camano explained he was on the verge of moving to Italy already in 2019.

It’s true,”

Camano told CalcioNapoli24. “

Cristiano Giuntoli is a great sporting director and before the move to Borussia Dortmund, he did everything to bring [Inter full-back Achraf] Hakimi and Borja Mayoral to the Azzurri

.

“Anything can happen in football, but the agreement was not found even though Napoli did everything to bring them to the squad.

“In the end, Hakimi went to Borussia Dortmund. Borja Mayoral eventually arrived in Italy, at Roma.

“But in the future, why not?”

The 24-year-old has made 24 Serie A appearances this season, resulting in 7 goals and 4 assists.

Roma have an option to buy the forward after the 2021-22 season.
