confirmed the news on their website.

Surpassing the expectations, Mallorca sits 11th in La Liga table, especially after an incredible summer window they had recruiting Vedat Muriqi, Kang-In Lee, and Pablo Maffeo. Aduriz is expected to add some experience to the high-hoping Mallorca side this season. They will next face Bologna in a friendly match on Wednesday.

Back in the 2020-21 season, which was interrupted in mid-March due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Aduriz announced his retirement due to hip problems, just before the season could be resumed, and hence he was unable to play in the Copa del Rey final against Real Sociedad.
