Joselu’s great season has not been enough for Espanyol to avoid relegation and the Spanish international will not continue with the Catalan team next season
The 16 goals scored by Joselu in it Spanish have not been enough to avoid the relegation of the Catalan team. In fact, they reached the last day with no options and with the plans of the Spanish international very clear, since we already knew for several days what his destiny would be next season. A season in which he will not play in the SmartBank League, as was to be imagined.
And it is that there were going to be no shortage of offers for a striker of his caliber. In fact, next season we will see him fulfill one of his dreams and he will play the Champions League with the team of his life. A team that had been following him for several months and that has already closed his return. But Espanyol has also taken advantage of Joselu’s departure.
Joselu already has a destination to leave Espanyol
As we know for several days, Joselu will play for Real Madrid next season. The footballer, raised in the white youth academy, has had to go a long way before earning the opportunity to return to the club. A club of which he is a fan, as was demonstrated last season when he was wearing the white shirt in the Champions League final as if he were just another fan.
now and before the already announced departures of Karim Benzema and Mariano Díaz, Joselu has reached an agreement with Real Madrid. The Spanish international will wear the white shirt next season after both clubs closed a loan deal. But he is not the only player who will be part of the operation.
Sergio Arribas will be part of the operation
Espanyol was not going to lose its best footballer just like that and the good relations they maintain with Real Madrid They have served to reach an assignment agreement for an important player. A player who has stood out in the white subsidiary this season and who seems to have closed the doors of the first team.
This player is none other than Sergio Arribas, who could reach Espanyol on loan as part of the Joselu operation. In this way, both clubs would help each other next season, thus extending the good institutional relations that they have maintained in recent years. Of course, at the moment there is no official confirmation of either of the two operations.
