According to reports, Real Madrid are set to complete a move for former striker Joselu.

Real Madrid are keen on signing Espanyol attacker Joselu Mato as the team’s backup striker for next season.

According to a report published on AS, Joselu has a clause on his contract which would allow him to leave the club if Espanyol couldn’t avoid relegation, and all Real Madrid need to do is match his current salary in order to complete that loan deal.

Joselu was a Real Madrid player between 2009 and 2012. However, he couldn’t break into the first team at the time.

The 33-year-old has been a top act this season, scoring 16 La Liga goals.
