In a surprising turn of events, renowned Italian transfer market expert Gianluca Di Marzio has revealed that Cagliari is seriously considering the acquisition of Borja Mayoral, the Spanish striker currently playing for Getafe. Having joined the blue club on a permanent basis last year for a significant sum of €10 million, it is clear that the Italian club is aware of the challenges and costs involved in securing his services.
This news has sent shockwaves through LaLiga, particularly at Getafe, as Gianluca Di Marzio reports that Cagliari has set its sights on Borja Mayoral as a potential luxury reinforcement to bolster their goal-scoring capabilities. Mayoral, whose contract extends until 2027, will undoubtedly command a substantial transfer fee.
Di Marzio asserts that Cagliari understands the potential difficulties in bringing Borja Mayoral to Serie A, given that the player is under contract until 2027 and was acquired by Getafe last summer for a fee close to €10 million. Furthermore, with the unexpected injury to Enes Ünal, Getafe finds itself lacking options in the forward line, making the possibility of Mayoral’s departure only feasible if an offer too good to refuse materializes.
At this stage, it is important to note that the reported interest from Cagliari remains speculative, with no official negotiations or approaches having been made to the player. However, Di Marzio emphasizes that Cagliari’s interest in the Madrid-born striker is indeed serious, suggesting that a formal offer may materialize in the coming days.
The potential move to Cagliari could be a significant turning point in Borja Mayoral’s career, as he seeks to make his mark in Serie A. Known for his technical prowess and goal-scoring abilities, Mayoral could prove to be a valuable asset for Cagliari, providing them with the much-needed attacking impetus to compete at the highest level.
