34-Year-Old Joselu’s Dream Season Could Lead to Real Madrid Stay

Joselu Joselu

Real Madrid signed Joselu on loan to fill a gap last summer. The 34-year-old has been outstanding this season, especially in the Champions League semi-finals where he was the hero. His future will be decided soon.

Daily Stand Nigeria recalls that, Last summer, Real Madrid unexpectedly lost Karim Benzema to Saudi Arabia. They initially pursued Kylian Mbappe but later dropped the deal. Carlo Ancelotti wanted more offensive power and got Joselu on loan instead. The 34-year-old Spaniard was meant to be a temporary addition but turned out crucial.

Ancelotti changed the team’s formation before the season, favoring four central midfielders and two forwards, usually Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo. Joselu often comes off the bench but still puts up impressive stats.

Joselu emerged as a hero for Real Madrid on Wednesday, scoring twice against Bayern Munich to secure a spot in the Champions League final. This proves his worth in the team.

What’s next for him? Real Madrid can buy him for just €1.5 million, but Joselu wants to focus on the season before discussing his future. He says playing for Real Madrid is a dream come true.
