After Nacho…the Real Madrid star refuses to renew and moves to an Arab club!

Marca newspaper confirmed that Joselu has made his final decision not to renew his contract with Real Madrid and to leave the Royal Club this summer.

The Royal Club was able to buy Joselu for only 1.2 million euros during the past few days, but the rise of Espanyol makes the Catalan club entitled to demand a larger sum.

Real Madrid actually offered Joselu to continue for another year about a month ago, but the player, after careful thought, decided that the best option for his career was to leave the Santiago Bernabéu.

Coach Carlo Ancelotti’s desire was for Joselu to continue because of what he offers on the field and in the middle of the group and because he is one of the vital elements, but the player saw that he would not play a role next season from a practical standpoint.

The Brazilian Indrik, who is an outspoken striker, will move to Real Madrid, and Kylian Mbappe can be relied upon in this position as well, which made Joselu realize that he will have almost no opportunities to participate.

Therefore, the 34-year-old preferred to leave, and according to journalist Fabrizio Romano, he will move to the Qatari club Al-Gharafa.

Joselu actually received a Saudi offer, but the identity of the club was not revealed, but in the end he reached an agreement with Al-Gharafa, as a result of which he will receive a huge salary that exceeds what he would have received at Real Madrid if he renewed his contract.

Joselu will be the second player to leave Real Madrid to move to the Arab region, after Nacho, who refused to renew and decided to move to Al-Qadisiyah of Saudi Arabia in his first experience outside the Royal Club throughout his career.

It is noteworthy that Joselu played 49 matches in all tournaments last season, during which he scored 17 goals and made 3 goals, which ensured him to be part of the Spain national team currently participating in Euro 2024.
