Speaking in an interview with ESPN, Atletico Madrid star Alvaro Morata has named Real Madrid ace Joselu as one of his three current favourite strikers in the game.

Joselu arrived at Real Madrid only last summer, joining on a season-long loan deal from RCD Espanyol, with a purchase option included in the operation.

The 33-year-old Spaniard has done quite well in his second stint as a Madridista, racking up six goals and a couple of assists from 19 appearances across all competitions.

Even though he is not a permanent fixture in the starting XI for Carlo Ancelotti, Joselu brings a lot of value to the team.

And, Morata, who happens to share the Spanish national team dressing room with Joselu, has named him as one of his three favourite strikers in the game currently.

“I will say Joselu, he’s also my teammate in the Spanish squad, Harry Kane, and [Robert] Lewandowski,” Morata said.

Joselu, as mentioned earlier, has added value to the team be it as a starter or coming off the bench. As such, there has already been talk about making his switch permanent at the end of the season.

But, Real Madrid are yet to make a concrete decision on whether they will be retaining Joselu’s services beyond the current season or not.

Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos has said that during a recent training session, he bumped into Raul, a former striker and current Castilla manager, who confessed to him that he did not like his decision to retire from the game.

The midfielder added that he would now be interested in playing the Legends match where the likes of Zinedine Zidane, Roberto Carlos and Raul participate. 

The veteran admitted that playing alongside these legends one day would be quite exciting.

“When I left the training yesterday, Raul was outside. He told me that he did not like the decision at first but found something positive because now I’m definitely playing this legends game with him,” said Kroos on his podcast

“He said I had to be there. Me and Zizou playing behind him, Figo on the right, and RC3 (Roberto Carlos) at the back. That could be funny,” he added.

During the early hours of Tuesday, May 21, Kroos announced that he would retire from professional football after the upcoming European Championship in his home country.

As a result, Real Madrid now have to work on an alternate strategy to plan life beyond Kroos. As suggested before, the Los Blancos are of the idea that at present, there is no one in the market who can fill the void.

On the other hand, though, Dani Ceballos’ chances of staying have now increased. At the same time, there are reports that Joshua Kimmich is being monitored, but nothing seems concrete yet.

For now, Real Madrid are largely expected to rely on the current roster as the likes of Aurelien Tchouameni, Eduardo Camavinga, Federico Valverde and even Jude Bellingham are more than capable of occupying Kroos’ position.

If even that does not work out, the team from the Spanish capital can look into the youth system to rope in a capable alternative.
