Borja Mayoral is finally enjoying life at Levante with the player now having established himself as a starter in the side and will be integral part of Els Granotes battle against relegation. After a slow start to his time with the Valencia based outfit, things have improved for the striker so much that both sides are optimistic that the loan deal from Real Madrid can be extended through to conclusion of the 2019-20 campaign.

Difficult adaptation

The start to life at Levante was far from easy for 22-year-old, with the striker's only playing time under Paco López coming from the bench. Progressively the forward started to convince the Levante boss with the player featuring more regularly in Lopez's starting line-up for the side with Mayoral bagging three LaLiga goals in his 1,168 minutes of playing time in the claret and navy shirt.
