BBC Sport – The former Stoke City and Newcastle United forward also scored in Spain’s winning Nations League campaign.

His signing follows the departure of Real striker Karim Benzema who joined Saudi Arabia club Al-Ittihad.

Real are looking to fill the void left by the Ballon d’Or-winning French forward, who was their second-highest scorer of all time.

Tottenham and England captain Harry Kane has been linked with a move to Madrid as the preferred replacement for Benzema.

Joselu returns to the Spanish capital, having previously joined Real’s youth academy in 2010. He made his debut for the first team in 2011, scoring three minutes after coming off the bench against Almería.

Since leaving Real in 2012, the Spanish striker has played in both the Bundesliga and Premier League.

He scored 10 goals in the English top flight across stints with Stoke City and Newcastle United, before returning to Spain in 2019 with Alaves.

Joselu joined Espanyol before the 2022-23 season and finished the campaign behind only Robert Lewandowski and Benzema in the La Liga scoring charts, before making his international debut in March.
