OFFICIAL: Real Madrid sign Jesús Vallejo

Real Madrid have completed the deal with Zaragoza.

It was all but confirmed, but Real Madrid have now announced the signing of Spanish young center-back Jesús Vallejo. He is 18 years old and will play with Real Zaragoza next season on loan. They could also keep the player for another year if they manage to promote to Primera División during the next campaign.

Real Madrid will pay around €6 million for Vallejo, one of the most interesting prospects in the world of football. He was a defensive cornerstone of the Spanish U19 team that conquered the Eurocup weeks ago, with other Real Madrid players like Borja Mayoral and Marco Asensio leading the team as well. In fact, Real Madrid are also interested in Dani Ceballos, yet another highlighted player of that team.

Jesús Vallejo will surely be looking forward to show his potential during next season to prove that he's ready to play for Real Madrid on the 2016-2017 season.
