Real Madrid have reported on their official website that Rubén Yáñez has been transferred to Getafe.

Real Madrid C. F. and Getafe C. F. have reached an agreement for the transfer of Rubén Yáñez. The club expresses its thanks for what has been an exemplary career throughout the seven seasons the player has spent as part of Real Madrid, which has seen him come through the academy and break into the first-team squad.

Yáñez worked his way up from Girona Juvenil A to the first team over the course of several years (starting from 2010). He has long been Real Madrid’s third keeper - a job that requires immense patience and perseverance with little to no reward. After a grand total of zero minutes in the first team, it’s understandable that Rubén wants to move on. He will probably never have the quality to make it here, but he just may have what it takes to contribute something significant to a mid-table or lower table team.
