Pedro Leon can’t play against Real

Pedro Leon won’t be able to play for Getafe against parent club Real Madrid, despite President Angel Torres’ earlier assertion to the contrary.

The 25-year-old, who originally joined Los Blancos in July 2010 for a fee of €10m from the Aluzones, is back at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez for a second consecutive season on loan.

Week 2 sees Real visit Leon’s current club, but the 25-year-old won’t be eligible for selection, due to a clause inserted in his loan agreement by Jose Mourinho’s side.

AS report that if Getafe do want to play the attacking winger against the side that still owns him, in either League game, then they would be forced to pay a fee of €2m.

President Torres had suggested earlier this month that: “Pedro Leon is ours and we can play him against Madrid.

“I don’t remember the details of the contract, but Pedro is our best player and unless I remember wrong, we can play him against Madrid.”
