Official: Vazquez makes Madrid return

Espanyol have confirmed on their official website that Lucas Vazquez has today rejoined Real Madrid.

The winger joined the Catalan side last season from Los Blancos, but the Santiago Bernabeu side have now exercised their right to re-sign him for a fee of €1m.

As a result, the 24-year-old returns to the Spanish capital and becomes new Coach Rafa Benitez’s first summer signing. He joins on a five-year contract.

“RCD Espanyol appreciates the dedication and commitment of Lucas Vazquez during his stay at the Blue and Whites and we wish him the greatest success in his new career,” part of the statement reads.
