Vallejo close to Madrid

Real Madrid are reportedly ready to complete the signing of Real Zaragoza’s Spain Under-19 captain Jesus Vallejo.

AS claims a €6m fee will be required to prise the defender away from his current club but Los Blancos will loan Vallejo back to Zaragoza for at least another season, and possibly two.

Vallejo has also attracted attention from Udinese, Barcelona, Valencia and Villarreal, it’s said, but Onda Cero believe Madrid have effectively completed the transfer already.

AS say it will be wrapped up this week after negotiations between Madrid President Florentino Perez and Zaragoza counterpart Cesar Alierta.
