Official: Vallejo joins Madrid

Real Zaragoza have announced the sale of Spain Under-19 defender Jesus Vallejo to Real Madrid for a reported €5m.

According to AS, a fee was agreed between Madrid and Zaragoza for the 18-year-old on Friday morning, €1m under his release clause, although that saving has funded a move for another Blanquillos starlet in Under-16 goalkeeper Dario Ramos.

Zaragoza, who lost out in last season’s Segunda playoffs to Las Palmas, have also confirmed that Vallejo will spend next season in Aragon, before returning to Los Blancos in 2016.

He made 31 appearances for Zaragoza in 2014-15, scoring once and even becoming captain in April, despite not kicking a single ball for their B team.
