Armabarri has established himself as a key player in Jose Bordalas’ side following his 2017 move from French club Bordeaux, with 114 appearances for the side from South Madrid.

The Uruguayan international was on the radar of Inter Milan ahead of the 2020/21 campaign, with Getafe reportedly rejecting a €15m offer from Antonio Conte’s side.
