“Official: Vallejo will play for Real Madrid next season,” this is the title of the Spanish daily “AS”, which announced that the young Spanish defender will replace Pepe.
Vallejo has spent the last two years on loan in Zaragoza and Eintracht Frankfurt , but next season will stay with the first team after his impressive appearances in the Bundesliga.
This is the decision of Zinedine Zidane, who h as all his work based on young people and sees it as the ideal substitute for Pepe, who has already confirmed the departure.
“AS” writes that in the first team of Real Madrid next season will also remain another player from the academy, Marcos Llorente, who last season was loaned to Alaves.
Llorente is the ideal substitute for Casemiro, in injury cases or even when Zidane decides to make rotations, something he has done a lot last season, where Real has won La Liga and the Champions League.
