Official: Real Madrid sign Lucas Vazquez

  • The 24-year-old winger returns to the
    Santiago Bernabeu side, having signed a
    five-year deal after impressing at Espanyol
    last season.

    Real Madrid have announced
    on their official website that
    they have completed the re-
    signing of Lucas Vazquez
    from Espanyol.
    Vazquez came through the
    Madrid youth system, but
    failed to break into the first team under Carlo
    Ancelotti, before moving on to Espanyol last season.

    The Catalans were hoping to activate their option to
    purchase the 24-year-old’s contract outright from
    Madrid, although Madrid held an option to buy him
    back either this summer or next year.
    Espanyol president Joan Collet stated earlier this
    week that the two sides had agreed a fee, believed to
    be around €1 million, that would see the Spaniard
    return to the capital, but the Catalan side are
    reportedly holding on to 25 per cent of his rights.
    Madrid have now confirmed that the player has
    returned to the club and signed a five-
    year deal, becoming new head coach Rafael Benitez’s
    first piece of business.
    “Real Madrid have recovered the rights of Lucas
    Vazquez within the existing agreement with
    Espanyol,” a statement reads.
    “The player is tied to the club for the next five
    During his solitary season at Espanyol,
    Vazquez scored three and set up a further six goals in
    33 La Liga appearances.
