Getafe have officially announced the signing of Real Madrid youngster Alvaro Medran on loan from Real Madrid. The Spanish midfielder will play next season at the Southern-Madrid side in order to get minutes of play and gain experience.
Many La Liga clubs were interested in signing the 21-year-old, who spent last season switching between the reserves team and the first team. He made it in the first squad in many occasions, although in most of them he spent the whole game sitting on the bench.
Last season he played five games for a total of 132 minutes under Carlo Ancelotti’s management and even scored his first goal for Los Blancos first team in a Champions League match against Ludogorets.
Los Merengues directors new it was time for Medran to take a step forward in his career and decided he had to leave on loan. They have finally chosen Getafe, where many other Real Madrid youngsters have also been sent to grow their game, such as Daniel Parejo, Esteban Granero and Ruben de la Red.
Medran suffered a fibula fracture early in April and has been recovering since then, but he’s expected to be fit for the start of next season in August.
