Real Madrid have allowed Daniel Carvajal to leave the club after the Galacticos accepted Bayer Leverkusen’s bid for the young full-back.
Carvajal is primarily a right-back and featured regularly for Real Madrid’s B team Castilla. The 20-year-old was highly regarded by Los Blancos’ management, but with Sergio Ramos and Alvaro Arbeloa ahead of him, the club have allowed the defender to find his footing in the German league.
Leverkusen manager Sami Hyypia was interested in the full-back and the German outfit met with Real Madrid operatives in order to finalise a deal. Carvajal joins Werkself on a five-year contract which should keep the Spanish Under-19 international at the club until 2017.
Negotiations have been taking place between the two sides for the past week and the player will fly to Germany tomorrow in order to complete his medical and to officially sign for the Bundesliga club.
Carvajal, who was part of the Spanish national team which won the European Under-19 Championship in 2011, announced his move to Bayer Leverkusen through Twitter.
“Today, I have taken an important step in my career. I will play for Bayer 04 Leverkusen for the next five seasons”, said the Spaniard.
“I hope to improve as a player and will try to get back in the future [to Real Madrid] when I am ready to play in the first team.”
Carvajal made 44 appearances for Real Madrid’s B team during his time at the club.
