Real Madrid have re-signed left-back Fran Garcia for a figure close to $5.5m from La Liga side Rayo Vallecano.
The 23-year-old initially left the Bernabeu in 2020 without making a senior appearance for the Merengues’ first team but has been a key member of a Rayo side that finished a very impressive ninth this campaign.
Los Blancos snap up Fran Garcia for cut price deal
According to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, Los Blancos president Florentino Perez has today triggered the $5.5m buy out clause which was installed in Garcia’s contract when he left Madrid 3 years ago, allowing the Merengues to purchase the player at a price much lower than his current market value.
