Bayer Leverkusen have signed
20-year-old defender Daniel Carvajal from Real Madrid on a
five-year deal, the Bundesliga club said on Wednesday.
Carvajal, who won the Under-19 European Championship with Spain
last year, had failed to establish himself at the Spanish
champions after emerging from the club's youth ranks, which he
first joined a decade ago.
No details of a transfer fee were revealed.
"We have managed to strengthen ourselves in the position of
right back with this transfer," said Leverkusen boss Wolfgang
Holzhaeuser. "Daniel Carvajal is already an outstanding player
but still has immense potential due to his young age."
Leverkusen finished in fifth place last season and will
compete in the Europa League in the coming campaign.
