Real Madrid Unveil New Player
La Liga giants, Real Madrid unveiled a new defender at the Santiago Bernabeu and have handed the player Pepe's old squad number.
Los Blancos unveiled Spanish defender, Jesus Vallejo to the media on Friday afternoon.
The 20-year-old joined Real in 2015 but spent the last two seasons out on loan at Real Zaragoza and Eintracht Frankfurt respectively.
"Thank you very much to the president and the club, who have shown great confidence in me when they signed me two years ago," Vallejo was quoted as saying by FourFourTwo.
"Since then I have wanted to repay that trust. I still have a long way to go.
"With humility, work, effort and sacrifice I hope to be here for many years, because this is the best club in the world.
"I am very happy to take the responsibility [of playing for Madrid]. I will give everything for this badge and this shirt. Hala Madrid."
Vallejo made 25 appearances in the Bundesliga for Frankfurt last season, while he also featured for the Spain U21 side at the U21 European Championships.
