5 Things Real Madrid Fans Need to Know About Returning Defensive Starlet Jesus Vallejo

When Real Madrid beat a host of clubs to the capture of promising centre-half Jesus Vallejo for a bargain €6m in 2015, the promising 18-year-old was proclaimed as the heir to Sergio Ramos.

Now fast forward two years (and two loan spells) and the Spain Under-21 international has been finally been officially unveiled as a Real Madrid player, and is expected to challenge the likes of  Raphaël Varane and Nacho for a first team place.

Here are five things to know about Los Blancos rising star. 

1. Young Captain at Real Zaragoza


Real Madrid saw something special in the defender, when he featured for a solitary season at Real Zaragoza before his big move to the Santiago Bernabéu.

Despite it being his first year in the professional game, in the 2014/15 season Jesus Vallejo was handed the captain’s armband at the tender age of 18 as his side came close to making the playoffs in the Segunda Division.

Showing maturity beyond his years, manager Ranko Popovic saw enough potential in the promising centre-back to make him the leader of the team.  

2. Diehard Madridista


Real Madrid are not just signing a Spanish international at all youth levels but also a fellow Madridista. The 20-year-old loves the club and appeared to be very emotional upon his long awaited return to the capital.

Following a two-year loan spell where he featured for Real Zaragoza and in Germany for Eintracht Frankfurt, he may now finally get to compete for a place in the first team at the club he adores.

3. Impressed at Frankfurt

Early signs in his career show that Los Blancos have another prestigious talent on their hands, and if managed well, could be one of the defensive greats in the future. While at Frankfurt, the imposing defender stood out before an injury stunted his development.

The Bundesliga side had the third best defensive record in the league until his spell on the sidelines curtailed his development and caused problems for Die Adler. Manager Niko Kovac and many of his teammates waxed lyrical about the young Spaniard during his time there.

4. International Credentials


Having featured at youth level for the national side in the Under-17s and Under-18s with Spain, Vallejo has now also made considerable strides after helping La Roja to a European Championship at Under-19 level.

The tall defensive stopper also came close to further international honours at the Under-21 Championships this summer, narrowly losing in the final against Germany.

5. Big Boots to Fill


With Pepe out the door, Vallejo has been recalled for now to replace the Portuguese defender who has moved on to Turkish side Besiktas.

Los Blancos manager Zinedine Zidane has shown faith in the Spanish centre-back and now the 20-year-old will need to show that his early promised was justified after a two-year loan.
