This is how Jesús Vallejo plays

06 Jul 2017

Jesús Vallejo (Zaragoza, 05-01-1997) will take his place in the Real Madrid first-team squad for the 2017/18 campaign. The defending Champions League and LaLiga holders have strengthened their ranks by drafting in one of the most promising defenders in Spanish football. A quick, no-nonsense centre-back, Vallejo also stands out on account of his character and personality, two qualities which saw him captain Real Zaragoza at the tender age of 18.

Originally signed by Real Madrid on 31 July 2015, Vallejo stayed on at the Aragonese club for the 2015/16 season. He then spent the 2016/17 campaign out on loan at Eintracht Frankfurt, where he racked up 25 Bundesliga appearances and played his part as the team reached the German Cup final.

Vallejo has been capped by the Spanish youth teams and lifted the Under-19s European Championship in 2015. In June of this year he was a part of the Spain squad who finished runners-up in the Under-21s European Championship in Poland, where he featured in four of the team’s five games.
