Rayo’s president confirms the agreement that the left back will return to the Chamartín club on June 30
Fran García will wear the Real Madrid shirt from June 30. Martín Presa, president of Rayo Vallecano, confirmed in the ‘El Partidazo de COPE’ program that the franjirroja entity and the Chamartín club have reached an agreement on the return of the left back to the place where he was formed, so the footballer born in Bolaños de Alatrava (Ciudad Real) will be the whites’ first acquisition for next season.
Real Madrid had been considering for months the possibility of including Fran García, a youth player who joined Valdebebas at the age of 13 and who made his debut with the first team in a Copa del Rey match against Melilla in 2018, before he went to Rayo, first lent and later transferred. The club under the chairmanship of Florentino Pérez then held 50% of the rights to the winger, whose termination clause with Rayo amounted to 10 million euros.
The arrival of Bayer Leverkusen last week, who communicated to Rayo Vallecano its intention to pay the clause and immediately hire Fran García, hastened events. Real Madrid informed Rayo that they have the footballer for next week and the agreement between the two entities is already a fact. «Fran García will leave for Real Madrid at the end of this season. We have reached an agreement,” revealed Martín Presa on Cadena COPE.
Rayo’s CEO thanked Real Madrid for allowing him to keep the footballer until the end of this campaign, as he was a key figure in Andoni Iraola’s scheme and, along with Álvaro García, one of the fashionable couples of Spanish football. “We’ve had a risky situation and we have to recognize, it’s fair, the lordship with which Real Madrid behaved during the operation. They tried not to weaken a rival in this market. It would probably be best for them on a sporting level Real Madrid is a noble club and we have to thank them,” he said.
Fran García played 103 games with Rayo Vallecano, scoring three goals and providing eight assists. An international with the Spanish team’s lower categories, he joined the Real Madrid academy in 2013 and progressed through all the lower divisions until his promotion to Castilla in 2018. Although he was on the radar of several teams, it was always his dream to return to Chamartín and you will see it fulfilled from June 30. He signs for five seasons.
The intention of the club under the chairmanship of Florentino Pérez is for Fran García to remain in the squad and strengthen a demarcation in which the whites currently only have Ferland Mendy.
