Pablo Sarabia
Position: winger
Fee: undisclosed
Contract: Jun 2016



Getafe have confirmed the transfer of winger Pablo Sarabia from Real Madrid, with the 19-year-old signing a contract until the summer of 2016, according to a note on their official website.

Details of the fee has not been mentioned by either of the two clubs, but a report last week suggested that Getafe were willing to pay €3 million for the Spain under-19 star. Real Madrid meanwhile revealed that they have inserted a buy-back clause in the deal.

Getafe were looking to add some more creativity to their squad ahead of the 2011-12 campaign and head coach Luis Garcia has now been given the reinforcement he requested.

Sarabia was considered to be one of the most promising youngsters to have come through the ranks of the Real Madrid youth academy in recent years, but he failed to secure regular first-team action at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The starlet follows in the footsteps of players such as Ruben de la Red, Esteban Granero and Dani Parejo, who all moved from Real to Getafe in recent years.
