Rubén de la Red became one of the hottest names in Spanish football and his dream came true. The Getafe midfielder will see Real Madrid buy him back and will go to the Merengue as of June 1st. Madrid sold him to Getafe last August with an option to rebuy clause. Madrid will pay €4.5 million. De La Red’s carpet ride continued this season as he was called up to international duty for the first time in his career.
For Madrid his is a viable option for Fernando Gago who ¨underperformed¨ so far ever since he arrived from La Boca in 2007 as well as Diarra’s inconsistency.
