Real Madrid are ready to buy back Dani Parejo from Getafe.

AS says Real will cough up €5 million to enact the buy-back option in Parejo's contract at the end of the season.

Parejo will return to Real as cover for Xabi Alonso.

The midfielder came through the system at Real, where he had been since he was 15 years of age.
