Soldado confirmed the agreement yesterday, declaring: "My family has been able to enjoy seeing me play for Real Madrid, which was what I had dreamed about since childhood.
"Now I start another new challenge in Getafe where I hope to learn a lot from the people that are there. I go there with humility and above all, with the intention of doing a good job and being the best I can possibly be."
He added: "I thank (Getafe president) Angel Torres for the effort he has made and the confidence he has placed in me. I plan to repay that confidence with goals."
