Real Madrid intend to trigger the buy-back option in Dani Carvajal's contract at Bayer Leverkusen.

The young defender has been a revelation for Bayer this season in Germany and El Confidencial says Real are now prepared to bring him back to Madrid.

Carvajal's agent, Gines Carvajal, confirmed the youngster could make a return: "Not this winter, but it could happen next season."
