DONE DEAL: Real Madrid snap up Getafe midfielder Ayoub Abou

Real Madrid have snapped up Getafe midfielder Ayoub Abou.

The Moroccan midfielder joined only last month from Rayo Majadahonda.

The 20-year-old will join Castilla initially after a breakthrough season with the Segunda B side last term, where he played 31 times as the outfit from the Madrid suburbs earned promotion to Segunda División for the first time in the club's history.

Majadahonda had expressed an interest in retaining Ayoub's services and Albacete were also interested before he agreed a deal to join Getafe. The Azulones had planned to loan Ayoub to a Segunda side for the 2018-19 campaign but reached an agreement with Madrid on a free transfer to Castilla with the player rescinding his contract with the club.
