It has long been known Madrid's intention to recover Parejo. It is explained because the former Castilla player is the natural choice for Xabi Alonso. Mourinho aims that he provides good play.
The arrival of a midfielder that can replace Xabi Alonso with guarantees is the first requirement of the Portuguese from June. Parejo satisfies Mourinho so the problem has been solved in record time.
Real Madrid will have to exercise the repurchase option included in the transfer of the youth squad. Club must pay five million euros to Getafe, two more than Angel Torres paid in the summer of 2009. A manageable amount. The agreement said that the player could return the first two years, so this summer was the last chance because that clause expires.
Dani Parejo has been instrumental in the two seasons he has been in Getafe. In his first year he played 36 matches and scored 11 goals. Of the 38 league matches he participated in 28. This year also holds good numbers. Of the 22 matches that are being disputed, has played 20 matches and has scored 3 goals, one of them against Real Madrid last January 3. In the Cup, he has played 3 games. Getafe played 4 and was eliminated in 5th round (Betis). In Europe League he played 5 matches and scored 1 goal. They are eliminated from the competition.
