Getafe snap up Real starlet Sarabia

Getafe have confirmed the signing of highly-rated Real Madrid winger Pablo Sarabia on a five-year deal, though Los Blancos will retain a buy-back option for the teenager.

Sarabia, 19, made his debut for Real last December and impressed in a 20-minute cameo against Auxerre in the Champions League after coming on as a substiute for Cristiano Ronaldo.

But the strength and depth of Real's squad meant the midfielder, who has represented Spain at Under-16, Under-17, Under-18 and Under-19 level was unable to add to that single appearance in 2010-11.

Neither club has confirmed the fee but reports in Spain last week suggested Getafe were willing to pay €3 million for Sarabia, who follows a well-trodden path from the Bernabeu to Coliseum Alfonso Perez, with Ruben de la Red, Esteban Granero and Dani Parejo all having made the move in recent years.

A graduate of the Real youth academy, Sarabia will be expecting significantly more first-team opportuinities under Luis Garcia at Getafe, who narrowly avoided relegtaion from La Liga Last season.
