Real Madrid have completed the signing of Spanish U-17 star defender, Jose Lopez Martinez, known as Chechu, from Real Malaga.
Madrid-based sports journal, MARCA reports that the U-17 international can play in both the centre of defence and as a left-back, whose power and versatility will be a key asset for his new club.
It revealed that Los Blancos have now finalised his move from Malaga.
“On Wednesday, he (Chechu) was at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu to witness Real’s Copa del Rey clash with Leganes and when all of the documentation was processed, his move was completed,” MARCA wrote.
Chechu was born in Murcia and came through the youth academy at his hometown side before leaving for Valencia and then ultimately joining Malaga.
His arrival at Real Madrid is the second in as many days for a player represented by agent Pere Guardiola, brother of Pep, following the signing of Brahim Diaz.
The deal also includes the return to Malaga for Dani Sanchez, who arrived from their academy in 2015 and goes back four years later.
