Real Madrid have officially announced the transfer of Asier Illarramendi from Real Sociedad for a fee of €32.19 million (after tax) on a six year contract. He will have his medical tomorrow (13 July) after which he will sign the contract, be presented at the Bernabeu and then move on to answer questions by the press. He will be presented as a Real Madrid player at 1 PM CET.
The Real Madrid Fan will have his presentation and press release translated to English tomorrow.
Another Spaniard and another youngster signed by Real Madrid, another smart decision. Asier is a good player and will be a good long term replacement for Xabi Alonso who is injured and may not start season in August.
