- The white club ties the right back (16 years old) who was wanted by Bayern Munich and Chelsea. Next year will be Raúl’s ‘two’.
Real Madrid today closed one of the most ambitious operations in recent years at La Fábrica Blanca. The long-term continuity of Álex Jiménez, a 16-year-old right-back from Juvenil A, has been guaranteed, and he has renewed and shielded him until 2027 . A signature with which the Spanish Under-17 international agrees to continue in Valdebebas and the Madrid entity eliminates with a stroke of the pen the strong interest of Bayern and Chelsea for the youth squad .
Madrid had been negotiating for some time how to improve the situation of the winger, a precocious footballer who this season is playing two categories above his age, and has done so with a link between the years insured and the clauses to extend it by Madrid extends until 2027. A motorway designed towards the first team, although next season he will be at ease with Raúl at Castilla . An agreement that also closes the door in the face of other clubs, in addition to the German giant and the still European champion, with a lot of weight, such as Manchester United , which had joined the bid and which two summers ago took another side of Valdebebas .
The operation, in addition to the economic aspect, where Álex Jiménez will be among the best-paid youth players in Castilla, is a sporting accolade for the boy. Despite the fact that Madrid has just incorporated a two for the subsidiary, the Brazilian Vinicius Tobias , that signing was through a transfer until 2023. The future of the white side once they give way to Carvajal and Lucas Vázquez belongs to Álex Jiménez and so Real Madrid thinks.
