Jesús Vallejo: "Return to Madrid? It would be a mistake to force it"

The 19-year old centre-back who's been impressing on loan to Eintracht Frankfurt has revealed that the only contact he's received from Real Madrid has been on a "medical level".

Real Madrid defender Jesús Vallejo, who’s currently making waves on a season-long loan at Eintracht Frankfurt, has said that while his ambition is to return to the Spanish club it would be foolish to try and “force” a move before his contract runs out in Germany.

Madrid weighing up early call-back?

Recent reports have claimed that Real Madrid could be willing to call Vallejo back from his loan spell early owing to the 19-year old’s impressive performances in the Bundesliga as well as the club’s rearguard injury worries.

However, in an interview with the newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine, Vallejo says he is only focused on the task at hand and nothing else.

"Nobody knows what’s going to happen in the future”

“I’m living here now and I’m concentrated on the present,” said Vallejo. “I signed for Real Madrid with the idea of playing there one day, but it would be a mistake to try and force it.

“Let’s see how we end up at the end of the season, and then it’ll maybe be the time to make a decision without rushing it. At the moment everything is going well, but nobody knows what’s going to happen in the future.”

The Zaragozan centre-back also stressed that the only contact he’s received from the club has been on a “medical level”.

“The doctors and physicians exchange information regularly,” added Vallejo, who’s already suffered a spate of injuries in his young career. “They both worry about my fitness. If the club want to discuss any other football-related topic they’ll get in contact with me, but that’s not been the case as of yet.”
