Dani Carvajal swapped Germany for Spain
Dani Carvajal finds himself back at Real Madrid after a year spent in Germany at Bayer Leverkusen.
A product of the Madrid cantera, Carvajal worked his way through the ranks to Real Madrid Castilla, the reserve side, but could never force his way into the first-team picture.
A year after selling him for €5 million, the Spanish giants exercised their buy-back option and brought him home for a slightly increased €6.5 million fee.
As Sky Sports report, the player hopes he can make a significant impact on the first team this time round.
Since I has little, I have worked hard to get here.
I don't want to be an example for anyone, but I want to encourage the youngsters to keep working every day, because making it to the first team is every academy player's dream.
Perhaps if I had stayed I wouldn't be sitting here now.
The fact that I am sitting here means that it was the right decision. I was missing a few skills that I needed in order to compete with world-class players and now I've come back to give everything I've got.
