Real Madrid defender Jesus Vallejo is unsure of his future at the club after returning from a loan spell in German football.
The 20-year-old has returned to the Santiago Bernabeu after a season’s loan with Eintracht Frankfurt but has spoken of his uncertainty upon his return.
“The truth is I do not know anything about my future yet,” Vallejo is quoted as telling AS.
“I prefer to focus on the day to day, and keep improving – they told me that when they took the decision, they would talk with me.
“It is not up to me to keep insisting. Now I am focused just on the national team, because to play at the (Under 21) European Championships is a unique opportunity.
It was widely expected that Vallejo would come into Zinedine Zidane’s side and replace Portuguese defender Pepe, who looks set on a move to French side Paris Saint Germain.
“If I signed for Madrid, it is to play there someday, but I am not in a rush or anxious, the important thing is to play well and wait for the chance.
“If I can return this summer then great. It is not something which depends on me.”
Vallejo, who moved to Madrid in 2015 from Real Zaragoza, has not featured for the club but enjoyed 25 league games with Frankfurt last season.
