Callejón swaps Real Madrid for Napoli

José Callejón has left Real Madrid CF for the second time in his career after agreeing a four-year deal with fellow UEFA Champions League group stage hopefuls SSC Napoli.

SSC Napoli have announced the signing of José Callejón from fellow UEFA Champions League group stage contenders Real Madrid CF for an undisclosed fee.

The 26-year-old forward has agreed a four-year contract with last season's Serie A runners-up Napoli as he departs Real Madrid for a second time. A product of the Madrid academy, he had a three-season spell at RCD Espanyol before returning to the Santiago Bernabéu in 2011. He has scored eight goals in 55 Liga games over the past two campaigns, while his tally in the UEFA Champions League is an impressive seven goals in just nine appearances.
