Enzo Zidane will sign Rayo Majadahonda on a single season long loan from Real Madrid, according to Goal.

The son of the former Real Madrid coach will play his trade at the home of rivals Atletico next season in the Spanish second division.

The 23-year-old midfielder will be leaving the Santiago Bernabeu this summer to sign for Rayo as hopes get his career on the right track.

Enzo joined the youth structure at Real in 2004 as a nine-year-old, he featured regularly for the Real Madrid C and B sides.

He’s yet to make appearance in the La Liga for the first team but has featured for the senior side in the Copa Del Rey.

“After several weeks of talks and despite having numerous offers from other teams in Spain, Enzo has joined with Rayo Majadahonda for our club’s first season in professional football.” A statement on Majadahonda’s website read.

“It is an indication of the direction we’re heading in as a sporting club in the world of football.”

“We’ve made great efforts to bring the player here on a season-long loan but the intervention of first-team coach Antonio Iriondo has been decisive in convincing the player of the importance he’ll have with us.”

Majadahonda have risen to the ranks of the Segunda A division for the first time in their history. The club based just outside of Madrid will play their football at the Wanda Metropolitano stadium after they reached an agreement with Atletico Madrid.
