The 23-year-old Garcia came up through Madrid’s youth teams before joining crosstown club Rayo in 2020.

The left back established himself as a starter in three seasons with Rayo, playing 72 games.

Garcia will compete with Ferland Mendy for playing time on the left side of the defensive line. Last season, coach Carlo Ancelotti also played midfielder Eduardo Camavinga at the position.

Neither club disclosed the financial details of the transfer.
