Mitch Langerak could be playing against Real Madrid and Barcelona this season after news he's signed with La Liga outfit Levante.
The Caltex Socceroos goalkeeper was released from international duty for the current World Cup qualifiers against Japan and Thailand in order to complete a move to newly-promoted La Liga side Levante.
Langerak has spent the last two seasons at German club VfB Stuttgart, playing a major role in helping them win promotion to the German Bundesliga last season.
But he has fallen down the pecking order in 2017/18 with Stuttgart signing Ron-Robert Zieler from Leicester.
Langerak, from Bundaberg in QLD, has signed a two-year deal with his new club.
The former Victory man joins three Spanish goalkeepers at Levante, with Raul Fernandez the current number one.
Levante have started the new top-flight Spanish season with a win and a draw and next face Real Madrid at the Bernabeu after the international break.
