Real Madrid won the race against Barcelona for Spanish wonderkid

Real Madrid have beaten Barcelona to the signing of Spanish youngster Adrian Mancebo. The youngster who has been playing for San Sebastian De Los Reyes was wanted by arch rivals Barcelona as well.

The attacking midfielder will be turning out for Real Madrid Castilla at the start of next season and he is determined to make it to the senior squad in the future. Speaking in an exclusive interview with Marca, Mancebo said:

“My dream is to be playing at the [Estadio] Santiago Bernabeu, But I have my feet on the ground and I know I have to work hard to get there.

“Madrid has the best academy in the world but I consider myself a player with quality. Above all, I am a hard worker and a fighter on the pitch until the last minute.”

Adrian Mancebo will join Real Madrid Castilla as a free agent after this season. The attacking midfielder is currently focused on ending the season well with his current club San Sebastian. The youngster had many suitors throughout the season, but he felt that he owed San Sebastian and said that there was only one club for him this season.

Also, Mancebo has earlier trained as a youngster in the Real Madrid academy and he will be hoping to make the best out of this huge opportunity.
