Real Madrid have reportedly completed the capture of 12-year-old Spanish prodigy Bryan Bugarin from fellow La Liga club Celta Vigo.
According to a report from Mundo Deportivo, Real Madrid have completed the signing of Spanish wonderkid Bryan Bugarin from Celta Vigo, with the young forward set to arrive at La Fabrica imminently.
Bugarin has been with Celta Vigo since a young age. The forward caught the eyes of the onlookers with some very impressive performances at the La Liga Promises tournament. He finished the competition as the MVP, having scored nine goals, impressing with his finishing ability and composure in the final third of the pitch.
Bugarin’s promise and potential alerted several top clubs across Spain, with both Barcelona and Real Madrid registering an interest in the 12-year-old attacker. However, it seems like it is Los Blancos that have now come out on top in the race to capture the young forward from Celta Vigo.
Real Madrid have shown great desire to bolster their youth ranks as well as the reserve team this summer. Real Madrid’s aggression in the youth market comes from club president Florentino Perez’s desire to build stars for the future from within.
Indeed, the Spanish capital club has recruited several promising individuals across age groups in recent weeks, with the likes of Manu Romero, Mario Rivas, Jaume Jardi among some of the young players to make their way to La Fabrica in the recent past.
And Bugarin has now become the latest such addition to the ranks, as per the aforementioned report. The 12-year-old starlet is said to have bid his goodbyes to Celta Vigo as he gears up for a new journey with one of the biggest clubs in the world.
While it is yet another promising feat for the Spanish capital club, Real Madrid have been pretty dormant in their recruitment with the first-team level. Apart from the free transfer signing of David Alaba, there have not been any new incomings, with new manager Carlo Ancelotti seemingly still assessing the players at his disposal.
There has been a high-profile exit as well, with Sergio Ramos leaving after his contract expired. Transfer activity is expected to ramp up at the first-team level in the coming weeks.
