Spanish giants Real Madrid have reportedly signed teenage Spanish prodigy Alberto De Frutos, who will play for the Infantil A side.
According to a report by Spanish outlet Defensa Central, there is a new kid on the block at Real Madrid. The teenage prodigy has joined Los Blancos from Atletico Chopera Alcobendas and will turn out for the reigning La Liga champions’ Infantil A side.
The Real Madrid youth division is one of the most well-renowned and efficient setups in the game. While very few academy graduates become pivotal figures for Los Blancos, it remains one of Europe’s most prestigious training establishments. And that is for a good reason.
La Fabrica is renowned as a premier academy in football. And it has helped Real Madrid produce numerous graduates that stamp their authority across Europe. La Fabrica has ensured that the Merengues contribute the most homegrown players to the five major leagues. And they have brought in another prodigious prospect this week.
Alberto De Frutos has joined Real Madrid from Atletico Chopera Alcobendas, one of the best academies in Spain. The teenage Spanish prodigy spent 11 years at the club, rising through the ranks before becoming a pivotal figure for the Infantil A side.
