The greats of Spanish football had been following him for a long time and now he will be able to continue polishing himself at La Fábrica Blanca, where he will be on horseback between Castilla and the first youth team. The first-team goal is assured by Thibaut Courtois, but this addition shows a clear intention to have the Belgian’s replacement at home, instead of having to go out desperately looking for him when the time comes.
