Adam Arvelo joins Real Madrid from Villarreal

15 Sep 2020

Real Madrid have continued their policy of snapping up top young Spanish talent by signing left-footed winger Adam Arvelo, 15, from Villarreal. The Canary Islander joins Los Blancos’ youth set-up despite also being targeted by Madrid’s arch rivals, Barcelona, and major clubs in the Premier League.

Arvelo joins Real Madrid Under-16s

Arvelo has spent three seasons in the Villarreal academy, having moved to the Submarino Amarillo after impressing at Tenerife and excelling for a Canary Islands team in a nationwide Spanish youth tournament. Under contract with US sportswear giant Nike until 2022, he is to begin his career at La Fábrica in the Real Madrid Under-16s.

Winger capped by Spain Under-15

A player with pace and excellent technique, Arvelo boasts a potent shot and is a Spain Under-15 international, offering up plenty of evidence of his star potential in his appearances for Julen Guerrero’s side. He can operate on both wings, but is particularly effective when cutting inside from a starting position on the right.
