Real Madrid has a reputation for always being on the lookout for the greatest young players in Spain and abroad, with this attitude permeating the youth system all the way up to the first-team group. To that aim, Los Blancos have signed a number of talented players in recent years, including Rodrygo Goes, Reinier Jesus, and Vinicius Jr.
He is a talented young defender who typically plays as a center-back. Born in 2007, the Spanish defensive prodigy has been one of Getafe’s best young talents up to this point, serving as captain of the Madrilean club’s Infantil A side. His recent development appears to have piqued the interest of one of the game’s most powerful teams, Real Madrid.
In the youth setup, Real Madrid was recently on the verge of signing Celta Vigo’s Bryan Bugarin, defeating arch rivals Barcelona to his capture. According to Javi R Verde, the Spanish giants have finally secured the services of Mario Rivas, who has signed a contract with the club and will now join the Cadete B side.
According to Javi R Verde, a Spanish journalist, Real Madrid has signed Mario Rivas, the captain of Getafe’s Infantil A team. The Spanish defensive prodigy will join Real Madrid’s Cadete B team, which has added a fourth player this summer following Dani Martin, Jose Arevalo, and Ferran Seco.
