Former Real Madrid fullback Marcos, 19, has grown up in a home steeped in football and similar names.
His granddad, also Marcos, played in five European Cup finals with Real Madrid, captured by the black-and-white photos and the heaving collection of medals.
He was the man behind the move to Bolton after a personal scouting mission and meeting with Trotters boss Owen Coyle.
The young Wanderers wonder is grateful for that assistance and said: "It's not a pressure on me to succeed, it's an advantage. I know the experiences and the stories that my dad has told me.
"I know I will always get good advice from him. He told me this was the right move for me. But he made a similar choice himself when he was young and that worked for him."
