Chilean striker Sebastian Pinto's father has confirmed the youngster is on his way to Real Madrid.

Pinto has been released from his contract at Universidad de Chile and will initially join Real's Castilla team in the Segunda B Liga.

"However, he will train with the first team," said Dad, Carlos. "Real Madrid didn't make one offer, but two. And you cannot turn down such a club.

"Real play in many competitions and while Sebastian will start with the Castilla, there will be opportunities."
