Real Madrid are delighted with the progress of their young Belgian Alex Craninx.

The Belgium U19 goalkeeper stands at 1.95m and has been compared with Chelsea youngster Thibaut Courtois, currently on-loan with Atletico Madrid.

"I've been compared to him by the height and nationality. I also say that we both seem good shot-stoppers but I still have so much to do to be near his level. What I like about him is that despite his young age, he transmits a lot of maturity and clarity," said Alex.
