DONE DEAL: Real Madrid clinch signing of Real Mallorca teen Rafael Obrador

Real Madrid have clinched the signing of Real Mallorca teen Rafael Obrador.

The left-back is one of the most talented young players in Spanish football and is expected to go far in the game, says Marca.

The teenager has been on Real Madrid's radar for many years, but the club only came in for the player after competition arose for his signature in recent weeks.

Barcelona were one of those clubs that showed an interest in signing Obrador, but the player had his heart set on a move to Los Blancos.

Real Madrid have a history of signing players from the Balearic Islands, with Pablo Ramon and Xavi Sintes currently in the academy and Marco Asensio in the first team.
