Rayo Vallecano coach Andoni Iraola says Fran Garcia has a big future.
The left-back is expected to re-sign for Real Madrid at the end of the season and is on track for a first Spain U21 call.
"It depends on him, if he ever gets called for the U21s, I have no idea. It is the selector who must analyze him and decide," said Iraola after victory over Almeria.
"He has played a very complete game. When we were worse, he was our source of harm.
"Let him continue in that growth process and if he continues like this, he will do well."
