    Apologies if there is a thread on this guy already.. but if there isn't, what do we make of him? Is he going to break through into the Madrid side as a starter of the future?

    Great talent to be honest. Real have gold with him and I expect him to be a starter in 2 years.

    He'll probably become the player Jesé was supposed to become.

    Very good talent, speaks volumes about his ability that he's a youngster getting decent minutes at Real Madrid.

    Watched him in very few games and I was very much impressed with him. His close control and crossing was superb.

    Im a fan. Hes very decisive in the final third. Has a little bit of everything, pace, trickery, passing ability , finishing and works hard for the team as well. I think he will break through into the starting XI in 2yrs.

    The Spanish Lingard, which obviously means he's very in every way.

    Looks quality. Wonder will Madrid actually realize it early enough though before ship him out somewhere.

    Every time I've watched him the last year he's been brilliant. Should be starting every game

    He's just magnificent. Scored a good goal against Bayern too in the CL if I remember correctly. He's already special and will probably continue to improve.

    Yeah this guy is the real deal - every time I watch him he is quality. Deserves to start.

    Norwegian commentator said 4,5m euro. Was supposed to sign for Barca, but they were penny pinching and wanted to split the amount, Real swooped in and got him.

    Anywhere between £200k-£3,000,000 according to different reports. Scouted by Rafael Nadal, true story.

    Haven't seen much of him but he showed neat touches and scored one or two belters like this one when I did. What type of player is he though, is he a winger? Doesn't look that fast.

    Redundant unless he wants to move.

    Won't be long before he completely nullifies Bale, saw very little from him today.

    A playmaker/winger hybrid I'd say. Can play left, right, center. I like it most when he plays at RW (he's left-footed), cutting in.

    Him and Isco have to be in the Real side, makes a bleak picture for Bale and one of Benzema and Ronaldo (probably the former)

    €350M if reports are to be believed, We already gave him a new contract and bumped his wages to £120k a week

    Top 5 young talent in Europe right now, Zidane has done a great job intergrating him into the team.

    He's quick over the first few but I wouldn't say he's rapid.

    Top speed isn't exceptional but he's got great acceleration and progression, he can run long distances without losing pace. That makes him quite fast

    This kid is special, every time he comes on he does something. What a cracking goal against Barcelona at the Nou Camp.

    The kid is special. Barring injuries, he'll be a star.

    Madrid extremely fortunate to have him, and they won't have to worry about him wanting to leave them either.

    Yes. Bale will be the first one out. But Benzema will still hold on to his place for atleast one more season. Ronaldo can't be touched. You don't drop a 50-goal striker/winger for anybody.

    To think they also signed another promising Spanish midfielder in Ceballos too... They're recruting so intelligently now.

    As much as i hate Real and think Perezez is a cnut I do think they are running a very sensibile and sustainable club. They will spend big when needed but now they are recruiting only youngster who come relatively cheap. IMHO Real can dominate Spanish and European football for years.
