Real Madrid near marking Mohamed Mizzian from Melilla
Real Madrid are in talks with Segunda División B club UD Melilla over the signing of 18-year-old starlet Mohamed Mizzian, with the LaLiga mammoths set to gobble up the forward, who is out of agreement this late spring, in spite of enthusiasm from Barcelona.
Mizzian to sign three-year deal and play for Castilla
An agreement is close to being reached, with Mizzian expected to arrive on a three-year contract in January, and go into the squad of the club’s ‘B’ group, Castilla.
Impressed club chiefs in Copa clash at Bernabéu
Los Blancos have been tracking the youngster, who has already experienced playing at the Bernabéu, for a number of months.
Mizzian began the second leg of Melilla’s Copa del Rey last-32 tie with Madrid this month – and, in spite of the fact that the minnows endured a 6-1 crush on the night, he inspired head of the capital club’s youth academy sufficiently to convince them to make their move.
Mizzian may have fixed his change to Madrid sooner, had talks not been briefly conveyed to a stop by the player’s choice to change operators.
In any case, the negotiations are now back in full swing and, barring any unforeseen setbacks, will see him join the European champions this winter.
