Real Madrid’s new star – Asier Illarramendi

Is it too early to call him a star? Well, he certainly played very well for Spain in the U21 Championships. The defensive midfielder made quite an impression, helping the team reach, and win the Championships.

Illarramendi, dubbed as the “new Xabi Alonso”, today moved to Real Madrid for a fee of £34 million. 

Now you’re probably thinking “what a huge amount paid”. Yes, I agree. But, remember Ronaldo (Brazilian one)? He was bought for £28 million, and Madrid got the very best out of him. Also, Zidane. Some could argue that he was one of the worlds best players whilst at Madrid.

So, this deal may be good. He’s a young player, only 23, so has lots and lots of years, to become an even better player than he already is.
