The 19-year-old attracted interest from all over Europe, but insists Los Blancos was the right choice for him.

“Here I can grow alongside the best players in the world to try and reach my maximum potential as a footballer.
“There is no pressure though, it was not hard to say yes to Madrid – I want to be here because it’s the best club in the world with the best players and I am here because I want to be.
“Marcelo? He is the best full-back in the world and I have to work hard to follow in his footsteps and learn from him.
“He is the best player to learn from and I will do all I can to get some games and follow what he does on the pitch.”
