OFFICIAL: Real Madrid sign 18-year-old goalkeeper Mario de Luis from Rayo Vallecano

Real Madrid have snatched promising goalkeeper Mario de Luis from Rayo Vallecano on a four-year deal until 2024.

The player will be transferred to the U19 squad (Juvenil A) ahead of the next season.

The 18-year-old Spaniard himself also confirmed the move and bid a farewell to his current side on social media.

"Today is a difficult day for me," he wrote on Instagram. "I have to say goodbye to what has been my home for the past four seasons.

"There are many memories, emotions and the images of everything I've lived with this club, Rayo has made me grow in every way and has given me values that I will always hold."

De Luis is said to be a highly-rated shot-stopper who has been featuring for Rayo B this season. Marca suggest that he was close to being promoted to the senior team once La Liga returned.

The 1.85m tall teenager hasn't conceded any goals in the five games he has played for the U19 side.
