The 16-year-old signed for Los Blancos in January, and has long been touted as one of the best young talents in world football. He certainly must be at the top end to make the La Liga giants sign him, with the Galacticos not known for their willingness to put trust in youth.

This is not the first professional game that the teenager has played, having been a regular for Norwegian side Stromsgodset before leaving at the beginning of the year. The midfielder has even played for the Norwegian national team four times, breaking several records.

He beat a 100-year-old record became the youngest Norway debutant ever when he was just 15-years-old against the UAE last August, and also became the youngest player to take part in a European Championship qualifier when he came off the bench against Bulgaria in September.

Could this be the first glimpse of an amazing talent on the big stage?
