While Real Madrid might not be active in the transfer market for any major signings this summer, it looks like they haven’t slowed down in their pursuit of talented youngsters.
The B team is stacked with talents who should be pushing for a first team spot in the next few years, and Mundo Deportivo have suggested they’ve made another promising signing.
David Mellado is a talented midfielder who’s already made his debut in the third tier for Salamanca, and the report suggests that he was close to a move to Real Valladolid before Real Madrid swooped in.

Despite his first team experience at Salamanca it doesn’t sound like he’s being signed as a senior player for this season, with Mundo Deportivo suggesting that he’ll go straight into Real’s youth setup.
