Introducing the 11-year-old prodigy who Real Madrid have just signed

Remember the name Joshua Pynadath – he might well be one of the world’s biggest stars in years to come.

WHILE MOST OF the football media’s attention is currently focused on Gareth Bale’s potential Real Madrid move, the club have just made a signing that could eventually turn out to be equally important.

11-year-old American Joshua Pynadath caught the club’s attention thanks to a highlights video of him playing for the De Anza Force club, while also attracting the interest of Barcelona.

Following his big move, the youngster told reporters: “I was blown away when I got the official news from Real Madrid. They told me that I was the first American that they have ever accepted into their academy. I told them that I would set a good example.”

Check out the video below of Pynadath in action while on trial at Real Madrid.
