Real Madrid are scouting United States youth international wonderkid Lateef Omidiji Jnr. and are ready to make a move once he is able to move.
Reports suggest that the Spanish giants were in England last week to watch the Feyenoord forward to see how he matched up against players from England.
Omidiji Jnr. was the standout star for Feyenoord, catching the eye of coaches from the oppositions side as well as the watching Real Madrid scout, saying:
”We have been watching Lateef for the past two years and continue to watch him-we already knew that he had technical abilities, great insight/clear understanding of the game and the right mentality to be a professional in Spain,”
”We also know that he has the physical qualities to compete in our league because of how fast he is and it’s not a knock on Dutch football but speed and strength is not their forte so we wanted to see him match up against players his age (most were actually older than him) and to see him be faster and stronger was a sight to see.
”We see Xavi at Barcelona and Karameko at Celtic and those are what the media consider the top two and place Lateef in the top five, that could be further from the truth because Lateef is far superior with regards to speed and power and is at the same level with them with regards to technique but his mentality is also far superior to the other two.”
The Las Vegas born forward is eligible to play for the United States and Nigeria at international level and Nigeria have been working hard to ensure he selects the Super Eagles but Omidiji Jnr could be the star US soccer needs to take them to the next level.
