Barcelona and Real Madrid eye Fulham youngster

Published Add your comment

Barcelona and Real Madrid have emerged as the latest European giants to be keeping tabs on Fulham's 17-year-old starlet Patrick Roberts. 

The Spanish giants have reportedly been informed about the talents of the young attacking midfielder, and have been linked with making a move for the player in the future. 

Roberts signed his first professional contract with Fulham only last week, after celebrating his 17th birthday. 

Manchester United have also reported to have earmarked Roberts as a potential future star. 

Roberts is described as having an 'impressive blend of skill and technique' with 'confident dribbling ability.'

Despite his age, the Fulham youth player has made appearances for the club's under-21 side and also represented England at youth level.

Fulham lost the talents of Chris Smalling to Manchester United in recent times, so will not want to let their latest crop of potential superstars slip through their fingers without a fight.
