Alavro Benito, the former Real Madrid youth coach and player now turned Spanish football analyst, has revealed who he believes is the best young talent in Real Madrid’s youth system. In an interview with Spanish radio station, El Laguero, Benito described a 17-year-old playmaking midfielder as the one to watch for the future.

“Bruno Iglesias is a player with spectacular conditions,” Benito explained. “He is a player similar to Kaka. He is the best talent there is in La Fabrica at the moment.”

Bruno Iglesias currently plies his trade with Real Madrid’s Juvenil A. He has been characterized as a central attacking midfielder, but can also drift out wide as a left winger. The player has recently signed a new contract keeping him at the club until 2023. In his last match, Iglesias provided three assists and has been reportedly putting on exhibition after exhibition. The 2003 generation is another talented group of players to come through La Fabrica. Teammates, Israel Salazar (striker) and Alvaro Carrillo (center-back), are two other names for fans to watch progress over the coming years.
