Real Madrid have done a great job when it comes to identifying and signing some of the best talents from all around the world. Their transfer policy has undergone a drastic change in recent years. The likes of Eduardo Camavinga, Fede Valverde, Vinicius Jr, Rodrygo, Jude Bellingham and Arda Guler were all brought in as teenagers. On the other hand, they have already agreed a deal for Endrick, the Brazilian wonderkid who has earned comparisons to Ronaldo Nazario.
The club are being linked with one of the most highly-rated young talents in Spanish football right now. But city rivals, Atletico Madrid, seem to have an eye on the youngster as well.
The player in question is Getafe’s Santi Garcia. The 21-year-old made his long-awaited debut in La Liga last weekend after being a standout at the youth and developmental levels for a long time.
As reported by MARCA, after an excellent pre-season, Garcia has received several calls asking about him. Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid met with Jorge Mendes’ entourage. They want to follow his progression.

It will be very interesting to see how Garcia’s development continues at the senior level. As a result of complex circumstances, he has only made his debut in the Spanish top flight at 21 years of age.
There is no question about his talent though. And it would not be a surprise if Garcia is no longer at Getafe in the near future, considering the level of the clubs being linked with the youngster. Let’s see what the future holds.
At Getafe, Garcia will be hoping to get consistent playing time and make an impression. The club have established themselves in the bottom half of the league, having finished 15th in La Liga for three consecutive seasons.
