Rabat – Real Madrid has officially signed Mohamed Mizzian, 18, as a loan from his club UD Melilla.
The signing came as a surprise because of European champion clubs’ tradition of avoiding activity in the winter transfer window.
FC Barcelona was also interested in the Spanish-Moroccan player. Mizzian caught the eye of Madrid officials during a match between UD Melilla and Real Madrid in Copa del Rey.
Real Madrid will have the option to buy Mizzian’s contract at the end of this season, when his contract with Melilla ends, according to Spanish media.
The Royal Moroccan Football Federation (FRMF) summoned Mizzian for a training camp of the Moroccan national under-17 team in February 2016 in Toulouse, France.
