New signing Sergio Diaz is delighted to be joining Real Madrid, but the Paraguay starlet is yet to find out whether he’ll be joining the Real Madrid first team for pre-season or playing for the club’s Castilla side.
The 18-year-old is yet to be officially unveiled by the Santiago Bernabeu side, but Marca are reporting that the striker has joined Madrid from Cerro Porteno in a €6m deal. Should he feature for the first team, Diaz would be the first Paraguayan to feature for the current Champions League holders.
Marca said Diaz had a medical shortly after arriving in Madrid on Thursday and has signed a six-year contract.
The young starlet has a big reputation as a rising star in Paraguay and has already drawn comparisons with Sergio Aguero in his home country.
Speaking to Marca at Madrid’s Adolfo Suarez-Barajas airport prior to his medical, Diaz said: “I arrive at the most powerful club in the world to help and show my talent and that of Paraguay. I will give everything possible to do well.
“I still do not know who I will be doing the pre-season with. I guess I will be told in the next few days.”
Diaz has played for Paraguay’s U20s since he turned 16 and also featured for the U23s at this year’s Toulon Tournament, where he was one of the stars of the tournament.
Despite the uncertainty surrounding his pre-season preparations, Diaz is very much looking forward to getting started with the Champions League holders. So much so, in fact, that he has already promised to give his all for the club during his time at the Santiago Bernabeu through a post on Instagram.
Diaz wrote on his Instagram account: “I thank Real Madrid for putting their trust in me and for giving me the opportunity to show my game in Europe.”
“I will give my all for a club where I always wanted to play.”
