Castilla secure two youngsters

Real Madrid Castilla picked up two youngsters on deadline day, signing Lazio forward Antonio Rozzi and Atletico Madrid defender Leandro Cabrera.

Rozzi yesterday moved to Madrid’s subsidiary unit for the season on a year-long loan deal from the Italian capital.

Included in the deal for the 19-year-old striker, Los Blancos have a purchase option to make it permanent.

Meanwhile, Coach Alberto Toril also gets the extra defender he was reportedly after, as Cabrera arrives from cross-town rivals Atletico.

The 22-year-old Uruguayan, who has had successive loan spells at Recreativo, Numancia and Hercules in the last three seasons, makes the short journey across the Spanish capital after rescinding his contract with Los Colchoneros.
