Real Madrid beat Barcelona to Melilla’s Mohamed Mizzian

Real Madrid are closing in on the signing of Melilla’s teenage striker Mohamed Mizzian, according to multiple reports.

Marca report the 18-year-old has already passed his medical at Los Blancos while Diario AS say negotiations, while advanced, have not yet been completed.

Mizzian is said to be close to agreeing a three-year deal with the European champions in a deal commencing in January, with the striker’s current contract at Melilla up in summer.

The teenager featured in the Copa del Rey tie between the clubs earlier this season which is thought to have alerted Madrid into speeding up a deal, with Barcelona also said to be interested.

Mizzian recently changed agents and is thought to go straight into Madrid’s Castilla B side.
