Juanfran joined Real Madrid Castilla in the summer of 2009 from Getafe B, and he had made one appearance for the Getafe first team in the preseason. He's a very skilled winger and has a similar playing style to Miguel Palanca, except more skilled on the ball. He has been in great form in the last few months for Castilla scoring 3 goals from the wing. He's an unpolished gem, who may need time in the Segunda or Primera. But he could very easily be in the first team next year as the squad is lacking backup wingers. Pellegrini is said to be very impressed with his skill level, and he has been doing very well in training, he scored six goals in a training match behind against the Real Madrid first team which got a round of applause from Ronaldo.
Mahmoudou Diarra even labelled him as 'Madrid's very own Pedro' and there's no doubt he isn't the only one impressed with the youngster.. http://www.marca.com/2010/04/26/futb...272305997.html
He made the first team bench against Almeria and he had his debut yesterday against Osasuna! he made a big impact. As I said before, it might not have been direct impact, but he replaced Gago and added much needed width to the squad. He is also in the squad to face Mallorca tomorrow and we could see more of Madrid's very own Pedro!
