Real youngster set for Leyton trial

Real Madrid youngster Jaime Navarro is set for a trial at League One outfit Leyton Orient after Cristiano Ronaldo encouraged him to try his luck in England.

The 20-year-old centre-half spent last season with Los Merengues's second reserve team Real Madrid C, and is ready to swap the Bernabeu for the Matchroom Stadium in an effort to make the Premier League.

"I would like to go to England because it is known that the leagues there are the best in Europe," said Navarro, who went on trial at SPL side Motherwell last month. "They are very, very competitive and known for taking care of the young players.

"For me as a defender, England would give me the opportunity to develop my skills. Cristiano and other senior players at Real Madrid also think that."

Ronaldo, who spent six years in England with Manchester United, introduced Navarro to agent Johnathon Hope, who expects Navarro to be playing Premier League football within three years.

"Cristiano had a chat with him and told him that his style of play would be suited to England and that Manchester is a great place to live," Hope said. "When Jaime settles and fills out physically then be assured he is going to be a top player."

"But we have to take one step at a time and we think that giving him experience in the lower leagues is the best way forward for him. He wants to play at the highest level he can but he's not afraid to start lower down and make a name for himself in England."

Jaime joined Real Madrid's academy at age 16 and is out of contract with the organisation this summer when he will be free to sign a pre-contract in England.
