Manyisa attracts Real Madrid interest


Real Madrid are said to be tracking the progress of a promising eSwatini playmaker Leon Manyisa after attending a trial period at the LaLiga giants.

Manyisa, 18, currently on the books of Vovovo FC was invited to train with the club's B team after impressing a scout from Real who was on holiday in the Southern African nation.

According to BBC Football, he was invited for another assessment at the 13-time European champions but failed to attend due to visa issues.

"I got a call to go for trials at Real Madrid, I was so excited," Manyisa said. "I started playing for the national team while I was young at the age of six.

"I started from U13 all the way up to the senior team this year - I was so afraid to go to Real but it was a great achievement for me."

Manyisa will now be aiming to cement his place in Kosta Papic's senior set-up as he looks to maintain his incredible development under the watchful eyes of Los Blancos.
