Alex Hunter's Journey Continues At Real Madrid

Posted August 6th at 9:30am.

Real Madrid are pleased to confirm the transfer of 19-year-old English forward Alex Hunter.

Hunter has completed his rise to the pinnacle of world football after taking the Premier League by storm as a 17-year-old. In an unprecedented move for a player of his age, Hunter joined the LA Galaxy and won an MLS Cup before returning to Europe. He joins the Spanish giants after leading his club to a domestic league and cup double at the end of last season. 

Hunter will take his favoured number 29 shirt at Real Madrid.

After being strongly rumoured to join Los Blancos before last season, Hunter will finally team up with Luka Modric, Toni Kroos, and Sergio Ramos for the 2018-19 season to form the core of a team that is aiming to win an unprecedented fourth successive UEFA Champions League trophy.

“It's everything I’ve ever wanted, simple as that.” said Hunter. “To join Real Madrid, the biggest club in the world, is what every kid like me dreams about. And on top of it all, I’m just buzzing to finally get my chance to play in the biggest club competition in the world, the UEFA Champions League.”

Raphaël Varane, Dani Carvajal, Theo Hernández and Dani Ceballos were among the Real Madrid players to welcome Hunter to the club during his official reveal at the Santiago Bernabéu. After the presentation ceremony, the forward put on the iconic white kit and posed for the media on the pitch. Hunter thanked the fans for their affection, and warm welcome. 

“I'm ready to go,” said Hunter. “This is a massive next step in my career, and I couldn't be more excited.”
