The father of Real Madrid trialist Mark Norris admits their priority is to sign for Manchester United. Mark Norris, an 11 –year-old central midfielder from Whitehead in County Antrim, has been granted a trial with Spanish giants, Real Madrid.
Speaking on the BBC his father, Keith, revealed: ‘’He is still only 11-years-old, he is only a kid, there are a lot of good footballers in Northern Ireland and he is so lucky. People can think one guy has potentials and one guy hasn’t, it is up to Mark, if he wants to make it, he has to make it himself.’’
Keith, an avid Manchester United fan, was asked what would happen if the Red Devils were to express an interest? He answered: I’m a Manchester United fan so that answers that question
Mark is currently with the Linfield FC academy, and the trial with Real Madris is due to take place in 2016. The youngster has been at Real Madrid in the past for a tournament with Greenisland Football Club a couple of years ago.
The 11 year old stated that his favourite player is former Manchester United hero Cristiano Ronaldo; who happens to play for Real Madrid because Ronaldo scores the most goals and has good skills. He is still only 11 years of age, if he keeps developing, May be the Red Devils would swoop for him and make his dreams come through.
