Francisco José Molina, sports director of the RFEF, met with the 15-year-old midfielder in Mallorca and tempted him to join La Roja.
Just four months ago, Luka Romero made headlines on the world’s leading sports portals for the incredible fact of becoming the youngest debutant in La Liga history. With 15 years and 219 days and syndicated by many as the “new Messi, although he prefers to avoid those odious comparisons, he entered the Mallorca match against Real Madrid for seven minutes and recorded his name in the history of Spanish football.
Due to his talent, Luka has already been called up on several occasions to the Argentina Under 15 National Team, but the AFA is not the only federation interested in the Mexican-born soccer player. Spain is also in the footsteps of the player and In the last hours he made a new attempt to convince him to put on the Red shirt.
Francisco Jose Molina, sports director of the RFEF, traveled to Palma Mallorca to meet with Luka with a single purpose: to let him know that the coaches of the youth teams in Spain are interested in having him. The meeting was held in a restaurant in the city and was captured by the IB3 cameras.
Although Romero was born in Mexico, at the age of three he moved to Spain with his family, following in the footsteps of his father, Diego, also a soccer player.
Consequently, the young promise has three nationalities: Mexican, Spanish and Argentine, by her parents. Luka has already made it clear on several occasions that his wish is to play with the National Team, but Spain does not give up and has been following his evolution for a long time.
“As far as possible I want to play for the Argentine National Team”said Romero, last July, in dialogue via videoconference with the program “90 minutes of football.”
After going down in history with his early debut, Luka did not play in La Liga again and, with the relegation of Mallorca, he already played 41 minutes in the Second Division. Will they make me change my mind?
