By Xinhua

BEIJING - Spanish La Liga giants Real Madrid signed a five-year contract with Lin Liangming, a winger of Chinese U-19 team, on 300,000 euros this week.

Real Madrid are seeking to have one Chinese in their squad, but the national team players are not persuasive enough to interest the Spanish club, instead Lin from China's U-19 squad makes the deal inked.

Lin will join the Real Madrid U-19 youth team and play the European Youth League first.

In the U-19 eight-nation tournament in Slovakia on April, Lin's performance won himself the attention of top clubs and a couple of European outfits showed their willingness to sign him. Lin further proved his outstanding ability during the Lisbon Cup in Portugal in June.

Lin is fast and very skillful in ball control. Real Madrid's scout was present in the two tournaments and impressed by Lin's capability, which made the contract happen.
