The promising Argentinian made his La Liga debut for RCD Mallorca at only 15 years and 219 days old, which highlights his massive potential.

The 16-year-old Romero also made two Copa Del Rey appearances for the first team last campaign. The player will now join the Biancocelesti’s youth set-up, which is undergoing a mini-revolution currently following on from the Primavera squad’s relegation from the top division.
