Reports exclusively gathered by Owngoalnigeria.com can confirm that Real Madrid are watching Spezia Nigerian forward Suleiman Abdullahi, who is presently scoring for fun in the Italian Primavera League.

Real Madrid got wind of his talents, when he scored twice against them in the final of a youth tournament in Croatia, where he finished as top scorer for Football Academy Abuja, who were Champions at the tournament.

The existing agreement between Serie B side Spezia and the Abuja Academy saw him move to them immediately after the tournament but Real Madrid have not stopped monitoring his progress.

Yesterday when Spezia captained by another Nigerian Tahir Maigini lost 4-1 to AC Milan in a Primavera game, scouts from the La-Liga giants were in attendance and the 17 year old scored the only goal for his team.

So far he has five goals in seven Primavera games, a tally that makes him the top scorer of his team, and also in the youth league in Italy which is closely followed by scouts of top European clubs.
