If you think signing young teenagers to a sports contract or offering middle schoolers scholarships is wrong, this story will set you through the roof. We all know how serious Real Madrid fans take their team. Real Madrid is the king of Spain in the football world. Signing youngsters is no new thing for soccer teams across the world, but how young is too young? How about 7 years old?
That’s right, Real Madrid recently announced that they have signed a 7-year-old Argentinian boy named Leonel Angel Coira. No, not signed an autograph for the young boy — signed him to a contract to play soccer for them. How anyone can think this is a good idea amazes me.
