Matias Palacios: “I would like to play at Barcelona or Real Madrid”


Argentina youth starlet Matias Palacios has reportedly attracted interest from both Barcelona and Real Madrid.

Part of Pablo Aimar’s Argentina U17 team at the World Cup, Matias Palacio spoke about the supposed interest shown by both clubs. Speaking after the 0-0 draw vs. Spain, the San Lorenzo man had this to say:

“I had heard about it through social media. It’s really nice that they are interested but I have my head here and I’m trying to do well.”


  1. I didn’t know him and Zellabos before this match, I have feeling that Aimar wanted Palacios to play as trequartista with Zeballos and Sforza supporting him. Sflorza more like a creative CM receiving ball deep to initiate attack, Zellabos more by inspiration and Palacios in total freedom. In order to play in this way, you also need fullbacks move a lot in order to provide the trequartista more solutions, but I found that it wasn’t the case. Few times Palacios had no solution and can only keep the ball and expect opponents committing a fault on him. Hope they will play better together in the next 2 games. Less and less coach wants Trequartista now and I found Aimar very courageous to keep that.

    • Now he’s getting more minutes. If hes back to his best…no probs. Still, we have to find out proper CB pair and backup. May be as a backup…he still has chances. Especially, if Scaloni thinking of 3 man backline as his one of the alternative plans.
