Linda Caicedo joins Real Madrid from a Colombian side, Deportivo Cali.
The 18-year-old, who is considered one of the biggest talents in the women’s game, played for América de Cali before joining Deportivo in 2020. The Colombian forward, who already has 16 caps for the national team, was also on radar of Barcelona, but chose to join Las Blancas. At the 2022 Copa America, Caicedo was voted best player of the tournament.
“I am humbled and grateful to Real Madrid for making this girl’s dream a reality. Thank you for believing in my work and potential and I will work with a lot of respect, strength and all my energy so that together we can take this shield and fans to great joys,” wrote Caicedo on Instagram.
