The 55 best young prospects in Spanish football



The 2018/19 Football Draft was held on Wednesday lunchtime at the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF)’s headquarters at Las Rozas, with 55 of the best male prospects in Spain being selected, along with 33 of the most promising female players.

These 55 players will be hoping to be selected in the gold, silver or bronze elevens in the male categories, and the golden eleven for the women, perhaps an early indication of how far they could go in their careers.

On Thursday, voting will start whereby fans can choose their favourite prospects in the male and female categories on the Football Draft website (www.futboldraft.com).

These are the 55 best prospects in Spanish football:
