That's actually Sergio Asenjo -- a young, FEROCIOUS and a highly rated Spanish keeper who is poised to become the "next Iker Casillas". He previously played for Valladolid and was just signed by Atletico Madrid for £5.5m and the loan of their striker Diego Costa.
But let's see, in order for him to replace San Iker, he'll have to achieve god-like status, have a tshirt made after him, destroy our ovaries by doing charitable things, have epic glove tans, make our hearts stop by simply eating an apple, etc etc etc. Is this guy next to take the place of our favourite #1 ballstopper? Ummmm maybe. But skill-wise, he's practically there! The two have met and Asenjo
Top European clubs such as Manchester United and Barcelona have been eying Spain's U21 keeper, but instead he has moved to Spain's capital city, bringing him closer to his role-model and perhaps closer to mimicking his career.
With the exit of Leo Franco and Gregory Coupet, Asenjo will tackle the role of being Atletico's first-choice keeper, after just peacing out of his teenage years! Meanwhile, I can't even find a job folding clothes and pressing buttons at a cash register.
So watch out for this guy because he's gonna be Spain's next big thing after Iker retires. And after his hair thins out. Even more. Yeah I went there.
(We also had a brief Facebook stint but he deleted me shortly after accepting my request lol jerk)
