Luka Romero broke the record of Sanson
Luca Romero’s name was etched into LaLiga’s history books on Wednesday night. After Real Mallorca being 2-0 defeat away to Real Madrid at the age of 15 years and 255 days. The playmaker, who was born in Mexico to Argentine parents. But has lived in Spain for two years, broke the record that Sanson previously held. Romero spent five years at the Academy of Mallorca before making his debut in the first team on June 24, 2020. When Romero was two years old, he and his family moved to Spain from Ecuador when his father, Diego Romero, joined the CD Villanueva de Cordoba. Since 2007, Diego played for various clubs in Andalusia, until in 2011. He signed a contract with UD Formentera. At this time, Luka began to play organized football at PE Sant Jordi in Ibiza.
At the end of 2011, Romero even had discussed with Barcelona. But FIFA regulations did not allow him to join the Blaugrana because he did not live in Barcelona. Even so, at La Masia, they were delighted with what they saw in the young footballer. In 2015, Diego signed a contract with Montuiri, the club of Mallorca itself, and Luka joined Real Mallorca. Romero’s record at Mallorca is outrageous: in 108 games, he scored 230 goals – an average of more than two per game. These figures attracted the attention of the national teams of Mexico, Spain, and Argentina. However, it was the last – the country of his parents – he still represented at the youth level.
