Super Eagles’ and Villarreal of Spain forward, Samuel Chukwueze has declared that he is 120% ready for Real Madrid when both teams clash in a rescheduled match day 17 fixture on Thursday, AOIFootball.com reports.
Despite continuous interests from top English clubs, the 19-year-old told AOIFootball.com exclusively that he hopes to begin the New Year on a high, starting with the game against Real Madrid.
“I’m 120% ready for the match; it won’t be an easy match but hopefully we can get the desired result. We have trained hard for the match and can’t wait for Thursday.
“They are a good side with lots of world-class players but big names don’t play football and hopefully we can surprise them and give our fans a perfect New Year present,” Chukwueze said.
When asked of his targets going into 2019, the 2015 U-17 World Cup winner stated that he hopes to even do better than last year and continue to improve on and off the field.
