Linda Caicedo and Vicky López, the future of women’s football at Real Madrid and FC Barcelona
Linda Caicedo and Vicky López are considered the best young footballers in the world.
The future of women’s football is shared out between FC Barcelona and Real Madrid. The two great talents of the sport are in Spain and their names are here to be remembered: Vicky López and Linda Caicedo. Two teenagers that are out to conquer the world.
Linda Caicedo, at just 18 years old, has arrived in Spain and is already a revelation in her country of Colombia, as well as the leader of her national team. Her transfer to Madrid has had a worldwide repercussion, but she is not the only young talent in Spain.
Vicky López is another diamond, one that arrived to FC Barcelona from Madrid Club de Fútbol Femenino and she has not stopped breaking records since she touched down in Cataluña: she is the youngest player to play and score in the Liga F, as well as being the youngest player ever to feature in the Champions League.
Sliding doors in Liga F
Real Madrid and FC Barcelona are fighting to get hold of the best talents across the world. In fact, Barça tempted the Colombian and they had her looking at a deal until she decided to sign for Real Madrid. The story with Vicky López was flipped: she was tempted by Madrid before FC Barcelona swooped in.
Both footballers clashed in the final of the Under-17 World Cup, won by Spain under the management of Kenio Gonzalo. Linda took her side to their first World Cup final while Vicky led her team to glory with goals and assists during the difficult tournament. Vicky and Linda were rivals then and they are going to see each other once again in the league and beyond.
