20 Real Madrid Youngsters Who Never Stepped Up

The emergence of Jese and Alvaro Morata appears to mean there is a greater emphasis on youth at Real Madrid than we are used to.

This was always Florentino Perez's plan; the original Galactico model was to sign the world's best players alongside the promotion of youngsters, via Wikipedia.

It never really worked out that way; whilst the superstars arrived for world-record transfer fees, the expectations at the club meant that managers were less patient with those who needed it the most.

Some players went on to enjoy successful careers elsewhere, such as Roberto Soldado, Borja Valero and Juan Mata.

This is a list of those who never really made it at Real Madrid, dropping a significant level as a player or fading away into obscurity without fulfilling their promise.
