real madrid castilla

normally, the purpose of this blog is to provide bits of random, funny, interesting and bizarre real madrid trivia to tumblr football fans at large. but every so often, there’s something that’s at once so hilarious and niche and so specifically attuned to a single person’s interests that i can’t help but share it. 

to wit: here is a blurry photo of dani carvajal wearing a bow in his hair at the 2011 real madrid castilla christmas dinner. 

the picture comes from fellow canterano denis cheryshev’s twitter

Gorgeous girl ;)

@barbajals​, this one’s for u guapísima.

ps i can’t be 100% positive but i’m pretty sure that’s alvaro morata in the santa hat next to him, thanks to this tweet alvaro posted that night:

At the team dinner. For a change. @AlexFdez8 and @DaniCarvajal92 by my sides like dogs.

“It is an honor and a dream come true. The reason I chose to join Real Madrid is that this team has the best conditions for both sporting development, as a player, and externally to develop as a person. It is the best option for me. It seems incredible to be playing for a team like this.”
