Transfer news: Danish starlet Marco Ramkilde joins "hero" Michael Laudrup at Atletico Madrid

16 year old AaB striker Marco Ramkilde has rejected Brian Laudrup's Borussia Dortmund to play under his "hero" Michael Laudrup in Madrid.

Despite early interest from clubs around Europe, Danish sensation Marco Ramkilde has officially agreed professional terms with Atletico Madrid. The teenager, who has scored two goals in three appearances for AaB's first team this year, will play in Los Colchoneros' U19 side.

Michael Laudrup is widely considered the greatest footballer Denmark has ever produced, and this time around, he's used that reputation to steal the newest Danish gem right out of his brother Brian's fingers and lure him over to the Estadio Vicente Calderon in Spain.

Marco Ramkilde, a 16 year old striker that plied his trade at AaB in the Danish Superliga, was reportedly in advanced talks with Brian Laudrup over a potential move to Borussia Dortmund. However, it seems Atletico joined the discussion late on, and Ramkilde quickly chose to go to Spain to work under his childhood favorite Michael Laudrup.

Nobody outside of Denmark had even heard of the 6'1" teenager until a few days ago. Having come up through the AaB youth system, Ramkilde had scored goals galore at lower levels, but was shocked to have been handed first team opportunities this season. He promptly took those opportunities, scoring twice and assisting once in three first team appearances, bursting onto the world scene.

"When I first got a call from Michael Laudrup I was shocked," the 16 year old told reporters. "I had quite literally been doing science homework, and I received a phone call from the man I watched every weekend growing up, and he told me he wanted me at his club. It was like a dream."

Michael Laudrup, obviously determined to help grow the Danish game through this move, has promised that Ramkilde is one of the finest young strikers in the world. Having signed a contract through 2017, the attacker will play this season in the U19's to prove his readiness for either a loan or first team action next year.

There has been no comment yet from the Borussia Dortmund camp, but one thing is obvious; in this little episode of sibling rivalry, Brian has been forced to take a back-seat as Michael wins yet another player.
