Right-back Javier Manquillo joined Newcastle United on a permanent deal from Spanish giants Atlético Madrid in summer 2017.
Born in the Spanish capital, Javier began his career with Atlético’s city rivals Real Madrid but switched clubs alongside his twin brother, Víctor, in 2007.
Emerging through the youth ranks, Javier made his first team debut in a friendly against Egyptian side Zamalek SC in 2011 before making his competitive debut a month later in a Copa del Rey tie.
In August 2014, he moved to the Premier League on a two-season loan with Liverpool before a year-long loan spell in France with Marseille and a second loan spell in the Premier League with eventually-relegated Sunderland during the 2016/17 campaign.
Javier became the Magpies’ fourth signing of the summer in 2017, joining Newcastle United ahead of the 2017/18 Premier League season.
