Eidur Gudjohnsen will crown 20 years of international football at Euro 2016.

UEFA Champions League holders Real Madrid have snapped up the teenage son of former Barcelona, Chelsea and Iceland star Eidur Gudjohnsen.

Andri Lucas Gudjohnsen, 16, posted on Instagram on Tuesday that he’d joined the capital giants. This followed spells at Barca’s La Masia academy, Espanyol and the Iceland junior sides.

“Very excited and proud to announce that I have signed with Real Madrid!” he wrote on Instagram. “Looking forward to the future.”

SPORT have stated that younger brother Daniel is also expected to be imminently announced as joining Madrid too, after playing a starring role for Barca’s U-12’s last term.

The Gudjiohnsens represent a football dynasty.

Eidur, 39, retired in 2016 after a celebrated career that saw him win La Liga and the Champions League at Barca from 2006-09. The artful forward also represented the likes of PSV Eindhoven and Monaco.

His father, Arnor, had a successful career of his own at the likes of Anderlecht and Bordeaux.

World Cup star: Croat Kovacic wants to leave the club.

Real Madrid star Mateo Kovacic is trying to force a move out of the club before the La Liga transfer window deadline on August 31.

The Croatian World Cup star, who is still in the Spanish capital and did not travel with the rest of the Whites squad for their pre-season tour stateside, according to Marca, failed to report to training on Monday at the club’s Valdebebas complex.

The Madrid-based news outlet effectively states the 24-year-old has gone on strike after boss Julen Lopetegui said he was not for sale.

Kovacic, himself, wants to leave Madrid after three frustrating seasons since his arrival from Inter Milan back in the summer of 2015.

It remains to be seen whether a side will come in for Kovacic this month and rescue him, while he has been linked with a fairytale return to Dinamo Zagreb – the club where he started his career – as well as Manchester United.
