Official: Madrid sign Yabusele

In an official statement, the white team announces the hiring of the French player. The power forward arrives to reinforce the internal game of the entity.


It's official: Guerschon Yabusele is a Real Madrid player. The Whites, in an official statement, have announced it as follows: "Real Madrid CF has reached an agreement with Guerschon Yabusele, power forward from LDLC ASVEL. The player will remain linked to the club during the next season 2021- 2022 ". As in the case of Thomas Heurtel, with whom he has shared a team, it was an open secret. The French player, in this way, arrives to reinforce Pablo Laso's inner game, diminished throughout the season by casualties and, also, with the departure of Usman Garuba towards the NBA in sight. This season, at ASVEL and alongside Moustapha Fall, Yabusele has formed one of the most fearsome indoor couples on the continent. With the French entity, in the Euroleague, he has averaged 11 points, 4.2 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 30 games.In his first words as a Real Madrid player, where he will wear the number 28, the power forward was very excited about everything that awaits him: "I feel very good, I am very happy to be here. I am very grateful to be in such a great club and with so much history. It is something very important to me. Everything that Real Madrid has, the titles, the history of the club ... It is very special and being part of it is also very special for me and my family. I really want to start playing with the team, "he assured.

Guerschon Yabusele, at 25, was one of the most sought-after players on the continental market, where he has relaunched his career after his time in the NBA, where he played two years with the Boston Celtics (2017-19). In the North American competition, in which he played 74 games, he could only average 6.6 minutes, producing 2.3 points and 1.4 rebounds; but he noted his charisma, with his celebration after the triples as one of the reasons for the greatest celebration in the stands. At 2.02 meters high, it stands out for its physical characteristics and, above the rest, for a large lower body that allows it to generate its own spaces and defend practically all positions ('2', '3' and '4', mainly). This year, in addition, it has been shown as a real threat from long distance. In Euroleague, it has presented a 38.4% success rate from the perimeter.

Currently, the power forward is concentrated with the French team, with which he will travel to the Tokyo Olympics. Without going any further, he played the two friendly matches against Spain, leaving very good feelings before part of his future audience. Along with Vincent Porier, Fabien Causeur and Heurtel himself, he will be the fourth French member of Laso's squad. "I was playing with Thomas and he told me many things about Madrid, the city and the team. I also spoke with Poirier. It is not the reason why I am here, but he helped me. It will be fun to share the track with Tavares," he explained in this regard.

The Madrid squad takes shape

With the arrival of Yabusele, Real Madrid continues to advance in the preparation of its next squad, close to completing all its objectives. This same week, the possible renewal of Jaycee Carroll was news. Along with the new connection of the American escort, the arrival of Adam Hanga could be the next move to become official. It would be the fourth incorporation of the group of the capital after Thomas Heurtel, the American combo Nigel Williams-Goss and Yabusele himself. "I try to win all the titles. I'm looking forward to seeing the fans, feeling the atmosphere in the WiZink Center and playing for the team. We do this for the public. We've been without them all year and I'm looking forward to starting play in front of the Real Madrid fans, "added the latter, in his first words as white.
