Latasa, born in Madrid on March 23, 2001, came to Factory in 2016 from Adarve. It took him a year to adapt to the demands of the white club: in his first year at Cadet A he could barely score a dozen goals despite the fact that his team scored more than 160 in total. But in his second season, already in Juvenil C, redeemed himself by scoring 31 goals. Since then, his progression has been unstoppable. He was part of the team that, for the first time in the history of the white club, managed to win the Youth League. He was the top scorer of that edition with eight goals, although he could not play the final against him. Benfica by penalty. To this must be added his presence in the lower categories of the Spanish team, having already been an international Under-19 and Under-20.

Raúl has been the coach who has gotten the most juice out of him. Aware of his ability, he gave him minutes at Castilla while he was still a youth. At his command, he won the continental title in his category and, last year, in his first full season at Castilla, Latasa played a fundamental role especially in the final stretch of the course, scoring four goals in the last six days to reach the coveted promotion phase that ensured them a place in the new First RFEF.

It is a tank striker, with a lot of power in the melee thanks to its 191 centimeters tall. It accompanies him with a great capacity for both finishing and generating spaces in the rival area. However, This does not exempt him from having a great footwork, both on his back and in front of goal. It was an aspect that had pending improvement and has done so in recent years. At the club, what they value most about Latasa is his ability to work and excel both in games and in training. His place this year is in the subsidiary, but in Madrid they know that he has a jewel that is willing to make people talk.
