Reports: Real Madrid Close To Signing Brazilian
Spanish giants Real Madrid are believed to be close to securing the signature of a Brazilian midfielder.
Despite the transfer window having closed, Real are reportedly not far away from snapping up 17-year-old Brazilian midfielder Rodrigo Antonio Rodrigues.
The Gremio starlet will only officially join Los Blancos after his 18th birthday, as will be the case with Flamengo wonderkid Vinicius Junior.
According to Marca, Rodrigues will sign for Real once he has been shown around the club’s training facilities and undergone a medical.
The report claim that by targeting younger players, Los Blancos are attempting to discover talented starlets before they huge values are placed on their heads.
The midfielder is yet to feature for his club’s senior team, according to Transfermarkt.
What do you think of Real’s strategy? Let us know in the comments section below.
