6 Brazilian Talents Who Could Join Real

In their attempt to find "the next Neymar", Spanish giants Real Madrid have spent €90 million on two Brazilian wonderkids over the past two seasons, and a report suggests that they are keen to add more Brazilian talents to their ranks.

Tired of reading? Click through the gallery above to see six Brazilian talents who have been linked with Real.

Vinicius Junior, who arrived at the Santiago Bernabeu in July this year when he turned 18, was signed in 2017 already, while Rodrygo was bought in the latest transfer window, but will only join the club in January after his 18th birthday.

However, Spanish publication AS believes Real are continuing to scout the Brazilian market in order to find the next wonderkid.

The club's chief scout, Juni Calafat, who himself is Brazilian, reportedly keeps close tabs on talent from the South American country, with the following six names understood to be on Los Blancos' radar.

Flamengo forward Vitor Gabriel is one of the names Real are reportedly keeping close tabs on. The 18-year-old is a powerful and creative forward, and is expected to make his breakthrough imminently.

Meanwhile, Palmeiras midfielder Alan is said to be one of Brazil's biggest up-and-coming talents. His fine performances at the FIFA U17 World Cup in India, in which he starred alongside Vinicius, last year brought the diminutive midfielder to Real's attention.

Yuri Alberto, currently on the books of Pele and Neymar's former club Santos, emerged around the same time recent Los Blancos acquisition Rodrygo did. The 17-year-old can play on the wing or as a forward and is a fine finisher.

Another starlet linked with Real is Vinicius' former teammate Yuri Cesar. The 17-year-old is a quick and agile left-winger at Flamengo and said to be a star in the making.

Kaio Jorge, a 16-year-old striker who plays for Santos' youth sides, is the fifth name on the list. Despite his young age, he has already been called up to the Brazilian side's first team squad, and scouts believe he could become an out-and-out centre-forward of the sort Brazil has long struggled to produce.

Gabriel Veron is the youngest of the reported Los Blancos targets, but the 15-year-old impressed the club's scout in the junior Club World Cup final in June. He scored once and assisted another strike in a Man of the Match performance in Palmeiras' 4-2 win over Real's youth team.
