Real Madrid on a new Brazilian crack

Building on its successes with Vinicius Junior (22) and Rodrygo Goes (21), and even if Reinier Jesus (20, loaned to Girona) is still struggling to confirm, Real Madrid are satisfied with their Brazilian networks and could go on a nugget hunt. Becoming a Flamengo executive at 21, João Gomes, who is under contract with the Rio de Janeiro club until June 2025, caught the eye of the Merengues according to ESPN.

An international U20 defensive midfielder with the Auriverdes, he has a profile close to that of Casemiro and Real Madrid could pay nearly 30 million euros for his services. The Merengues who see him as the ideal understudy for Aurélien Tchouaméni will have to be wary of Manchester United and Liverpool, who are also in the running according to local media.
