BARCELONA - 30 May 2018: Young Brazilian forward Rodrigo Rodrigues has joined Real Madrid on a six-year deal from Gremio Novorizontino, his representatives have confirmed.
The 18-year-old was pictured at Real Madrid’s training ground with a club shirt and will join Real Madrid Castilla, the European champions’ reserve side, next season.
“It’s a dream to wear the shirt of the best club in the world,” said Rodrigo in an Instagram post from his representatives, NG Soccer.
“I am certain that I am in the best place to grow as a player. I hope to bring a lot of happiness to the fans and win titles.”
Spanish reports confirmed the deal, subject to a medical, but the cost of the signing was not disclosed.
