Brazilian youngster Rodrygo Goes does not believe he will move to Real Madrid early as the Santos sensation prepares to join the Champions League holders in July.
Real Madrid agreed a fee reportedly in the region of €45million in June to sign 17-year-old Brazilian forward Rodrygo from Santos.
Rodrygo – who finished fourth in the Kopa Trophy standings behind winner Kylian Mbappe on Monday – celebrates his 18th birthday in January but the teenager does not expect to swap Santos for the Spanish capital before July.
“I don’t believe there is a chance I will leave for Madrid early,” Rodrygo explained in an interview with Gazeta Esportiva. “It’s agreed that I’m going in July.
“That agreement is between Santos and Real Madrid.”
