Real Madrid’s got a new entry of the 18-year-old ‘Rodrygo’, and he is committed to perform like Neymar and Robinho. Real Madrid’s has completed a 45-million-euro ($50.3 million) deal for Rodrygo Silva de Goes in June last year but agreed to let the Brazilian striker stay at Santos for another season. He is the fifth players to join Madrid this summer, following Eden Hazard, Eder Militao, Ferland Mendy and Luka Jovic for a minimum transfer outlay to 300 million euros.
“For me it is a dream come true,” Rodrygo said at a press conference. “I have always said it is the dream of every child in Brazil and the world. I’m living a dream, it’s the happiest day of my life.” “I’m a fast striker, I score and dribble,” he said. “I’m Brazilian and we’re a bit like that, like Robinho and Neymar, I identify a little with them. “I like to play on the wings, on the left especially, but I have no preference. I’m ready to play.”
Asked if he would like either to play alongside or emulate his compatriot, Rodrygo said: “Neymar is a great player but he’s on another team and I can’t talk about him. “No, I would like to be the Rodrygo of Madrid. There is only one Neymar, there can’t be another.”
“Madrid always has the best players in the world, I know there will be a lot of competition but I am available to the club to play in the first team or for Castilla. “The pressure is there at all football clubs but here it is much higher. Vinicius told me about his experience. He told me to be patient. I’m young, I have a big future ahead of me and everything will happen naturally.”
