|Real Madrid Set To Sign Rising Star Rodrigo Rodrigues by samsonslide: 3:00pm On Sep 14|
Real Madrid are expected to complete the signing of 17-year-old Rodrigo Rodrigues from Novorizontino, the club’s president has confirmed.
The youngster is said to have travelled to Valdebebas to undergo a medical on Thursday and will sign a six-year deal with the Spanish and European champions.
The attacking player is set to join the Castilla B team in 2018.
“Rodrigo is in Madrid having a medical and, if there is nothing untoward, he’ll sign with the club for six seasons,” Genilson da Rocha Santos told AS.
“Rodrigo is a complete forward, who can play out wide or in the middle. He’s very quick, explosive and he’s developed a lot since he started here at Novorizontino at the age of 14.
“We’re proud to see him shine in a European tournament and to see a club like Real Madrid become interested in him.”
Madrid’s interest was reportedly sparked when scouts watched Rodrigo in an Under-17 Club World Cup tournament in the city.
If the deal is finalised, he will join compatriot Vinicius Junior in moving to the Santiago Bernabeu next year after he turns 18, which is the minimum age required for an international transfer of this kind.

THE BEST PLAYER IN THE WORLD
CASE FOR LIONEL MESSI
When we all hear the name Lionel Messi, what comes to our mind is that 5ft7 dude, with the most mesmerising left foot ever seen and a host of awards and personal achievements (including 5 balon d'ors). The debate for who is the world's best player raging on in the past 11 years, this is because two footballers have 'duopolized' it. They are Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. As a matter of fact, the last time any other player won it apart from them was Kaka in 2007. Since then, it has been a tug of war with Messi being narrowly on top, at least for the next few months. Messi has 5 balon d'ors while Ronaldo has 4. However, Ronaldo is widely tipped to pip Messi to this year's prize. Messi and Ronaldo continue to divide fans, coaches and fellow players alike, at the same time they continue to draw pundits from every angle for the consistency and brilliance. However, one baffling issue is that we can not say for sure who is out rightly better. Year after year they continue to set and break records while making other footballers look silly on the pitch (ask Boateng about Messi and do the same to Pique about Ronaldo). So what we at grass sports want to do now is to present a case why Messi is should be considered as the best.
