The Spanish giants have a history of signing young talent from Brazil, so it comes as no surprise that Real Madrid is interested in Marcos Leonardo, a young star striker for Santos FC.
Rumors of potential Real Madrid signings have been circulating, and after the agent of Erling Haaland was seen at the Bernabéu, it was confirmed that Fernando Brito, the agent of Marcos Leonardo, was also seen at the Madrid match, which has sparked speculation of a possible signing.
Marcos Leonardo, a young Brazilian center forward who currently plays for Santos FC, is one of the current stars of the Brazilian league. The player is only 20 years old and has already stood out for his great sporting level in Brazil. Therefore, it is not surprising that Madrid is interested in signing him in order to have a new star striker on the team.
It is worth noting that Marcos Leonardo’s numbers are impressive. At the league level, he has played in 26 games and has scored 13 goals and two assists, making him the third top scorer in the Brazilian league.
Diario Sport reports that the player’s agent was at the Bernabéu exploring possibilities with Real Madrid, as the Spanish giants are interested in keeping an eye on him to analyze his possible signing. Although the player has a contract with Santos until 2026, he could enter Madrid’s future plans for approximately 17 million euros.
Although Real Madrid has said that it will not make any major moves during the winter, the signing of Leonardo fits with the Madrid trend of signing talent from Brazilian football. Additionally, if no agreement is reached during the winter, it could be a good option for the summer.
