Real Madrid close to signing €50m Brazil starlet (VIDEO)


Real Madrid have reached an agreement in principle to sign young Brazilian star Alan de Souza Guimaraes from Palmeiras.

Scheduled to join Real Castilla next summer, the Brazilian is currently at the Under-17 World Cup, and has previously turned Inter down.

Diario AS confirm that the 17-year-old – who is seen by some as the new Vinicius Junior – has a release clause of €50 million, a massive investment for the Merengues.  

The Galacticos’ attempt at signing youth is well known at this stage, but, according to AS, they want to negotiate in an attempt to avoid spending that much.


Real are reported to have met agent Juan Figger earlier this year in order to negotiate a deal.
