Real Madrid could make a move to sign highly-rated Brazil under-20 striker Matheus Nascimento, according to media reports in the South American country.
The 18-year-old is viewed by the European and Spanish champions as a future No. 9, though he would likely begin his time at the Bernabeu with the B team, news outlet Globo Esporte reported on Thursday.
It added that Botafogo are currently in talks to extend the 18-year-old’s contract, which currently runs until June next year.
Matheus has made 36 first-team appearances across all competitions and scored eight goals since being promoted from Botafogo’s youth academy in 2020.
He has netted three times in as many matches for Brazil’s U-20 team this year.
