Real Madrid have completed the signing of Brazilian starlet Rodrigo Rodrigues, with the 18-year-old to play for the LaLiga club's 'B' team, Castilla, next season.
"It's a dream to be able to pull on the shirt of the biggest club in the world," said the forward, who moves to Madrid on a six-year deal from Gremio Novorizontino.
"I'm sure that I'm in the best place possible to develop as a player. I hope I can give the fans plenty to shout about and help the side win trophies."
In September, Novorizontino president Genilson da Rocha Santos confirmed to Diario AS that the youngster had travelled to the Spanish capital for a medical with Real, and would join Los Blancos after turning 18.
Rodrigues "one of the most talented players of his generation"
"Rodrigo is one of the most talented players of his generation in world football, and [at Real] he'll be in a set-up where he will be able to kick on even more as a footballer," said Edu Schimidt, one of Rodrigues' representatives.
