Real Madrid have already found the new Casemiro

Real Madrid are looking to add €30m-rated Flamengo midfielder João Gomes to their ranks

Real Madrid’s recent policy of scouring the South American market in search of the stars of tomorrow has paid off over the past decade, with players like Rodrygo, Vinicius and Casemiro all arriving at the Bernabéu and taking their place in the first team. Today, Madrid have set their sights on a new Brazilian star, Flamengo midfielder João Gomes, seen as Casemiro’s natural heir. Several European clubs are also keeping tabs on the 21-year-old, including Liverpool and Manchester United, who have secured Casemiro’s services over the summer period.

According to ESPN’s Martín Liberman, Madrid have a certain advantage over other interested clubs and have already started talks over Gomes, although it is not yet clear whether the Bernabéu board will make their choice in January. or next summer. “I have information that he is very close to Real Madrid, who would pay 30 million euros for him,” the Argentinian journalist posted on his Twitter account.

Flamengo have known for some time that their young star is attracting interest from across Europe and therefore decided to offer Gomes a new contract last week. Initially, the defensive midfielder’s contract ran until 2025 with a minimum release clause of 10 million euros. After the renewal, he is now under contract with the Brazilian club until 2027 and with a release clause increased to 30 million euros.
