Real Madrid is involved in Igor Gomes except for the midfielder, Sao Paulo has not obtained any formal approach. Barcelona, Sevilla, and Ajax were all linked to a bid for Gomes and Rai, São Paulo’s executive football director recognized many European teams, noticed the 21-year-old’s talent.
In recent seasons, Madrid has invested heavily in Brazilian talent learning Vinicius Junior, Rodrygo Goes, and Reinier Jesus, with Gomes’ agent Wagner Ribeiro confirming last month that he was keen to require the person to Los Blancos.
When asked whether there was anything within the ties with Madrid, Rai told Globo Esporte: “It’s real. What we will argue is Igor Gomes may be a player who is attracting the interest of European clubs. And there was no official correspondence. it’s a case during which he sparks curiosity.” “I have always spoken to European friends who have made remarks, but that’s it.
General Manager Alexandre Passaro added: “This has not been formally addressed by Real Madrid or the other team. What we do know is that Real Madrid loves and supports Igor whilst they follow many other young talents across the world, several of them inside our team. However Igor is going to be ready to acquire a Portuguese passport within the next six months, ensuring he wouldn’t be taking over a far off player spot at an EU club. But now nothing’s happening.”
Igor Gomes’ lawyer, Wagner Ribeiro, reported last month that it had been his ‘dream’ to require his client to Real Madrid. Gomes is going to be in-tuned until 2023 and features a €50 m release clause registered.
In the past, Brazil’s U-23 international, which was marketed as ‘the new Kaka,’ was linked to Barcelona, Sevilla, and Ajax due to its stunning form, despite having just a meager 31 league appearance to its credit.
The official approach from Los Blancos or any European outfit has yet to be established.
