According to journalist Vene Casagrande (h/t Mundo Deportivo), Real Madrid will have to shell out a sum of €60 million if they wish to sign Joao Gomes from Flamengo.

Even though the Merengues have brought in Aurelien Tchouameni to replace Casemiro at the club, they are now reportedly interested in signing Brazilian enforcer Gomes from Flamengo, although they will face competition from Liverpool and Bayer Leverkusen, among others.

The 21-year-old came through the youth ranks at Flamengo and has grown into a regular in the first team, having already made over 100 appearances in which he has three goals and assists apiece.

Joao Gomes has thrived in the No. 6 role and has managed to attract the interest of several heavy-hitters from across Europe. But, signing him will be an ordeal for his suitors, including Real Madrid.

The 21-year-old is contracted with the Brazilian outfit until the summer of 2025. And as per the report, the contract consists of a mammoth €60 million release clause.

And, it is claimed that Flamengo have no intentions of negotiating a lower fee for the midfielder, meaning that clubs will have to pay the full €60 million amount in order to sign Gomes.

Real Madrid, for their part, were reportedly willing to offer as high as €40 million for the young midfield prospect. However, with Flamengo unlikely to accept a lower sum than the buyout clause, it remains to be seen if Los Blancos are prepared to shell out the required amount.

The Spanish capital outfit have not shied from splashing the cash on the likes of Vinicius Jr, Rodrygo Goes and Reinier Jesus in the past. Whether they do the same for Joao Gomes to beat Liverpool to his signing will be interesting to watch.

    Its hilarious that these clubs can still operate in massive debt. Shelling out massive fees for players. Any other business would be closed down

Real Madrid’s pursuit of 18-year-old prodigy dependent on captain’s future – report

Real Madrid will step up their efforts to sign Lille defender Leny Yoro if Nacho decides to leave the club, according to a report by Agustin Martin in AS.

The situation surrounding Nacho is becoming increasingly uncertain. While he has received a lucrative offer from Al Ittihad, the move has reportedly hit a roadblock.

It is said that Nacho feels that his role in the team has not progressed under coach Ancelotti and his absence from the starting lineup in important matches, like the first leg of the quarterfinals against Manchester City and the Clasico has made him consider leaving the club. 

Furthermore, the recoveries of Eder Militao and David Alaba, along with the presence of Antonio Rudiger and the potential return of Rafa Marin have also influenced his thoughts about his future.

Interestingly, it is not just his teammates’ presence that has made Nacho think about leaving. There are strong rumours about Real Madrid signing Leny Yoro as well. 

The plan is to sign Yoro either this summer and possibly loan him out if Nacho stays, or in 2025 to join the first team. 

If Nacho decides to leave, it would pave the way for Yoro to join immediately. This decision depends on Nacho’s willingness to stay for another year or take up one of the offers he has received. 

This means the potential signing of Yoro hinges on Nacho’s decision. If the club captain chooses to leave, Yoro could join Real Madrid this year or next. 

For what it is worth, Yoro would strengthen a defensive lineup where most players, except for Militao and possibly Rafa Marín, are over thirty years old. But for this to happen, Nacho must decide whether to stay at Real Madrid or open the door for Yoro’s arrival.
