Real Madrid Prepares Big Bid For €200m Release Clause Wonderkid

Real Madrid has made a name for itself when it comes to acquiring young Brazilian players and moulding them into key first-team players at Santiago Bernabeu. Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo are prime examples of this. Both were signed by the Spanish club as teenagers and are now integral members of Carlo Ancelotti’s team.

In addition to these two, Real Madrid also has Vinicius Tobias, who is currently on loan at Castilla from Shakhtar Donetsk. The club has also agreed to a €60 million deal with Palmeiras to acquire Endrick in 2024.

Now, it seems that Real Madrid has set their sights on yet another Brazilian wonderkid, as they continue to build their squad with an eye on the future. The young talent in question is Flamengo midfielder Matheus Franca.

According to reports by Lance, Lyon and Real Madrid are two of the European clubs closely monitoring Franca’s development at Flamengo.

Despite being just 18 years old, Franca has made a promising start to his senior career at Flamengo. So much so that Newcastle United has already had transfer bids rejected for the Brazilian wonderkid’s signature, and he has now agreed to a new deal with his current club.

As tweeted by Fabrizio Romano, Flamengo has agreed to extend Franca’s contract after rejecting a €20 million bid, including add-ons, from Newcastle United. The new release clause will now be €200 million.

It is safe to say that this is an extraordinary figure, and it is highly unlikely that any club will be able to match it. However, this move gives Flamengo a lot of bargaining power when it comes to the transfer of Franca in the future.

Whether or not Real Madrid will make a move for Franca remains to be seen. Time will tell if the Spanish club will add yet another Brazilian prodigy to their ranks.
