Real Madrid have agreed a deal to sign highly-rated Brazilian midfielder Rodrigo Antonio Rodrigues from Gremio Novorizontino, say reports in Spain.

An agreement with the Novo Horizante-based side has been reached, according to a report in Marca, with the 17-year-old midfielder set to undergo a medical and sign a contract with Madrid.

The attacking midfielder won’t move to play for Los Blancos until the summer of 2018 – when he turns 18 – and is expected to form a part of their Castilla side.

Rodrigo is said to have come to the attention of officials at the Bernabeu after he starred in the Under-17 Club World Cup in the Spanish capital.

He made his competitive club debut in March 2017.
