Spotting emerging talents before others, Real Madrid has made it a specialty in recent years on the market in Brazil. The recent examples Vinicius Jr (ex-Flamengo), Rodrygo (ex-Santos) and Reinier (ex-Flamengo) are there to prove it. Juni Calafat, merengue observer, craftsman of these three comings, has a new Brazilian promise in his sights.
According to As, the eye of Casa Blanca is interested in a certain Matheus França. This 17-year-old striker, who can evolve on the right or in the axis, is starting to make talk about him in the country, thanks to his exploits in the youth teams of Flamengo this season: 13 goals in 16 matches with the U17, 3 achievements and 2 assists in 10 appearances for the U20s.

Other European teams are also on the move, but the Madrilenians are counting on their good relationship with the Carioca club to facilitate possible negotiations. But this time again, the discussions will be close. The young man, right-handed, powerful and skilful in the zone of truth, has just extended his contract until April 2027 with a release clause that risks frightening more than one: € 100 million!
It is quite simply the biggest release clause in the history of the Brazilian club, proof that it puts a lot on the young talent. We can already imagine it becoming the biggest sale in the history of Mengão, ahead of Vinicius Jr and Lucas Paqueta, namely € 35 million. Real Madrid know what to expect. It is up to him to assess whether the game is worth the candle.
