Ever since Real Madrid lost out on singing Neymar Jr. from Santos a decade ago, the Spanish giants have been looking for talent in Brazil that could become the next biggest stars. Real Madrid signed Vinicius Jr. and Rodrygo and they have been a success so far. Endrick Felipe will be joining the team next season and already looks very promising for the future. Now Real Madrid is looking for another young Brazilian, and he could become the next Marcelo. Real Madrid is interested in signing 17-year-old right-back Pedro Lima. Lima plays for Sport Club do Recife in Brasileiro Serie B but is causing lots of excitement in Brazil. He will turn 18 on July 1st, and if he were to be signed by Real Madrid this summer, the player could be hired by them next season. The issue with this player is that another club is heavily interested as well, Chelsea.
