The new Real Madrid signing was presented to the media and fans today, as he hopes to grow in the Spanish La Liga tournament.

Real Madrid has completed the signing of 18-year-old wonderkid Rodrygo from Brazil’s Santos.

The youngster signed last year on a €45 million deal and played one full season in his native country before traveling to Spain.

Today he was presented to the press and fans and explained what they could expect from him.

“I am a fast forward, I score and make plays, I’m Brazilian and that’s how we are, like Robinho, Neymar… I identify a bit with them,” Rodrygo was quoted by ESPN.

“Madrid will always have the best players in the world and I’m ready to do whatever the club wants, to play in the first team or Castilla.”

“Here the pressure is bigger than anywhere else and Vinicius has told me that I have to be patient,” he added.

“But I’m young and I will be. Things are going to develop naturally.”

“I’m in my first season in Europe and there might be difficult moments but I’m prepared for that and I’m sure I’m going to have a lot of happy moments,” he concluded.
