EXCLUSIVE NEWS: live from Fabrizio Romano Real Madrid C.F. set eyes on another target after failing out on Kylian Mbappe due to financial reasons he is Santos striker already making wave for himself and has the traits similar to Aguero.

The competition for the top young offensive players is becoming more intense due to the expansion of football scouting and the skill of agents in spreading the word to the appropriate parties about the newest, brightest forwards. Specifically, that race usually concludes in Brazil.


Many suitors are interested in Santos attacker Marcos Leonardo, 20, who is the most recent player to be predicted to cross the Atlantic. Sevilla was first interested, but it appears that they may be priced out given the €20 million price tag that was quoted for a January or July transfer.

Leonardo has been linked to Real Madrid, West Ham, and Newcastle United in recent times. His agents were reportedly spotted at the Santiago Bernabeu. Despite his youth, he has made 162 appearances, contributing 11 assists and 54 goals.

“There is a kind of Aguero-type striker there, he is not particularly tall but comes alive in the penalty box and I think there is talent there as well. He needs to be supplied. I remember seeing him last year, I was really, really looking forward to seeing him but he had an absolute mare.”

“Everything he did outside the box fell to pieces but I like him a lot, inside the penalty box. He has got that ability in tight spaces, that kind of Aguero or Romario-type ability.”

“You wonder if he would make an immediate impact at West Ham, I probably doubt it, but he is one for the long haul.”
