Real Madrid’s Victory Over Manchester City Rodrygo Could Have Signed for Barcelona – Why Didn’t He?

Barcelona had their eye on Rodrygo Goes long before Real Madrid became aware of his talent, according to Sport.

With Oscar Grau leading the delegation to Brazil, the Blaugrana pressed Santos in 2017 to sign a contract that would make them the only club able to sign Rodrygo when he reached the age of 18.

Florentino Perez and Real Madrid, on the other hand, swooped in and offered more money, which Barcelona couldn’t match at the time.

They were willing to pay €20 million up front, as well as €20 million in installments and bonuses.

So, even though Santos would have preferred Rodrygo to join Barca, they were forced to sell to whites with more money to spend.

Rodrygo demonstrated his talent on Wednesday, coming off the bench to score two goals and help Real Madrid defeat Manchester City 3-1 in the Champions League semi-finals.
