Sao Paulo general manager Alexandre Passaro has confirmed that Real Madrid is interested in signing Igor Gomes.
Igor Gomes, the 21yrs old football player old broke into the Sao Paulo first team last season and his performances attracted the attention of a number of Europe's top clubs, including Madrid, Barcelona, Sevilla and Ajax.
Passaro insists that there has been no official approach for the attacking midfielder so far, but confirmed that Madrid are keeping tabs on the Brazilian starlet.
Sao Paulo said there was no official approach from Real Madrid or any other club. What they do know is that Real Madrid knows and follows Igor just as they certainly follow many other young talents around the world, including in our own squad.
"He also said that due to the possibility that Igor could get a Portuguese passport in the next six months, which would mean he would not take up a foreign player spot in a European club. But there is nothing going on.
Sao Paulo's director of football Rai added tgat It is true. What he can say is that Igor Gomes is a player that is attracting the interest of European clubs. But there has been no official contact.
He further said it is a reality that he is igniting interest. He has already spoken to European friends who have made comments, but that's it.
Real Madrid have dipped into the Brazilian market on a number of occasions in recent seasons, signing the likes of Vinicius Junior, Rodrygo and Reinier Jesus.
