The young Brazilian player established himself with Santos in his own country before signing with Los Blancos in 2019 for almost £40 million. Since then, including the Champions League and La Liga championships, he has won seven trophies with the team.
“When my father told me the news…I often recount this tale,” he said to Goal. I had to make a decision between my two jerseys, one for Real Madrid and the other for Barça. Making a decision was extremely simple for me.
“But it was all arranged with Barcelona; I wasn’t expecting Real Madrid to show up. After a fright, it was one of my most joyful experiences in life.
Before Real defeated Al Hilal in the Club World Cup final to win the competition, Rodrygo scored in the semifinal triumph over Al Ahly. On Wednesday night, they face Elche before traveling to Osasuna at the weekend and Liverpool in the Champions League the following week. They then return to play on Thursday.
Real, who trail Barça by 11 points despite having played one fewer game, has distance to make up in the La Liga championship race, and the Liverpool match in the round of 16 will provide more opportunities to see the 2019 and 2021 UCL finals.
Despite missing in Brazil’s last year World Cup defeat to Croatia, Rodrygo claimed he would be willing to step up again for spot kicks at the club and international levels if necessary.
