Real Madrid completed the signing of Brazilian wonder kid Rodrigo.
MARCA reported the deal and president of Gremio Novorizontino Genilson da Rocha Santos confirmed it and added that the attacking midfielder will sign a six-year deal.

Real Madrid needed a win and that’s precisely what they got in the home match against APOEL. Cristiano Ronaldo made his return to the starting lineup and scored Real’s first two goals while Sergio Ramos added a beautiful bicycle-kick screamer.

Mateo Kovacic suffers groin injury.
Bad luck for the Croatian midfielder, who earned a spot in the starting XI and had to be taken off during the first half. Zinedine Zidane explained that his injury doesn’t look too serious but fans and media alike will have to wait until Real Madrid release his medical report.
