Future Real Madrid player Rodrygo Goes scored a golazo for Santos this past weekend and talked to the press shortly after.

“I must improve, Real Madrid is the biggest club in the world and I have to improve to be at the level of their players,” said Rodrygo, who will be expected to stay in the first team next season.

“I’m already missing Brazil and I will miss it even more when I leave. I want to come back some day, I can’t promise it because you never know what will happen in the future,” added the promising attacker.

Rodrygo is still a young player and it won’t be easy for him to find relevant minutes next season, even more so if Real Madrid find a way to sign Eden Hazard away from Chelsea. However, the same was said about Vinicius a year ago and the winger ended up showcasing his talent and proving his worth, becoming a very important player for Madrid and one of the brightest spots of the season in the process.
