The 23-year-old, who plays for Internacional, was strongly linked with Premier League duo Tottenham and Manchester City during the summer.

And although he is happy in Brazil for now, he has hinted that Madrid would be his preferred long-term destination.

He told UOL: “Every footballer dreams of playing at a club such as Real Madrid, but I am only 23 and there is plenty of time to take that step forward.

“Now is not the moment to be thinking of playing in Europe, I just want to continue improving and scoring goals.

“I have a contract with Porto Alegre, I love it here and do not feel the need to move away right now, although it is obvious that the day will come when I will leave Brazil to go and play in Europe.”
