Coritiba striker Keirrison will thrive at Real Madrid, says his sports director Paulo Roberto Jamelli.

Real are keen on the young Brazilian and Jamelli told AS: "I cannot say anything about where he will go, but I'm going to comment on one thing.

"I've played in the Spanish league and I know Keirrison. I have no doubt that in Spain he will succeed because there you have quality midfielders like De la Pena or Guti.

"If in the end he joins Real Madrid, he will succeed thanks to creativity of Guti."

Jamelli played in Spain with Real Zaragoza and Almeria.
