Emerson Leao talks up Real Madrid target Tiago Luis

Santos coach Emerson Leao has sung the praises of Real Madrid target Tiago Luis.

The 18 year-old attacking midfielder is wanted by Real, with his agent Wagner Ribeiro due in Madrid today for talks.

Meanwhile, Emerson Leao declared: "Tiago Luis is very good, but he is nothing like Robinho. Tiago is a goal scorer. He is always looking for how to make goals. He is very fast and sometimes you have to stop him getting carried away, but he will be very good.

"Surely in a short time he will be in Europe."

The coach added: "He's very good and is developing. He knows how to handle the ball and is very individualistic. Playing well on the right and the left. Now we are starting again another project like four years ago and we hope that it will be just as good."
