Real Madrid are expected to close a deal for Brazilian superkid Pety.

The teen is regarded by many as the best young player to emerge in Brazil since Santos star Neymar.

Like Neymar, Pety has had trials at Real - but this time the Madrid giants are determined to not let this youngster slip through their hands.

Pety's agents confirmed to TMW that Cruzeiro have a "semi agreement" for the attacker, but nothing will be signed while Real remain keen.

Paco De Gracia, Real's chief scout, has been in touch with Pety's camp to register their interest.
