Brazil coach Tite admits he's been impressed by Real Madrid signing Rodrygo.
The Santos attacker is due to join Real in January when he turns 18.
And Tite revealed: "I thought of bringing him in, but he still needs to mature physically.
"He plays more than a lot, he is skillful, he plays with his head, but physically he is still not mature.
"Real Madrid has already taken him... The economic power of European football leaves us without the possibility of seeing our stars grow here in Brazil."
