Rodrygo Goes admits nerves moving to Real Madrid

Rodrygo Goes admits there's some apprehension moving to Real Madrid.

The striker will leave Santos for Real next month.

"Going to Real Madrid motivates me, as they are one of the biggest clubs in the world," he told Santos TV.

"Because of their greatness that can scare you, but that fear is good as it motivates me more and it forces me to show why they believed in and signed me.

"It helps me a lot to know that Vinicius is there, a boy practically my age, as he's only a year older than me.

"He already has the experience of having played one year there and I think he will help me a lot.

"That's very important, as well as having the other Brazilians.

"That is always good because the language isn't so difficult to understand, but having others beside you who speak your language is important and will help me a lot in my adaptation process."
