Santos striker Rodrygo confident of warm Real Madrid welcome

Santos striker Rodrygo Goes is ready for his summer move to Real Madrid.

He has already visited the Spanish capital in December to get a feel for the city and his new team.

"I went to the stadium and saw everything," Rodrygo said in an interview with Canal de Sola of Esporte Interativo.

"When I went to the dressing room the players were leaving, but they already knew me, which was a surprise.

"I was in an elevator with [Luka] Modric and [Karim] Benzema and when we greeted them, they knew me.

"I play with them in video games and suddenly they're here and they know me."
