Real Madrid are reportedly closely monitoring the performances of defender, Leo Santos for his Brazilian club, Corinthians in recent times.
And that is with a view of Los Blancos going ahead to land the signature of the young defensive ace.
Santos who is presently at the young age of 19 has only recently broken into the senior team at Corinthians.
And a whole lot of football pundits and followers alike in Brazil highly regard the teenager as one to watch.
The defender will see his existing deal with the club run out in the summer of the year 2020, however.
And according to a concrete report emanating from Marca, Madrid are keeping a close eye on the development of Santos.
That is particularly with the view on the part of the Spanish La Liga giants towards signing him in future.
Santos is also a five-time Brazilian Under-20 international who has played 14 games in every competition for Corinthians this season.
Madrid want end to terrible run of results
As for the Galacticos, though, the reigning European champions have faced a whole lot criticism in the past few weeks.
And that is in the wake of Madrid embarking on a run of four matches without victory in all competitions.
