Real Madrid seal signing of Brazilian wonderkid ahead of summer window

Getting business done early

Real Madrid are said to have completed their first transfer of the summer window, with the attacking midfielder joining in the summer.

Augusto Galvan, a Brazilian 17-year-old, will turn 18 at the end of March and will then be able to move to the Spanish capital.

The player, currently plying his trade for Sao Paulo in Brazil was also subject to interest from Barcelona but Madrid have seemingly sealed a deal.

Galvan will originally join up with the Castilla side before potentially being promoted to the first-team setup.

The deal will initially cost the club €1m but could rise €3m if certain clauses are met but that will be no problem for a club such as Los Blancos.

Varane injury update

Real Madrid have announced that defender Raphaël Varane has a grade 2 muscle strain in his left hamstring.

The Frenchman could now be set for a lengthy time on the sidelines as Madrid continue to assess the damage.

Los Blancos face Villareal this Sunday as Varane will look on from the stands, as the club can go four points clear at the top.
