Real Madrid have joined the race for Roma target Marcos Leonardo of Santos.

The Brazilian attacker has reportedly become a transfer target for Carlo Ancelotti’s club ahead of the January window.

After being linked with a move to Roma in the summer, the 20-year-old forward is now aspiring to play on some of Europe’s biggest stages including Real Madrid’s.

According to Corriere dello Sport, Real’s interest in Leonardo is concrete as the Spanish giants already made contact for him in recent weeks.

Real Madrid are reportedly tempted to form an attacking trio of Rodrygo, Vinicius Jr. and Leonardo himself.

The attacker’s agent, Rafaela Pimenta, is expected to take into considerations only offers from Europe’s top sides.
