Real Madrid is expected to sign Brazilian Mateus Cardoso, known as “Tete”, midfielder Shakhtar Donetsk of Ukraine.

The 20-year-old Tete has participated in the two matches Shakhtar won against the Merengues in the Champions League group stage this season.

According to what was found by the Spanish site “Difensa Central”, the Spanish capital club is interested in obtaining the services of Tete, in light of the good standards it offers despite his early age, but he has not made any offers to join him so far.

The site indicated that Shakhtar had set 17 million euros in order to agree to the departure of Tete, whether for Real Madrid or any other club.

The same site also explained that the player also attracted Pep Guardiola’s attention, the Manchester City coach, who believes that Cardoso’s playing style is similar to his compatriot Fernandinho.

Therefore, Real Madrid’s unannounced interest so far, and Guardiola’s admiration, will soon pave the way if the two sides publicly reveal their intention to open the door to contracting the player into a struggle between Real and Guardiola to convince the promising young man.
