Real Madrid secure first refusal for Flamengo teenager Lincoln – Onefootball

January 23, 2020

It’s no secret that Real Madrid has made buying Brazil’s brightest young talents a huge priority in recent years and could be plotting yet another move in the near-future.

According to Mundo Deportivo, Real Madrid have reached an agreement with Flamengo, securing first refusal for 19-year-old striker Lincoln.

The teenager has a £45.5m release clause in his new contract.

Flamengo must inform Real Madrid of any bid they accept for Lincoln and Los Blancos will be given the chance to match the offer.

Lincoln is a regular in Brazil’s U-20 setup, having scored four goals in 11 appearances and notably came up with an 89th-minute goal to down rivals Botafogo 1-0 last season.

In the last year-and-a-half, Real Madrid have spent well over £100m on Vinícius Júnior, Rodrygo, and Reinier.
