Rodrygo unveils the steps he took to secure his signing with Real Madrid: ‘Prepare to play alongside Messi!’

In a revealing account, Rodrygo Goes has disclosed that he was on the brink of joining Barcelona before making the pivotal decision to sign with Real Madrid in 2019. Recalling the decisive moment, Rodrygo shared the intriguing journey that ultimately led him to don the white jersey.

“Virtually everything was in place with Barcelona; we were on the cusp of signing,” Rodrygo recounted, shedding light on the near-Blaugrana affiliation.

“I turned to my dad and asked, ‘Is there no interest from Real Madrid?’ At that point, there was no communication. I suggested waiting until the weekend due to an impending match. I thought to myself, ‘I’ll put on a stellar performance, and Real Madrid will take notice.'”

Rodrygo’s father expressed frustration at his son’s proposition. “Are you serious?” he retorted. “We have an offer from Barcelona, and you’re suggesting we wait? You could play alongside Messi!” However, Rodrygo persisted and requested the wait.

He elaborated on the pivotal match that followed: “During the game, Real Madrid called my father. The very next day, he left without saying a word.”

Upon his return, Rodrygo’s father entered his room with a Real Madrid and a Barcelona shirt in hand. The moment of reckoning had arrived. “Choose,” his father directed.

Rodrygo revealed the outcome without hesitation: “I didn’t need to think twice; my decision was clear—it was Real Madrid.”

Real Madrid gladly invested €40 million in the 18-year-old prodigy, a move that has since proven to be transformative. Rodrygo’s trajectory has seen him establish himself as a formidable presence within Real Madrid’s ranks, earning his first Champions League trophy with the club. The tale of his near-alignment with Barcelona adds an intriguing layer to his journey, showcasing the pivotal moments that shape a player’s destiny.
