Real Madrid join Man Utd, Liverpool in Joao Gomes transfer battle

Real Madrid are interested in Flamengo midfielder Joao Gomes.

Gomes has been likened to Manchester United midfielder and former Real star Casemiro.

ESPN says Real see Gomes as a potential replacement for his fellow Brazilian.

They’d be willing to pay €30m for the youngster.

Liverpool and Manchester United are also mentioned as suitors for the 21 year-old – and both would be prepared to outbid Real in January.
