After Vinicius Junior, Rodrygo is the second young Brazilian winger that has been signed by Real Madrid for a massive 45M fee. He is seen as one of the biggest talents of his generation in real life football, but how good can he become in FM19?
Because of his fixed transfer to Real Madrid in the summer of 2019, Rodrygo Goes is unavailable for a transfer during the first season. But after he has completed his transfer to Spain, he could become available at some point. At first he will be available on loan (in 2 out of 3 soaks we did he left Madrid on a two-year loan spell), later on he could make a full transfer. Fee should be somewhere between 90M to 100M.
Rodrygo is a natural left winger, but could also play as a striker. Considering his height, we would not position him as a lone striker up front. It could work though if you post him as a secondary striker in a 4-4-2 or 3-5-2. However, we would advise you to post him as a left winger.
Being a right-footed left winger, he has written Inside Forward all over him. Just make sure to have him use his best features: dribbling and speed.
