However, the current Champions League holders are yet to find a heir to the Portuguese star despite having Wales all time goals scorer Gareth Bale.

According to Tribal Football quoting Spanish news site AS reports that the 21 year-old has on the radar of Los Blancos this season, having scored 12 goals in 23 games for Flu.

He recently signed a new deal with the Brazilian top side until the summer of 2021 and now has a buyout clause of €50m on his contract with the club.

Pedro missed his first Brazil call up this week due to a knee injury suffered a fortnight ago and this means his invitation for national team assignment has been postponed.

Real would consider signing Pedro in January and loaning him to another European club for the second-half of the season.

Legit.ng earlier reported that Spanish League giants Real Madrid are eyeing a move for Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford.

Premier League side Liverpool are also considering a move for the England international during the January transfer window.

However, the striker is yet to agree a new long term deal at the club as he wants assurances from the manager he would get regular playing time.
