Real Madrid forward Rodrygo Goes admits speaking with Pele before leaving Santos last year.

Prior to leaving Brazil for Real Madrid, the winger revealed that he spoke to Pele at his home.

"Cristiano [Ronaldo] and Neymar are sources of inspiration, they're two players I'm a big fan of," Rodrygo told DAZN.

"Pele, Neymar and Robinho mean a lot to me and to my favourite team, too, which is Santos.

"Neymar was the one I followed most, but thank God I had the opportunity to meet all three of them.

"Even before I came to Madrid, I went to Pele's house and received his blessing before I left."
