REAL MADRID have reportedly bagged first refusal on Flamengo wonderkid Lincoln after wrapping up a deal for teammate Reinier.
Los Blancos snapped up 18-year-old Reinier for £25.6million earlier this week.
And they are now in pole position to complete a deal for fellow Brazilian prodigy Lincoln.
Mundo Deportivo claims Zinedine Zidane’s side have agreed first refusal rights, which means they must be told if any other team makes an offer for the striker.
Lincoln has a £45.5m release clause in his contract and would be the FOURTH Brazilian youngster to join Real in the last two years.
The Spanish giants have already splashed a combined £100m on Reinier, Rodrygo and Vinicius Jr.
Should Lincoln also moved, it means Real would have a Brazilian front four who could stick together for over a decade at the Bernabeu.
It’s claimed that Real’s decision to move for them all has been fuelled by their failure to sign Neymar.
The Samba superstar opted to join Barcelona instead back in 2013.
And Real were unable to convince PSG to let Neymar leave last summer despite the forward’s desperation to quit the French capital.
Meanwhile, it’s reckoned Zidane has seen off competition from Man Utd to land Ajax ace Donny van de Beek.

Real could also be boosted by the early return of Dani Ceballos from his Arsenal loan.
The playmaker has struggled to make an impact at the Emirates and posted a cryptic message to Instagram on Wednesday.
