Santos starlet Rodrygo has come over all coy when asked about reported interest from Barcelona.

There have been plenty of reports Barcelona want to sign the teenager, and that speculation looks set to increase after he bagged a hat-trick at the weekend.

Rodrygo is not having any of it though, and says he’s just thinking about Santos.

“I do not know anything about that,” he said.

“If there is anything, the people who they should be dealing with are my father and my representatives.

“I am fully focused on Santos, to continue doing my work here and at the moment, there is nothing else.”

Barcelona may find it difficult to sign Rodrygo as Santos president Jose Carlos Peres says they are still owed money from Neymar’s transfer.

Meanwhile, Real Madrid have also been linked with the Brazilian and will hope they can beat Barcelona to his signing.
