Real Madrid set to sign Henrique on loan - report
Real Madrid have made a bid to sign Botafogo striker Henrique on a one-year loan deal according to reports in Brazil.
Los Blancos contacted Botafogo last week with a proposal to bring the 22-year-old to the Bernabeu before the end of the month, according to UOL.
Real will initially take the Brazilian on loan, paying his full wages, before possibly taking the striker on a permanent basis.
The arrangement would be similar to the one agreed by Henrique's compatriot Casemiro last year.
The midfielder joined Real Madrid on a 12-month loan from Sao Paulo and impressed enough to be given a permanent contract in June.
Henrique has represented Brazil at both under 19 and under 20 level. He was named the best player at the 2011 under 20 World Cup in Colombia.
