Real Madrid are home to some of the best Brazilian footballers right now. Vinicius Junior is arguably the next face of Selecao with Neymar in the twilight of his career. Rodrygo has been in the form of his life recently as well after a tough start to the season. Eder Militao is out injured but when fit and available, he is a regular starter. And Endrick, who will arrive in the Spanish capital next summer, has earned comparisons with the great Ronaldo Nazario, who also played for Los Blancos.

Thus, it is only natural for Real Madrid to be one of the most popular European clubs in Brazil. But so are FC Barcelona.

The likes of Ronaldinho, Neymar, Rivaldo, Romario, Ronaldo and several other Brazilian icons have represented Barcelona over the years. Vitor Roque is set to arrive at the club soon as well.

Another Brazilian youngster who has been making a lot of waves lately is Andre of Fluminense. He is a part of the national team setup already and it seems like only a matter of time before the midfielder gets a big move to Europe.

When comes to the two El Clasico rivals, Andre has a clear pick. As reported by SPORT, the Brazilian midfielder said:

"Barça or Madrid? They are two great clubs, but I would choose Barça."

It is not Spain but England that looks like Andre's most likely destination when he leaves Fluminense. He was heavily linked with a move to Liverpool in the summer but remained in Brazil. Since then, several other Premier League clubs have been rumoured with an interest in the rising midfielder as well.

Could Andre end up playing for either Real Madrid or Barcelona someday? Who knows. At 22 years of age, the Brazilian cannot be considered a wonderkid but he has been on a meteoric rise over the past couple of years. The sky is the limit.
