Spanish giants have been keeping watch on teenage forward who is setting the Under-17 World Cup alight with his goals
Real Madrid have reportedly set their sights on 16-year-old Siena youth striker Souleymane Coulibaly, who is proving to be a sensation at the Under-17 World Cup with the Ivory Coast.
AS reports that Madrid scouts have been watching the starlet closely in Mexico where he scored four goals against Denmark on Thursday - three of them coming in the space of just 18 minutes.
He has been likened to his compatriot, Chelsea's Didier Drogba, a player who is still much admired by Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho. However, the forward would not get drawn on speculation regarding his future.
He told reporters: "I don't know what my future holds. I am focused on the World Cup, after that we will see what happens."
Ivory Coast take on Brazil in their final group game, with Coulibaly looking to add to his five strikes in two games thus far.
