Spanish and European giants Real Madrid are set to raid Chicago Fire FC for goalkeeper Gabriel Slonina this summer according to multiple reports.

The 18-year-old homegrown goalie has been phenomenal for the Chicago Fire, keeping five clean sheets in the ongoing MLS.

"Gaga", who committed his international future to the USMNT, has been one of the brightest prospects for the Fire despite the team languishing at the bottom of Major League Soccer.

At 17, Slonina became the youngest goalkeeper in MLS history to keep a clean sheet for his team against New York City FC. He made four saves in the game.

The European Champions Real Madrid are known for signing top soccer talents in the world, and a move for "Gaga" will be no surprise after his impressive outings.

Should the move materialize, Slonina will join a number of USMNT players in Europe. Notably, he would join Christian Pulisic of Chelsea Fame, Gio Reyna of Dortmund, Sergio Dest of Barcelona, and Zack Steffen of Manchester City Fame.
