Real Madrid is contemplating an offer to sign Endrick, a 15-year-old Brazilian prodigy and attacking phenom who has caught the attention of the world’s media.
As reported by the Spanish website Defensa Central, Endrick is beginning to emerge as a key target for Real Madrid. They want to improve their youth ranks to be a European threat once again in the future seasons. The Spanish giants are preparing a bid for the 15-year-old Palmeiras wonder kid. He is also a target for Barcelona and Manchester City, according to reports.
With the adolescent prodigy scoring goals for pleasure in youth-level games in his own nation, Endrick has become the latest Brazilian star to get on the radar of big teams around Europe. Although he is just 15, the Palmeiras starlet has a remarkable scoring record. He has scored a tally of 167 goals in 170 outings in the under-15s football.
Endrick is gaining prominence
In recent weeks, the teenager has gained attention after making his professional debut in the Copa Sao Paulo. It is the most renowned Under-20s competition in Brazilian football. Endrick’s talents in youth football have not gone unnoticed. Some of the most high-profile teams in Europe, including Real Madrid, expressed an interest in signing the youngster.
The Spanish giants are well-known for their incursions into the Brazilian market. They are always in search of the most promising young talents the nation has to offer. Real Madrid first-team regulars, Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo Goes have benefited from such a perspective in recent years. The former, in particular, has taken European football by storm in recent seasons.
They have associated well with Brazilian wonder kids in recent years. Some of the names include the likes of Matheus Nascimento and Endrick. The latter is now emerging as a player on their radar as a result of this association. Even though Real Madrid will not be allowed to sign him until he is 16 years old, they are putting in place the necessary steps to obtain his services. An offer to sign him is being drafted now.
Will Real Madrid be able to shrug off the competition for the Brazilian prodigy?
Aside from Real Madrid, Manchester City and Barcelona want to sign the 15-year-old Brazilian offensive phenom from Palmeiras. The Blaugrana, just like Real Madrid, wants to make a €45m bid to pry him away from his club. Real Madrid will have to be on their toes in their chase of Endrick if they want to sign him as soon as possible.
It is Juni Calafat, Real Madrid’s top scout, who has recommended Endrick to Florentino Perez. Juni Calafat has been in charge of sending the profiles of Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo Goes to Florentino Perez in the past. However, the value of the proposed offer is uncertain. It will be seen if this is sufficient for them to beat Barcelona and sign Endrick.
