Real Madrid is in the driving seat to capture the signature of Brazilian prodigy Endrick from Palmeiras after beating Tottenham and Arsenal to the race, according to Marca.
Tottenham is in the race to sign the Brazilian Under-17 international who has a €60m (£54m) release clause while Arsenal is monitoring the situation of the Brazilian ace.
Real Madrid is reported to be in the driving seat and it all seems Spurs could miss out on the signing of the attacker, Los Blancos are not new to the exploring South American market for raw talents and in recent times, Los Blancos spent £39.6m to sign Vinicius Junior when he was just 16 years of age, and also parted with £40m to bring Rodrygo Goes to the Santiago Bernabeu when he was 17 and both have been in scintillating form for the club and last season they helped Real Madrid to the Champions League and the La Liga titles.
Real Madrid is now lining up for the next big move from Brazil and a report from Spain believes that Real Madrid is confident of signing the 16-year-old as he shares an agent with Vinicius Junior.
Endrick has scored six goals in just seven Copinha appearances this term.
To shine so brightly in Under-20 football at the age of just 16 speaks volumes – we can certainly see why Gary Lineker once called him a “special” footballer.
While they are allowed to monitor Endrick at the moment, Real Madrid, Arsenal and Tottenham will not be able to sign the Brazilian wonderkid until the summer of 2024 until he is 18 years old before he can move to Europe.
