Real Madrid have made quite the reputation in recent years of signing some of the best young talents from around the world and turning them into first-team stars. This is some distance away from the Galactico philosophy, but as the transfer market has developed and fees have soared, Los Blancos have continued to adapt and improvise.
The club deserve tremendous credit for the job that they have done and some of their success stories include Vinicius Jr, Rodrygo and Federico Valverde.
Now, another Brazilian sensation is being linked with a move to Real Madrid, even though he has not even made his senior debut. It is none other than Endrick. Many people have claimed that he is the biggest talent in Brazil since Neymar and his style has already earned comparisons to Ronaldo and Romario. Not bad for a 16-year-old.
Recent rumours have suggested that Barcelona are leading the race to sign him. As reported by AS, no decision has been made. Endrick shares a representation agency with Vinicius and his relationship with Rodrygo could be key as well.
Latest update on Real Madrid’s transfer chase to sign Endrick from Palmeiras
Endrick is believed to have a release clause set at around €60 million. That is a huge figure to say the least, especially for someone who has not even played senior football yet.
The hype surrounding him is based on the incredible performances that he has put in for Palmeiras at the youth level as well as for the Brazil U17 side.
But at the same time, one has to remember that a lot of players have shined at the youth level over the years only to fade away when they made it to senior football. Thus, Real Madrid must be absolutely certain about Endrick and his talent before making a move for him.
