Real Madrid have been relatively quiet in recent transfer windows. This summer is the perfect example. While they did sign Aurelien Tchouameni on a big money move and brought in Antonio Rudiger on a free transfer, the likes of Casemiro, Marcelo, Gareth Bale and Isco departed the club after long and successful runs with them.
The picture has been very different at Chelsea. They have had a change in ownership recently and splashed out in the summer. But then, just days after the summer transfer window closed, they made the confusing decision of sacking Champions League-winning manager, Thomas Tuchel and replacing him with Graham Potter, who had been managing Brighton & Hove Albion before that. And at the moment, the Blues seem to be in trouble when it comes to their top four hopes.
Chelsea and Real Madrid find themselves in a transfer race to sign Endrick from Palmeiras though, as do PSG.
As tweeted out by Fabrizio Romano, Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea are the three clubs that are pushing hard to sign Endrick, and they are ahead of all the other clubs in the race for the Brazilian wonderkid.
Chelsea, Real Madrid and PSG are leading the race to sign Endrick
Endrick is believed to have a release clause of around €60 million in his current deal with Palmeiras but it is believed that the Brazilian club would be open to letting him leave for a transfer fee around €40 million.
Still just 16 years of age, there were some question marks over whether Endrick would be able to perform in senior football or not after putting up incredible numbers at the youth level.
It has not taken the Brazilian wonderkid long to answer the doubters. According to stats from Transfermarkt, he has scored 3 goals and provided an assist in 5 appearances and 180 minutes of action for Palmeiras until now.
He is also being hyped up as the biggest talent to come out of Brazilian football since Neymar. So it is not hard to understand why there is so much interest surrounding him already.
