Real Madrid have made a quite a reputation for themselves when it comes to developing young players into superstars. The prime examples of such are Vinicius Jr, Federico Valverde and Rodrygo, all of whom arrived in the Spanish capital when they were teenagers and have gone to establish themselves in the starting XI of the best club in the world.

Another club who have done very well in that respect though is Chelsea. Mason Mount and Reece James, who came through their academy have gone on to become Champions League winners at the club, while the likes of Tammy Abraham and Fikayo Tomori have proven themselves as top players since leaving Stamford Bridge.

Both clubs seem to be in the race for the brightest wonderkid in football right now in the form of Endrick, who is being hyped as the biggest talent to come out of Brazilian football since Neymar. PSG are also in the race as well.

As reported by ESPN, Palmeiras have turned down a €45 million transfer offer from PSG already, although the French club might be ready to meet his €60 million release clause. Chelsea are believed to be ready to do the same though. And it is believed that Endrick prefers the London club and wants to play in the Premier League after leaving Brazil.

It is safe to say that that is a huge amount of money to shell out for a player who has only played six senior games in his career till now but that is the reality of the football transfer market today.

Chelsea and PSG being ready to meet Endrick’s €60 million release clause might spell the end of Real Madrid’s interest in the player.

There have been suggestions in recent weeks that Real Madrid are not willing to go that high and also that they are not willing to enter a bidding war for Endrick, and will instead depend on the player’s willingness to come to the Spanish giants.
