Who will Endrick sign for? That is the question on the lips of a lot of football fans around the world at the moment. The Brazilian wonderkid is being hyped up as the biggest talent to come out of the country since Neymar Jr while already earning comparisons with Ronaldo Nazario at 16 years of age.

It is only recently that Endrick took his first steps in senior football and they have been very positive ones. According to stats from Transfermarkt, he has scored 3 goals and provided an assist in 7 appearances, while having played 306 minutes in total.

That is an excellent return for most players in the world, and especially so, when you consider that Endrick is still just 16 years of age.

Thus, there is a lot of excitement around where Endrick will end up, even though he cannot leave Brazil before 2024. Real Madrid are one of the club’s that his entourage are definitely considering though. As tweeted out by Fabrizio Romano, his father told UOL Esporte:

"“We’ll travel to Madrid at the end of this month.“After that conversation, Real Madrid will await a response from us to see if they should come and make a bid to Palmeiras.”"
