While Kylian Mbappe is currently basking in the spotlight following his official transfer to Real Madrid, it must not be forgotten that another talented forward, Endrick, is joining the club’s roster this summer.

After bidding the Palmeiras fans farewell in what was an incredibly emotional outing for the youngster, he will soon participate with his national team Brazil in Copa America before he arrives at Real Madrid.

How much joining Real Madrid means to him

The 17-year-old sensation is expected to be with Real Madrid in the pre-season squad for Real Madrid. Endrick exclaimed that signing with Real Madrid was a dream come true.

“I’m going to make a dream come true and I hope God goes with me,” Endrick stated, via AS.

Even though competition in the front line is anticipated to be fierce, especially following Mbappe’s arrival, Endrick is intent on fighting for a spot.

On the upcoming Copa America

Endrick has been named in the Brazil squad for Copa America, only a few months after he made his first-team debut for Selecao.

“Very happy to play my first tournament with Brazil. We will try to win the title and train hard to achieve it,” he remarked on being in the squad for Copa America.

Brazil will have a point to prove considering Argentina are the reigning Copa America champions. Endrick shed light on the difficult opponents Brazil are set to encounter but claimed his team is ready to give it their all.

“We know that there are high-level teams and that it is going to be a very difficult championship, but we will not lack desire and dedication to win the title.”

Despite having already broken a few national and international records at the tender age of 17, the player is concentrated on making an impact on the field.

“I don’t see those things about breaking records, I try to help my team and my teammates,” he claimed.

In the previous international break, Endrick dropped jaws by making an immediate impression with the Selecao, scoring on his debut against England and then against Spain at Real Madrid’s home stadium, the Santiago Bernabeu.

Touching upon those two goals, he said, “I thank God for having scored two goals in my first games with Dorival and I hope to continue helping the national team, whether by scoring or otherwise.”

Real Madrid face Premier League, Saudi Arabia competition for free transfer target

Real Madrid are set to welcome two new stars this summer, Kylian Mbappe and Endrick, but the Merengues are keen on further bolstering their squad.

Owing to the embarrassment of riches Real Madrid possess in midfield, replacing Toni Kroos with a new signing in midfield is not seen as an immediate priority.

Nonetheless, interesting opportunities will invariably be evaluated closely and it appears the name of Adrien Rabiot has entered the club’s crosshairs.

Real Madrid not the only ones interested

But, according to Gazzetta dello Sport, Real Madrid face stiff competition from Premier League clubs and Saudi Arabian teams in their pursuit of midfielder Adrien Rabiot.

The French midfielder is set to become a free agent if he chooses not to renew his contract with Juventus, a decision that seems increasingly likely.

Known for his technical prowess and versatility, Rabiot excels at playing multiple roles in midfield and notably thriving as a goal threat with late runs inside the opposition box that tend to catch opponents off guard.

While Real Madrid have no shortage of quality in midfield, Dani Ceballos’ exit could pave the way for the 29-year-old to secure a signing for Los Blancos.

However, Real Madrid would have to outmanoeuvre both the financial prowess of Saudi Arabian teams and the competitive allure of Premier League clubs to secure Rabiot’s signature.

On top of that, Juventus are also not giving up on their efforts to try and renew the contract of the French international.

In any case, Rabiot is unlikely to be a priority target for the club but they will be sure to keep a close eye on how his situation develops.
