Real Madrid’s strategy of chasing young Brazilian talents has fared well in recent years. Rodrygo Goes, Vinicius Jr, and Eder Militao have all quickly become key members in Carlo Ancelotti’s side purely through merit.

It is not surprising that Los Blancos are looking to continue with the formula that has worked wonders so far. Of the many gems in the streets of Brazil, the club were last said to be pursuing the signing of young Endrick.

According to reports from Joaquim Piera, Barcelona are working hard behind the scenes to swoop in for the youngster’s services. This comes as vital information for Real Madrid’s transfer plans.

It is interesting to note that the teenager is yet to make his senior debut for a club. However, his performances at the youth level have been so impressive that European giants already have the 15-year-old on their transfer lists.

The Palmeiras player renewed his deal with the Brazilian club last month. His new contract runs until 2025, when he will turn 19. It is important to note that Brazilians cannot play in Europe until they are 18 years of age, according to FIFA regulations.

It is difficult to imagine Los Blancos letting go of such a highly-rated player. However, a lot will depend on the economics of the deal. It is said that the teenager’s current deal has a €60 million release clause that is activated when he turns 18.

After seeing the success of his compatriots like Vinicius and Rodrygo, it would not be surprising if Endrick opts to join Real Madrid over Barcelona.

Nevertheless, there is a long time before the youngster is compelled to choose his next club and one can expect conflicting reports until the deal is signed.
