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.

Joao Cancelo’s loan move to Bayern Munich from Manchester City in the final days of the January transfer window came as a huge shock.

The Portuguese international signed for the Bavarian giants on a loan deal until the end of the season with a non-mandatory purchase option worth €70 million.

But, according to Fabrizio Romano, before his move to Bayern Munich, Cancelo was also offered to Real Madrid, who decided against signing any player in the January transfer window.

The Manchester City loanee has been on Los Blancos’ radars in the past, but the club made it clear that they are uninterested in signing any new players during the winter window.

As things stand, Dani Carvajal and Lucas Vazquez are Carlo Ancelotti’s options at right-back, but there are concerns over their fitness and longevity.

But, as things stand, Real Madrid have no plans to sign a new right-back in the summer as they have full faith in both Carvajal and Vazquez.

Furthermore, Romano adds that the Merengues believe that they have a top right-back for the future in the form of Vinicius Tobias.

The teenage Brazilian joined the club in April last year from Shakhtar Donetsk on loan with a purchase option. He has been earning rave reviews for his performances for Real Madrid’s Castilla outfit under Raul Gonzalez.

So, there is a good chance that the Spanish and European champions will sign Tobias permanently.

All these factors seemingly compelled them against making a move for Cancelo when he was offered to the club last month. The Portuguese international has already made his debut for Bayern Munich and registered an assist on his debut.

Whether they decide to sign him permanently for €70 million in the summer remains to be seen. As for Real Madrid, though, there do not seem to be any imminent plans to reinforce the right-back position.
