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.

There is no secret that Real Madrid might consider a move for a new striker in the coming summer. With Karim Benzema slowly nearing the end of his career, the club are looking for a viable alternative ahead of the new season.

Carlo Ancelotti has been left impressed by the performances of Rodrygo in the centre forward position. But the club could still use the services of a more recognised option in the number nine position.

The Spanish giants are reportedly assessing La Liga for a potential low-cost option. But they are also open to looking through in other leagues, in their bid to add more depth in the attacking department.

To that end, Fabrizio Romano claims Real Madrid are eyeing a swoop for Roberto Firmino. The Liverpool star has become the latest player to be shortlisted by Los Blancos, with his current contract at Liverpool expiring at the end of the season.

Formerly of TSG Hoffenheim, Firmino has a stellar track record of performing in Europe. He has scored 110 goals in 361 competitive matches during his time at Liverpool, winning the Premier League and the Champions League title.

A centre forward by trade, Roberto is known for his tactical flexibility and the ability to shift into wider areas to build up the player.

It makes him an appealing target for Real Madrid, who would prefer a versatile striker in their ranks that can not only provide cover for Benzema but also the likes of Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo.

Real Madrid, though, are yet to hold any discussions with Roberto Firmino just yet. He has just been added to the list of targets and one would expect the Spanish giants to make a move once the season is over and the player becomes a free agent.
