Real Madrid-bound forward Endrick has expressed his love for Los Blancos once again, saying that he is set to join the greatest team in the world.

Speaking in an interview with GE Globo (h/t El Chiringuito TV), the forward said, “Real Madrid are the greatest team in the world.”

At just 17 years of age, Endrick is already a two-time Campeonato Brasileiro Serie A winner. The last one of the two was achieved last night when Palmeiras played out a 1-1 draw against Cruzeiro to finish the season with 70 points, a mere two points above second-placed Gremio.

Endrick is in exceptional form

The youngster’s opening goal against Cruzeiro was his sixth goal in his last seven outings and his performance in the final stretch of the season was truly historic as well.

He accomplished a feat not seen since Neymar in 2009 – scoring at least 10 goals in a single Brazilian league season while still under the age of 18.

Earlier in the season, Palmeiras faced a challenging period, trailing by as many as 12 points in the league standings and head coach Abel Ferreira was being cautious in allocating minutes to Endrick.

A pivotal moment occurred when Palmeiras found themselves 3-0 down against Botafogo, with Endrick’s team trailing by nine points in the title race.

In a sensational comeback, the 17-year-old scored two crucial goals, leading Palmeiras to a 4-3 victory. This marked a turning point in the team’s run, and from that moment onward, Palmeiras demonstrated resilience and determination, ultimately securing their success in the season.

Meanwhile, it is to be noted that Endrick will sign for Real Madrid in the summer of 2024 once he turns 18, but before that, he still wants to have more titles under his belt.

“Six months till Real Madrid? Yes, but I believe I have to win two more titles (Paulista & Supercopa do Brasil 2024), so I know that I have to give my everything,” he told the aforementioned outlet.

According to a report from Defensa Central, Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti is prepared to promote Castilla player Mario Martin if Dani Ceballos leaves the team this summer.

Ceballos’ future at the club is currently a hot topic and If he does decide to leave, Ancelotti has already identified Martín as his replacement.

This news came amidst the announcement of Toni Kroos’s retirement that has sent shockwaves through Real Madrid. 

Now, it is suggested that Kroos’s retirement was expected to influence Ceballos’s future at the club. 

Initially, it seemed the former Arsenal midfielder would leave, and the club was even searching for a new team for him. However, with Kroos leaving, there could be a possibility that Ceballos could have a more significant role next season.

Despite this, Real Madrid are not ruling out any possibilities. They are already considering potential replacements for Ceballos and have focused on promoting Martin, who wants to fight for a place in the first team.

It is said that the club is very pleased with his performance and there is even a chance that he could receive a surprise promotion if both Kroos and Ceballos leave, though the club does not expect Ceballos to depart.

Promoting Martin, who has been a regular part of the first-team training sessions, would be a cost-effective solution, aligning with club president Florentino Perez’s goal of minimizing spending on the midfield this season. 

It is to be noted that Martin has even had some playing time with the first team in recent weeks, indicating the club’s growing trust in his abilities.

Despite Kroos’s retirement announcement, Real Madrid does not plan to enter the transfer market for a new midfielder. The club is confident in the abilities of their current six midfielders, including the continued presence of Ceballos.

However, if Ceballos decides to leave, Madrid will look to their Castilla team for a replacement, with Martin being the top candidate.
