Real Madrid’s efforts to sign Endrick have been well-documented over the past few weeks. And it appears they have succeeded in their pursuit, as multiple reports now suggest that the club are closing in on the capture of the Palmeiras whizkid.
Those reports have now been confirmed by Fabrizio Romano, who has given his ‘here we go’ for the transfer. The Italian journalist suggests that Real Madrid have reached an agreement with the player over a move to Santiago Bernabeu in 2024.
Los Blancos are willing to pay €60 million for the services of Endrick, with an additional €12 million in taxes. It would make Endrick one of the most expensive players of his age, in line with the contracts Real Madrid dished out for players such as Rodrygo and Vinicius Junior in the past.
The acquisition of Endrick could be yet another smart move by Real Madrid in the transfer market. Although the player will not join the club until 2024, it is worth pointing out that he is one of the most gifted talents in the World Cup, with many even considering him the next big thing in Brazilian football.
With Karim Benzema struggling with injuries in recent times, Endrick’s arrival in 2024 could hand Real Madrid an ideal asset for the future. The youngster, in fact, could form an all-Brazilian attacking trifecta consisting of him, Vinicius and Rodrygo.
Romano suggests Real Madrid plan to wrap up the deal soon and officiate the signing of Endrick. They are expected to sign all the documents before the end of the month, although this may not be Real Madrid’s last move in the market, especially ahead of the January transfer window where they are expected to target a few more individuals.
PSG defender could follow Kylian Mbappe to Real Madrid in the summer of 2025
As PSG brace for the departure of Kylian Mbappe, it is set to mark a before and after in the history of the French club.
All signs point towards the 25-year-old superstar signing for Real Madrid on a free transfer, with an agreement between the two parties getting closer.
And, it may so happen that another PSG star might follow Mbappe to the Santiago Bernabeu, albeit a year later in 2025.
Hakimi could return to Real Madrid
Indeed, according to Mundo Deportivo, Achraf Hakimi could opt to leave PSG in the summer of 2025 and Real Madrid would be a likely destination for the Moroccan right-back.
Hakimi, a former Real Madrid academy graduate, has enjoyed success in Paris since joining them from Inter Milan.
However, the Moroccan international will enter the final year of his contract in 2025, with the deal expiring in 2026. And, both the player and the club could opt to part ways then if a new contract is not agreed upon.
And a return to Real Madrid could be on the cards for Hakimi. He is a player very well considered by Carlo Ancelotti.
The ex-Inter Milan man would also come to reinforce the right-back position, which currently has Dani Carvajal and Lucas Lucas Vazquez, whose contract expires at the end of the season, but could be offered a one-year extension.
Furthermore, Hakimi would be keen to return to the Spanish capital and would even be willing to reduce his current salary, which is over €10 million net. The lure of playing with Mbappe, one of his closest friends, will also be a major appealing factor.
As for Real Madrid, they need to soon find a long-term heir to Carvajal and a player like Hakimi, entering his prime years and familiar with the club could prove to be a shrewd signing.
