Having gotten their hands on jewels such as Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo Goes from the Brazilian market in recent years, Real Madrid have all but landed another young prodigy in the form of Endrick Felipe.

Indeed, the 16-year-old Palmeiras wonderkid is on the verge of signing for Real Madrid, as confirmed by Fabrizio Romano.

The overall cost of the deal is likely to be in excess of €70 million, with Los Blancos matching the teenage forward’s €60 million release clause while the remaining is being paid as tax commissions.

One of the brightest young talents in Brazil, Endrick has been making waves at the youth level for a while now. He burst into the limelight after his displays at the Copinha tournament and soon made a mark at the first-team level too.

With a deal for Endrick all but done, GE Globo is now reporting that Real Madrid and Palmeiras hope to make the transfer official by the end of the FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar.

The quadrennial tournament will come to an end on December 18, when the final will be played at the Lusail Stadium, where one of France, Morocco, Croatia and Argentina will be crowned the champions of the world.

And, as per the report, Endrick’s signing from Palmeiras to Real Madrid could be made official before that.

While the transfer could be officially announced, the teenage sensation will only be able to arrive at Real Madrid in 2024, when he turns 18.

Endrick had been attracting strong interest from several other clubs like PSG, Chelsea, and even Barcelona. But, in the end, Real Madrid prevailed in the race for his signing and an official confirmation of the same could arrive in the coming week.

Real Madrid will offer a three-year deal to midfielder, but player wants assurances over role

Dani Ceballos is one of seven Real Madrid players who is set to become a free agent in the summer as his contract expires at the end of the season.

The 26-year-old has grown in prominence at the Santiago Bernabeu in the second half of the season and has insisted that he wishes to continue at the club beyond the current campaign. However, he is yet to be contacted by the club with an offer to renew him.

Now, though, Tomas Gonzalez-Martin is reporting that Real Madrid do indeed want to keep hold of Ceballos beyond the summer and are planning to offer him a three-year contract.

The Spanish international prioritises continuing at the Santiago Bernabeu and will happily sign a renewal as long as he is offered a more prominent role in the team.

Ceballos reportedly fears that he would be reduced to the role of a benchwarmer should Jude Bellingham arrive at Real Madrid in the summer, especially with the club likely to renew Toni Kroos and Luka Modric as well.

Hence, the 26-year-old wants to be assured about his role in the team before he commits his future to Real Madrid.

As for the offer itself, Los Blancos have not presented a formal proposal as of yet and will only do so at the end of the season.

It should give ample time for Ceballos to get proper clarity over his situation and make an informed decision on continuing at Real Madrid or looking at a new challenge elsewhere.

Should he decide to move on, it is believed that the former Real Betis ace has several offers from important clubs across Europe.
