Speaking on The Four Amigos Podcast, journalist Mario Cortegana has claimed that Palmeiras wonderkid Endrick wants to sign for Real Madrid, amid widespread interest from several top clubs in Europe.

Endrick is a man in demand in the European market even though he is just 16 years old and will not be able to move out of Brazil for two more years.

PSG have already had a bid rejected for the Palmeiras sensation while Barcelona are also in the hunt for his signing.

However, it seems like Real Madrid are the frontrunners to sign Endrick. Previous reports have suggested that the Merengues have a very close relationship with the striker and his entourage.

Earlier today, it was claimed that Real Madrid were already planning to launch a bid for the 16-year-old in the coming days in order to ensure that they come out on top in the race for his signing.

And now, Mario Cortegana is stating that Endrick is reciprocating the interest from Real Madrid and wants to sign for the reigning champions of Spain and Europe.

Real Madrid have done a brilliant job of identifying and signing young talent from Brazil in the recent past. Vinicius Jr and Rodrygo Goes have become integral parts of the first-team setup at the Santiago Bernabeu, while there is hope for Reinier Jesus, who is currently on loan at Girona.

Juni Calafat, who helped Real Madrid clinch the signings of Vinicius and Rodrygo, is believed to have done a great job in convincing Endrick as well. Furthermore, the teenager himself has a good relationship with Vinicius, all of which have seemingly worked in favour of Los Blancos.

Endrick could now be the next Brazilian import to arrive at Real Madrid. It is claimed that club president Florentino Perez wanted to wait until next year to land the 16-year-old. But his recent development has seemingly convinced him and the Merengues to act swiftly.

Endrick recently made his first-team debut for Palmeiras and has already scored two goals and set up one more from just four matches.

    One thing I don’t like about real madrid is that..any player they make a lot of stories about ends up in another club. If the player is that good and can play for the club just go ahead and sign him.

    All the wonder kids from Brazil want to play for Real Madrid. That’s a very good omen. But what’s the fate of Vinicius Tobias now? As we’re targeting a move for RB on January, is Tobias not good enough to be promoted to the senior team?

      Tobias is loan, not purchased. It’s almost free. Be aware.

Spain midfielder credits Real Madrid assistant manager for career success

Spain’s European Championship campaign so far has been one filled with revelations. From young Lamine Yamal and Nico Williams on the wings to the ever-so-solid midfield, La Roja have impressed across the park and have taken the tournament by storm.

One such player who has played a critical role for the team despite not being in many pundits’ squad for the tournament is Fabian Ruiz. The PSG midfielder has been sensational for Luis de la Fuente’s men so far, scoring once and providing one assist in two games.

Despite not having any direct links with Real Madrid, the Spanish midfielder interestingly credits Davide Ancelotti for his success and AS brings the story.

A chapter in Naples

Fabian Ruiz may have never played for Los Blancos in his career so far, but he crossed paths with the Ancelottis in Naples a few years ago.

Ruiz signed for the Italian club from Real Betis in 2018 for a fee of €30 million. At the time, he was not known widely and was just seen as another routine Spanish midfielder aspiring to make it big.

As revealed by the player in a recent interview, however, it was Carlo Ancelotti’s son and Real Madrid assistant manager Davide Ancelotti who first saw the spark in him.

“Meeting him was a very important step in my career. From the beginning, he backed me, and it was not easy to pay what Napoli paid for me, a player who had not played much in La Liga with Betis.”

“If it weren’t for him, I wouldn’t be here. I have a very good relationship and friendship with him,” he added.

A special eye

Ruiz’s comments on Davide Ancelotti only make it clearer as to why Carlo Ancelotti holds his son’s advice in high regard. It is, after all, a testament to the tactician’s keen eye for special talent.

As revealed earlier this year, it was the manager’s son who suggested Joselu’s substitution against Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League semifinals when the team was on the brink of elimination.

What happened next was history as the veteran scored twice within minutes to turn the game around and send the Bavarians crashing out.

Davide has been rumoured to be interested in walking his own path soon as a specialist coach, but as it stands, will continue working under his father for at least one more year at Real Madrid.
