There is no doubt Endrick is the man in demand in Brazil, having made a stunning impression with his performances in the youth division of domestic football.

He has also recently earned his breakthrough in professional football at the age of just 16. His performances have not gone unnoticed either, with a number of European giants keen on acquiring his services.

Real Madrid are among the club keeping close track of his development at Palmeiras. But according to Endrick’s father, Douglas Ramos, the Spanish giants are yet to make an official move for the player.

Douglas claims that Paris Saint-Germain have been the only club to have made an official proposal for the player. He hinted the French team could be leading the chase, as other clubs are yet to make a concrete offer.

“Paris Saint-Germain are the only club that opened negotiations with Palmeiras with an official proposal, as things stand,” said Douglas (h/t Fabrizio Romano), who is thought to be playing a key role in helping his son decide his future.

Aged only 16, Endrick has racked up three goals and one assist in seven competitive matches for Palmeiras. Reports suggest the player could cost up to €60 million for interested parties, with PSG already having an offer rebuffed by Palmeiras.

“There are many clubs from different countries keen on signing him. PSG have already moved,” Douglas added.

Apart from PSG and Real Madrid, Barcelona have been the other club linked with a move for Endrick while Chelsea are also in the mix. However, with PSG being the only club to have made an official approach, the ball is on Real Madrid’s court as they look to secure the services of the teenage sensation.

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.
