PSG have made an official proposal for 16-year-old Real Madrid target
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.

Real Madrid, Barcelona, Liverpool monitoring 19-year-old Bundesliga wonderkid – Romano
According to Fabrizio Romano, Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Liverpool are all monitoring Bayer Leverkusen and Germany wonderkid Florian Wirtz.
After recovering from his ACL injury, the teenage sensation has been slowly working his way back to his best form. So far this term, Wirtz has managed to rack up a tally of two goals and six assists from 13 matches in all competitions.
The 19-year-old’s talent and potential have never been in question and hence it does not come as a surprise that elite clubs such as Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Liverpool are all keeping tabs on the German international.
A versatile attacking midfielder, Wirtz is capable of playing anywhere in the final third of the pitch and backs up with top-notch end product. Be it as a false-nine or in a more withdrawn role, the youngster has excelled for Bayer Leverkusen, catching the attention of top teams.
Real Madrid, for their part, are also understood to be among Wirtz’s admirers. Given the situation surrounding Karim Benzema’s fitness and the lack of backup at the top, the youngster could be an option, as he has shown potential while operating through the middle.
But Barcelona also have a strong interest in the teenager with reports even suggesting that they have already made contact with his father to enquire about his situation.
At the same time, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is understood to be a huge admirer of his fellow German and with Roberto Firmino on his way out, Wirtz could be lined up as a possible replacement.
However, Romano adds that the expectation is that Wirtz could stay at Bayer Leverkusen for one more year and depart Germany once the UEFA Euro 2024 is out of the way.
For now, there have been talks or negotiations with any clubs, but Real Madrid, Barcelona and Liverpool are all tracking Wirtz and his progress in Germany.
