It is no surprise that the best youngsters in the world of football have a host of clubs lining up for their signing. In the end, the player’s decision comes down to two aspects – the project and the money on offer.

The story of Erling Haaland last summer was similar. Close to ten top European sides attempted to sign the Norweigan International only for Manchester City to swoop him with their meticulous project and a massive paycheck.

Endrick’s saga seems to be going in a similar direction. Just 16 years of age, the Brazilian sensation is attracting interest from a host of interest from top clubs in Europe, including Real Madrid.

But, according to reports from Ge Globo, it is Paris Saint-Germain who have made the first move for the teenage prodigy. The Ligue 1 champions are prepared to offer Palmeiras a fee of €80 million for two of their star players – Endrick and Estêvão. However, the Brazilian side are not satisfied and are demanding more.

Endrick’s father, Douglas Ramos, had recently confirmed that PSG had officially begun negotiating with Palmeiras for the teenager. Now, the French giants are preparing a formal offer for Endrick and 15-year-old Estêvão.

Nasser Al-Khelaifi’s offer includes €50 million as a fixed fee with €30 million arriving as bonuses. Yet, Palmeiras want a fixed fee of €60 million for Endrick alone and refuse to accept anything less than his release clause.

PSG and Real Madrid are not the only clubs looking to sign the teenager. Chelsea and Barcelona are amongst the others in the running and it remains to be seen as to who is willing to meet Palmeiras’ demands.

Slowly but surely, the 16-year-old’s story is becoming the biggest talking point of the upcoming summer transfer window. While he cannot move to Europe for another two years at least, such a massive price tag could put pressure on the teenager from the get-go.

Ancelotti-favourite defender will leave Real Madrid if club signs 23-year-old ace

With Kylian Mbappe’s signing now a completed objective, Real Madrid turn to what was always considered the second most critical operation of this summer – Alphonso Davies.

The Canadian full-back has been on Los Blancos’ radar for a while now, but with his contract with Bayern Munich running until 2025, his signing is seen to be a tad bit more complicated.

The Bavarians’ firm stance that they wish to persist with the speedster, needless to say, has only made the objective more complicated for Los Blancos.

No room for three

Despite Bayern Munich’s repeated advances towards Davies in recent weeks, Real Madrid are firm that they will attempt to sign the player this summer.

In light of the Canadian full-back’s possible arrival, Cadena SER reveals that Ferland Mendy will almost certainly leave Real Madrid if Davies’ signing is pulled off.

Carlo Ancelotti is clear that he has no room for three left-backs in his squad. One of Fran Garcia and Mendy must thus leave the Spanish capital in such a scenario and the Frenchman is better placed on that front.

Mendy’s current deal in Madrid runs out next year and the player has been informed that a decision over his future at the club will be taken shortly.

On track with Davies

The Spanish outlet also reveal that the Canadian speedster rejected an offer from Bayern Munich in recent hours and that his departure from the Bavarian capital is not ruled out.

Bayern Munich demand a sum of €50 million for the dynamic full-back. Real Madrid, however, have set a spending limit of €30 million for the youngster and will not exceed that sum in any scenario.

Vincent Kompany’s men thus have a critical decision to make, for allowing Davies to run down the final year on his deal may well back-fire as did the case of Kylian Mbappe with PSG.

Real Madrid, as it stands, appear to be in the driver’s seat.
