Kylian Mbappe’s future continues to dominate the headlines in the media. The PSG superstar will very likely be on the move this summer and Real Madrid have long been touted as his next destination.
But, other clubs have started to show interest in acquiring his services. Al Hilal of Saudi Arabia have already made a formal €300 million bid, which PSG are likely to accept. It would force Real Madrid’s hand to act on their interest, given that they have been quiet so far.
Now, though, La Vanguardia is claiming that Les Parisiens have grown tired of Real Madrid and would prefer to do a deal with the Merengues’ arch-rivals Barcelona for Mbappe.
As reported earlier today, Barça have suddenly shown an interest in the Frenchman’s situation and are planning to discuss a move with PSG, despite their iffy financial position.
Now, the aforementioned report states that the Catalans have already been in contact with the Ligue 1 champions and are willing to offer two key players, Gavi and Ousmane Dembele, as part of the deal for the Real Madrid target.
Such a proposition does appear extremely unlikely given that the two players are key cogs in Xavi’s plans. Furthermore, Barcelona would have no way to fit Mbappe’s salary on their wage bill either.
But with interest in the 24-year-old rising, Real Madrid will need to act sooner rather than later, even though it is understood that the player continues to prioritise a transfer to the Santiago Bernabeu over any other club.
Real Madrid very happy with future star Endrick, eagerly awaiting his arrival in 2024 – Romano
Real Madrid’s attacking unit has been crippled by the loss of Karim Benzema earlier in the summer, which was followed by the loss of Vinicius Jr due to injury.
Although Vinicius has returned, there is much left to be desired from the Madrid frontline as we progress through to the season.
Real Madrid, though, are waiting on the arrival of Endrick. The young Brazilian is set to join the Real Madrid squad in the summer of 2024 when he turns 18.
Real Madrid impressed by Endrick
Endrick has already started his preparation for his pending move to Santiago Bernabeu, having performed exceptionally well in his native Brazil this year.
The youngster is constantly working on his game, in order to further improve himself as an attacker. It has left Real Madrid quite happy and eager for his arrival, reports Fabrizio Romano.
The journalist claims that Real Madrid have been keeping close tabs on everything Endrick has been doing, on and off the pitch, at Palmeiras.
And they have received very good reports on the 17-year-old, with the club impressed by how he is putting efforts to improve himself both performance-wise and in other facets.
Despite there being some question marks over his performances, the teenage forward is starting to showcase his potential, having scored five goals in five starts for Palmeiras.
Endrick also learning new languages
Endrick is not only just working on his performance. In fact, the Brazilian is also learning other languages in order to quickly settle into life in Spain.
The youngster can speak Portuguese, but he may have to master Spanish during his time at Santiago Bernabeu.
As mentioned earlier, Endrick can already speak Portuguese, which should go a long way in helping him team up with fellow Brazilians Vinicius Jr and Rodrygo.
Even Eder Militao can speak Portuguese, which should make it easier for Endrick to adapt to life in Spain, at least for the next year or so.
