It is no secret that Brazilian sensation Endrick is being monitored by the who’s who of European football at the moment.

The 16-year-old Palmeiras forward made waves at the Copinha tournament earlier this year after which he is being courted by top clubs across Europe. Real Madrid are one of the suitors of the young striker, but face competition from the likes of Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain.

And, as per a report from Libertad Digital, PSG have already made their first move to try and sign Endrick by tabling an offer worth €20 million. However, Palmeiras have swiftly knocked back the proposal made by the Ligue 1 giants.

Endrick signed his first professional contract with Palmeiras in July earlier this year after he turned 16 years old. The young forward committed his future to the club until 2025.

Following that, he has even made his first-team debut for the Brazilian outfit, featuring in three games. While the youngster is set to score a senior goal, the potential and promise he has are there for everyone to see.

So, it should not come as a surprise that PSG, driven by key official Antero Henrique, made an attempt to lure Endrick and beat the rest of the competition by offering €20 million.

But their offer has been rejected by Palmeiras, who could demand as much as €70 million for the teenage sensation.

The report adds that Real Madrid’s chief scout, Juni Calafat, is receiving excellent reports from his right-hand man about Endrick.

Still just 16 years old, Endrick will only be able to leave Brazil after two years when he turns 18. But clubs will continue to try and seal his signing before that to avoid competition. With PSG having made their first move, it will be interesting to see if Real Madrid react or decide to wait.

Of all players people would have expected to turn up for El Clasico today from Real Madrid, it was the backup right-back Lucaz Vazquez who delivered an absolute masterclass of a performance in their 3-2 win.

The Spaniard played Barcelona out of the park starting as the right-back, and ran circles around Joao Cancelo.

He won the penalty for the first goal, scored the equaliser in the 73rd minute, and then assisted Jude Bellingham’s winner in the 91st minute.

“Great night, like many others at the Santiago Bernabeu. We are very grateful to the fans, they created a spectacular atmosphere. We are where want to be, six points away from winning the league,” Vazquez said, as quoted by MARCA.

Coming off an exhausting 120 minutes vs Manchester City in the Champions League, not many would have expected the shift Madrid put in tonight, especially after trailing on two occasions.

“The team, despite the great effort in Manchester, showed their face again. We once again played a great game, and we did everything in our power to achieve this win that gives us the advantage in the league,” Vazquez commented on it.

Now 11 points clear off Barcelona, Madrid can almost sniff La Liga out, and according to Vazquez, it reflects their work well.

“I think this difference speaks well about our work. We had a very good season in La Liga, and we are on the right track.”

As for his own performance, the Spaniard was modest, and said, “I am very happy to be able to help the team. A lot of things went well today, and that is important for everyone”

He was asked two very important things, as well, including his possible inclusion in the 2024 European Championship, to which he replied, “I would love for Luis de la Fuente to call me up for the Euros.”

And more importantly, he also spoke about the controversial penalty incident, but claimed that it was 100% a penalty. “I cut back and his leg caught me. It was a penalty.”

Real Madrid have five days off now before they travel to the Basque county to take on Real Sociedad in the league before travelling to the Allianz Arena to face Bayern Munich in the Champions League semi-finals.
