Since Endrick has started to generate a ton of hype as arguably the most gifted youngster in Brazilian football, Real Madrid have been linked with a move for him in the near future.
However, the likes of Barcelona and Manchester United have been reported to be eyeing a switch for the teenage sensation. The latter are said to have made contact with Palmeiras about a move for the 16-year-old whizkid.
Despite the speculation around other top European sides being interested in signing the prodigious striker, a key factor behind why Los Blancos remain confident about being frontrunners in the race for his signature have been revealed.
As per the latest information provided by MARCA, Real Madrid are well informed about each and every move around the Palmeiras prodigy, as he shares the same agency with none other than Vinicius Jr.
Keeping this in mind, it has been affirmed that the club are ‘calm’ about all the rumours surrounding the in-demand talent.
Ultimately, it is next to impossible to look past the European champions when it comes to a club that has a stranglehold over the Brazilian market.
The signings of Casemiro, Vinicius Jr. and Rodrygo from Sao Paulo, Flamengo and Santos respectively were coups that emphasised that the Spanish giants were truly ahead of the curve.
Snapping up three unearthed gems and turning them into some of the very best players in their position, the side from the Spanish capital cannot be questioned when it comes to their eye for talent in Brazil, with Endrick at the top of their agenda currently despite links to the likes of Joao Gomes and Matheus Nascimento, among others.
It is expected that a number of other top sides will not relent in their pursuit to sign the highly-rated wonderkid. However, Real Madrid tend to win any and every transfer race, considering the size of the club and the project in place. The same is likely to occur in Endrick’s case.

The 27-year-old has been waiting for an official offer from Los Blancos for a while, but the club will wait for March or April before taking a decision on his extension.
Asensio took a while to grow important for Carlo Ancelotti this season, but has been featuring regularly on the right-wing lately. He even scored in 2-0 win against Valencia in midweek, taking his tally to two for the season, excluding three assists as well.
Arsenal are definitely looking to add more firepower to their squad for next season, having already brought in Leandro Trossard in the winter. Asensio could serve as the perfect backup to Bukayo Saka, who has been in incredible form all season.
