For clubs to fight for a player’s signature two years before he can legally make a move to Europe is unheard of. If anything, it speaks of the player’s sheer quality and class at a tender age.

Such is the case with Palmeiras’ forward Endrick. Despite being just 16 years old, Real Madrid, Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain are just three of the several clubs who have been running after his signature for months and an agreement with one of the three does not seem far away.

According to reports from ESPN, PSG are currently in pole position to sign the teen protege next season are preparing a new bid after having their €45 million offer rejected earlier this month.

They are prepared to go all out for his signing and meet the Brazilian club’s asking price of €60 million for the teenager. Moreover, the club are said to be using Neymar’s influence to prime Endrick’s mind in favour of a move to France. 

Last month, Los Blancos were said to be in the pole position to sign the player, but a lot has changed since then. Barcelona boss Xavi Hernandez has openly announced his club’s interest in the Brazilian starlet, while PSG have gone on the offensive in terms of negotiations.

If Madrid are to land the player, they will have to make quick steps in the negotiations right now. Given that the team are on the lookout for a forward, it would seem natural for them to make a final push in the coming days.

Just six matches into his senior career in Brazil, Endrick has already scored three goals and shows no signs of stopping. While the hype around his profile is real, one cannot deny the talent in his boots.

Eder Militao has charted a remarkable recovery to return from an ACL injury he suffered on the first day of the 2023/24 season.

The Brazilian international came back to action in late March, featuring for a couple of minutes against Athletic Club – the very team against whom he had sustained the injury.

Following that, the centre-back has also featured sparingly in games against Mallorca and Manchester City, although he is yet to start a game.

Ancelotti has plan for Militao

Now, AS reports that Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti has devised a plan for Militao to be ready to go when the team face Bayern Munich later this month in the UEFA Champions League semifinal first leg.

Militao is expected to play an important role in the Champions League semi-finals. The coaching staff is counting on him to reinforce the team’s defensive capabilities.

The first phase of his reintegration into the dynamics of the competition, which was more psychological than physical, has already been completed.

Ancelotti, who has now drawn up a special plan to give him minutes in order to get him ready (physically) for the semi-finals.

First Militao will be used in the Clásico today, depending on how the game goes. Then against Real Sociedad next week, on this occasion, the Brazilian could even likely be a starter.

At centre-back or right-back

Militao will have options to play against Bayern Munich in the centre of defence, alongside Antonio Rudiger, but also at right-back, as Dani Carvajal will miss the game because he picked up his third yellow card of the season at the Etihad.

It will all depend on how the Brazilian performs in the two remaining games against Barça and Real Sociedad before the UCL semi-final first leg on 30 April.

For the second leg, on 8 May, at the Bernabeu, Militao will compete on equal terms with the rest of the back four. There will be one more game between the two contests, against Cadiz, for him to get minutes. That’s what Ancelotti is counting on with the Brazilian.
