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.

According to Fabrizio Romano, Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Liverpool are all monitoring Bayer Leverkusen and Germany wonderkid Florian Wirtz.

After recovering from his ACL injury, the teenage sensation has been slowly working his way back to his best form. So far this term, Wirtz has managed to rack up a tally of two goals and six assists from 13 matches in all competitions.

The 19-year-old’s talent and potential have never been in question and hence it does not come as a surprise that elite clubs such as Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Liverpool are all keeping tabs on the German international.

A versatile attacking midfielder, Wirtz is capable of playing anywhere in the final third of the pitch and backs up with top-notch end product. Be it as a false-nine or in a more withdrawn role, the youngster has excelled for Bayer Leverkusen, catching the attention of top teams.

Real Madrid, for their part, are also understood to be among Wirtz’s admirers. Given the situation surrounding Karim Benzema’s fitness and the lack of backup at the top, the youngster could be an option, as he has shown potential while operating through the middle.

But Barcelona also have a strong interest in the teenager with reports even suggesting that they have already made contact with his father to enquire about his situation.

At the same time, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is understood to be a huge admirer of his fellow German and with Roberto Firmino on his way out, Wirtz could be lined up as a possible replacement.

However, Romano adds that the expectation is that Wirtz could stay at Bayer Leverkusen for one more year and depart Germany once the UEFA Euro 2024 is out of the way.

For now, there have been talks or negotiations with any clubs, but Real Madrid, Barcelona and Liverpool are all tracking Wirtz and his progress in Germany.
