Speaking in an interview with RTVE (h/t AS), Real Madrid new boy Endrick has claimed that he hopes to spend his entire life at the club.

Endrick, 17, signed for Real Madrid from Palmeiras back in December 2022, in a deal worth €60 million (including add-ons).

Considering that he was not 18 at that point, he had to continue in Brazil and will be leaving Palmeiras for Real Madrid this summer.

Even though he is yet to arrive at the club, the 17-year-old forward already had a chance to play at the Santiago Bernabeu when Brazil faced Spain in a friendly in March.

Endrick is very much excited to join his new teammates at Real Madrid soon and hopes that he spends his entire career at the club.

“I hope it will be a wonderful story with Real Madrid and that I will stay in Madrid for the rest of my life,” he said.

Endrick arrives at Real Madrid after having proven his mettle in senior football with Palmeiras while scoring some goals with the Brazil national team as well.

However, his arrival will coincide with and likely get overshadowed by the signing of Kylian Mbappe, who has also joined the club this summer.

When asked about the French superstar, Endrick was full of praise for his fellow forward, saying: “Mbappe is an incredible player.”

“I’m not going to take him out of my Ultimate Team team ever. He’s the best player in the game,” he added.

Endrick will not have it easy at Real Madrid as he will have competition from Mbappe, Rodrygo, Vinicius Jr., Joselu, Brahim Diaz, and Arda Guler. But the youngster is not fazed by it all, as he said:

“The more excellent and high-level players that are in Real Madrid, the better to be the best in the world.”

Spain midfielder credits Real Madrid assistant manager for career success

Spain’s European Championship campaign so far has been one filled with revelations. From young Lamine Yamal and Nico Williams on the wings to the ever-so-solid midfield, La Roja have impressed across the park and have taken the tournament by storm.

One such player who has played a critical role for the team despite not being in many pundits’ squad for the tournament is Fabian Ruiz. The PSG midfielder has been sensational for Luis de la Fuente’s men so far, scoring once and providing one assist in two games.

Despite not having any direct links with Real Madrid, the Spanish midfielder interestingly credits Davide Ancelotti for his success and AS brings the story.

A chapter in Naples

Fabian Ruiz may have never played for Los Blancos in his career so far, but he crossed paths with the Ancelottis in Naples a few years ago.

Ruiz signed for the Italian club from Real Betis in 2018 for a fee of €30 million. At the time, he was not known widely and was just seen as another routine Spanish midfielder aspiring to make it big.

As revealed by the player in a recent interview, however, it was Carlo Ancelotti’s son and Real Madrid assistant manager Davide Ancelotti who first saw the spark in him.

“Meeting him was a very important step in my career. From the beginning, he backed me, and it was not easy to pay what Napoli paid for me, a player who had not played much in La Liga with Betis.”

“If it weren’t for him, I wouldn’t be here. I have a very good relationship and friendship with him,” he added.

A special eye

Ruiz’s comments on Davide Ancelotti only make it clearer as to why Carlo Ancelotti holds his son’s advice in high regard. It is, after all, a testament to the tactician’s keen eye for special talent.

As revealed earlier this year, it was the manager’s son who suggested Joselu’s substitution against Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League semifinals when the team was on the brink of elimination.

What happened next was history as the veteran scored twice within minutes to turn the game around and send the Bavarians crashing out.

Davide has been rumoured to be interested in walking his own path soon as a specialist coach, but as it stands, will continue working under his father for at least one more year at Real Madrid.
