There is a lot of excitement at Real Madrid over the arrival of Endrick. The Brazilian whizkid is all set to join the Real Madrid camp in the summer when he turns 18.

Regarded as one of the best talents to come out of Brazilian football in recent years, Endrick generated a lot of hype in Spain when he visited Madrid, earlier this year.

Following his visit, Endrick has now shared his thoughts about Real Madrid and many other things, in a recent interview with Brazilian magazine Placar.

The highlight statement from the interview was: “I have the goal of being an idol not just for some people, but for everyone: the elderly, little children, adults.”

The statement highlighted Endrick’s ambition and confidence, even at the age of just 17. “My teammates don’t have to treat me like a 17-year-old boy, like a teenager – they have to treat me like an adult,” he added.

Endrick is still plying his trade for Palmeiras and will remain at the club until the end of the season. He has already made a solid impression in his native Brazil, scoring 14 league goals.

The 17-year-old currently dons the number nine jersey for Palmeiras and deservedly so. Even at Real Madrid, he will reportedly wear the same number, which was previously worn by Karim Benzema.

“Now I’m the #9 at Palmeiras, I’ve always been the #9 because it was my position, where I play in front. I’ve played with #11, #10, #7. Numbers don’t matter to me. Obviously, #9 is a big responsibility and it’s a very good shirt too,” he said.

Moving on, Endrick also shared his experience of watching a game at Santiago Bernabeu, notably heaping praise on Jude Bellingham.

“Watching the game at the Bernabéu I didn’t even look at the ball, I was looking at where the spaces are, how the players positioned themselves. Jude Bellingham impressed me a lot because he never stops running. I was able to follow along and I really enjoyed being there,” he shared.

Real Madrid do not want to pay ‘crazy money’ for top defensive target – Romano

As has been reported by multiple reliable sources today, Alphonso Davies is likely to be on his way to Real Madrid from Bayern Munich in the summer.

It has been suggested that the 23-year-old Canadian left-back already has a verbal agreement with Los Blancos over a transfer either this summer or in 2025, when his contract with the Bundesliga champions runs down.

Now, the idea is for Real Madrid to start negotiations with Bayern Munich over a transfer fee so that a mutually beneficial agreement can be reached for the summer window.

Real Madrid will not pay crazy money

Amidst all this, Fabrizio Romano has come out with an update claiming that Real Madrid do not intend to pay ‘crazy money’ to sign Davies from Bayern Munich given that he will be entering the final year of his contract.

The Italian transfer expert claims that Real Madrid have been the preferred destination for Davies for a while now and that the personal terms between the two parties will not be an issue at all.

So, a summer move would now hinge on Bayern Munich’s asking price for their left-back.

Romano states that the Bavarian giants will attempt to tie Davies down to a new contract until May or even June.

But if the left-back, who is demanding hefty wages worth around €20 million, does not agree to sign, they will be forced to sell instead of losing him for free next year.

In that scenario, Real Madrid will be best-placed to sign Davies, although Los Blancos will not go overboard with their spending on the Canadian.
