As we approach 2024, Endrick is steadily creating excitement within the Real Madrid fanbase, as they desperately wait for the youngster’s arrival at Santiago Bernabeu.

The Palmeiras whizkid is slated to join the Real Madrid setup next summer when he turns 18. Fans are already excited about the prospect of him joining the attacking unit.

In a recent interview with MARCA, Endrick talked about the prospect of joining Real Madrid, while discussing many topics including Karim Benzema and racism, among others.

“It’s going to be a lot of responsibility, a great challenge. I am very excited to play with that shirt and be able to enjoy it with the fans. It’s a dream I’ve had since I was little, to be part of Real Madrid,” Endrick said about his new journey at Real Madrid.

“I know that I still have challenges ahead of me at Palmeiras and I have to meet them or at least help my team to be at the top, but of course, I’m also thinking about Real Madrid,” the attacker added.

At the age of just 17, Endrick has enjoyed immense success at Palmeiras, racking up 60 competitive appearances. He has also won two caps for the Brazilian national team.

“From a very young age, I have had to show that I am not afraid of anyone. It all started when I was very young. I just wanted to play football.

“I was very clear about it and for that, you can’t show fear of anyone or anything and that’s what I’ve done since I was very young,” the player said on his growth.

Endrick’s arrival at Real Madrid comes against the backdrop of Karim Benzema leaving Santiago Bernabeu. But the young Brazilian has great respect for the Frenchman.

When asked about a perfect striker, Endrick quoted Benzema, stating, “Karim Benzema has all the qualities to be the perfect striker, he is currently in Saudi Arabia, and he played for Real Madrid for many years.”

“He knows how to understand the game perfectly, he is a spectacular player in every way. The best striker in the world for a long time. Harry Kane and Haaland have the perfect qualities to be the ideal striker,” he added.

Endrick’s quest to succeed at Real Madrid will be aided by his Brazilian compatriots Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo. Talking about the duo, Endrick said, “I have had the opportunity to share time with Rodrygo and Vinicius. Remember that image of us on the bike training?”

“I have been told many things from day to day, about the importance of everything that happens, about the greatness in every way, but they tell me that you realise it all when you are there,” he added.

Endrick was also asked about racism in La Liga. In response, the Brazilian said, “I’ve already suffered racism, but I don’t care, the more they do it, the more I’ll laugh in their face. I’m in the fight with Vini, Rodrygo, and all those who suffer racism.

“You can say whatever you want to to me. I won’t care and I think that will make them more angry. It’s the best way to fight racism.”

While Endrick will soon join the Real Madrid camp, the forward was closely monitored by Barcelona as well, prior to the Madrid acquisition.

Luis Suarez was among the figures who wanted Endrick to play for Barcelona. When asked about that, Endrick said, “I saw a lot of his games with Barcelona. I remember his goal against PSG after going past Thiago Silva and David Luiz. I have learned many things from him and he has contributed a lot to Brazilian football.”

Finally, Endrick backed himself to succeed at Real Madrid and withstand the pressure of European football. “I hope to have a brilliant time at Real Madrid, in a great stadium, it’s impressive. It’s been a dream since I was a child. All the children have it, many top footballers have played there,” he said.

I went to a game a while ago and I was able to experience the atmosphere, and the fans. It will make me very happy to play here,” he added.

Real Madrid’s most crucial endeavour of the season edges closer as they gear up to take Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League final.

Emotions are sure to be running high not only because of the monumental occasion; but also because a certain Toni Kroos will be playing his final game in the royal white jersey.

The German will be parting ways after enjoying 10 trophy-filled seasons and will aim to add another to his illustrious cabinet before he travels to Germany for the Euros in what will officially be his last rodeo in professional football.

Now, speaking in the build-up to the grand showdown with Borussia, Kroos has given his two cents on the team’s preparation and the morale inside the locker room.

On the upcoming Champions League final

Kroos acknowledged it felt incredible to play his sixth final for the Merengues, but claimed none of this success would have been possible without the efforts of a cohesive team.

“My sixth final? It’s a beautiful thing. I was lucky to play for a team that was able to achieve these successes.

“I am part of this, but I do not like to be alone, there is always the team. Without a team, it is impossible to do this,” Kroos remarked during an interview with RMTV.

Additionally, the German midfielder argued that Real Madrid were in high spirits today and they have the potential to surprise people.

“Today I saw everyone enjoying and looking forward to. The final is on Saturday. There is a competitor that may surprise some people.”

Furthermore, Kroos is eager to close his Real Madrid career on a high and claims this will be his last effort before riding off into the sunset.

“This will be my last effort for Real Madrid. Hala Madrid,” he exclaimed.

On his farewell game

Kroos played his final game at the Santiago Bernabeu against Real Betis recently, and his emotional substitution in the 86th minute marked a poignant farewell.

As Kroos came off the pitch, he confessed that seeing his daughter cry was a difficult pill to swallow and he will carry these special moments till the very end.

“I tried not to cry on Saturday but when I saw my daughter cry it changed. It was very difficult for me. I will never forget these moments. I will remember forever, my children and my wife too,” he said.

The 34-year-old also mentioned that whenever he feels like experiencing a tear-jerker, he will take a trip down memory lane by looking at the farewell pictures.

“Saturday was the night of a lifetime. If one day at home I want to cry, I will look at the farewell pictures.”
