Real Madrid growing concerned about 17-year-old signing’s situation in Brazil

It was December last year when Real Madrid announced the signing of Brazilian wonderkid Endrick from Palmeiras.

The teenage sensation had been on the radars of every top club across Europe, but ultimately Los Blancos won the race, signing him in a deal worth €60 million including add-ons.

Given that he was only 16 years old at the time of the transfer, Endrick stayed at Palmeiras and will only be joining Real Madrid in the summer of 2024, once he turns 18.

Real Madrid concerned about Endrick’s situation

Now 17, Endrick has had difficulties getting game-time at Palmeiras in recent months despite showing great promise early on in his senior career.

Indeed, the teenage striker has only started four of Palmeiras’ 22 league matches this season. Furthermore, he has been left out as an unused substitute as many as six times by manager Abel Ferreira.

In all, Endrick has made 16 Serie A appearances for Palmeiras this season, playing only 462 minutes and scoring four goals.

This lack of game-time is causing some concerns at Real Madrid as they hoped to see Endrick play regularly in Brazil before arriving at the Santiago Bernabeu next year.

Apart from the game-time, Los Blancos are also worried about the treatment that the teenage wonderkid receives on the pitch from opponents.

In Palmeiras’ most recent outing against Corinthians, he was on the receiving end of a horrific knee-high tackle by Maycon, who was making no attempt to challenge for the ball.

Endrick emerged unscathed from the incident, but that has not stopped Real Madrid from worrying about their soon-to-be player’s situation in Brazil.

Endrick eager to don the Real Madrid colours

It is no secret that Endrick is a huge Real Madrid supporter and is eager to don the royal white jersey of the Spanish capital club.

In a recent interview, the 17-year-old whizkid revealed his admiration for Real Madrid legend Karim Benzema while also shedding light on the advice he has received from Vinicius Jr.

“I work every day to arrive at Real Madrid ready to help the team,” he said“Viní Jr told me I was going to enjoy myself [at Real Madrid], have fun, and that it would be the highlight of my career.”

Real Madrid usurped the top spot in the La Liga standings from arch-rivals FC Barcelona as they defeated Girona 3-0 away at Estadi Montilivi.

It was a fine performance from Carlo Ancelotti’s men against Michel’s side, with the returning Jude Bellingham leading the way for his team.

After being benched against Las Palmas in midweek, the England international returned to the starting XI today and turned in yet another Man of the Match display for Real Madrid.

It all started with Joselu opening the scoring just 15 minutes into the game, with Bellingham assisting the goal with a special, outside-of-the-boot pass from the left side, bringing back memories of Luka Modric doing something similar a few years ago.

Talking about that special pass, Bellingham said: “I’ve been watching Luka every day for months. I just want to be creative. It took the pressure off us at the start.”

On the match and the result, the 20-year-old stated that it was a good day across the board for Real Madrid, as he said: “It was an important win. They were doing very well. We made a statement of intent to La Liga. Three goals, a clean sheet….”

It has been a truly remarkable start to life at Real Madrid for Bellingham and expressing how he feels to play for the Merengues, he exclaimed:

“I feel very good. I have freedom of movement and I’m enjoying football. Whenever I put on this shirt I always try to do my best.”

Apart from assisting Joselu’s opener, Bellingham also got his name on the scoresheet in the second period. Talking about his goal, the wonderkid said:

“It wasn’t a very good finish. I could have scored some more, but the important thing is the victory.”

The strike meant that Bellingham now has seven goals and two assists across all competitions for Real Madrid. Reflecting on his brilliant start, he said:

“It’s a good start, not bad. I would like to continue on this path and I won’t always score or assist, but I will always give my best.”

Bellingham’s celebration has been a huge hit, with kids in school, players from other clubs, and many others mimicking it. When asked how his special celebration originated, he replied:

“I don’t know where I first celebrated. I think it was with Birmingham. It’s an inspiration to see kids doing it in schools. It’s a wonderful thing.”
