Kylian Mbappe has stolen the limelight in the Spanish media ahead of his speculated move to Real Madrid this summer. The Frenchman, however, is not the only era-defining signing Los Blancos have planned for June.

Brazilian football’s crown jewel, Endrick, is set to join forces with Carlo Ancelotti’s side this summer as well after the men in white shelled out a sum of €35 million with an added €25 million in bonuses for his signing over a year ago.

Fee on the rise

While Florentino Perez and Co. agreed on a fixed payment of €35 million with Palmeiras for the prodigal star, the actual sum they will be forced to pay will be significantly more.

As revealed by AS, the €25 million fee agreed in variables were distributed equally for his stints with Real Madrid and Palmeiras at €12.5 million each.

The Brazilian club, however, have already guaranteed €11.25 million of the possible €12.5 million through the youngster’s achievements at the club.

Palmeiras were scheduled to receive €2.5 million for every five goals the player scores for the club before his move to Real Madrid with an upper limit of 25 goals. Endrick, however, has already scored 20 goals, guaranteeing his team at least €10 million.

Adding to that the €1.25 million bonus for a call-up to the Brazilian National Team ups Real Madrid’s transfer fee by €11.25 million.

The figure could rise

Given that the agreement states the limit for the goal-scoring clause to be 25 goals, Endrick could potentially gift his current employer an additional €2.5 million and raise the variables earned to €13.75 million.

Notably, the youngster is yet to play five more games for the Brazilian side before he officially leaves for Real Madrid. Considering his knack in front of goal, it is impossible to rule out that he completes the aforementioned target.

His start to life at Real Madrid, moreover, will almost certainly up the fee involved once more.

Real Madrid are confident that Kylian Mbappe will not participate in the Paris Olympic Games, and as a result, they expect him to join their preseason squad in August, according to a striking report from SPORT.

The club has made it clear that they will not make any exceptions for Mbappe, nor will they treat him as a “special case” who can participate in both the Euro Cup and the Olympic Games, which are generally meant for younger athletes.

It is important to highlight that Real Madrid president, Florentino Perez, is currently in Paris for a FIFA event. This event will give him the opportunity to meet with French President Emmanuel Macron and discuss the potential transfer of Mbappe.

One of Perez’s main interests is to bring the French star to Real Madrid as soon as possible. Ideally, this would be after the European Championship in Germany, which runs from June 14 to July 14, followed by a short vacation.

This is why Mbappe would be expected to join the team only in August.

No Mbappe is Paris Olympics

Interestingly, this plan would be disrupted if Mbappe were to compete in the Paris Olympic Games. 

While participating in the Olympics would be highly appealing to the French capital and could even boost Mbappe’s popularity among his fellow countrymen, Real Madrid sources believe that he will skip the Olympics.

For now, Real Madrid’s confidence that Mbappe will not participate in the Olympics means they are planning for him to join the team for the preseason in August.

Meanwhile, as the situation is still developing, Perez’s trip to Paris for FIFA’s 120th Anniversary appears to be yielding results, paving the way for Mbappe’s anticipated move to Real Madrid.

While everything related to the transfer is on track, the official announcement is pending followed by the presentation.
