Real Madrid have sent an executive to negotiate Endrick’s signing, want to finalise deal soon
It seems like Real Madrid have stepped up the ante in their pursuit of Palmeiras wonderkid Endrick Felipe. According to MARCA, Los Blancos have already sent an executive to Brazil to negotiate with the teenager’s club as they wish to finalise the deal in the next few days.
The 16-year-old has been on the radars of Real Madrid and several other top clubs across Europe for quite some time now. However, it is Los Blancos who seem to have taken a major step to clinch the deal.
While the initial plan was to wait for his signing until 2023, Real Madrid have acted quicky as PSG have been ramping up their interest in the teenage striker.
So, even though Los Blancos will have to wait for two more years to see Endrick arrive at the club, they have already sent an executive to hold talks with Palmeiras and finalise a transfer.
Endrick signed his first professional contract with the Brazilian outfit in July earlier this year when he turned 16. It is believed to contain a €60 million release clause, although the report states that Palmeiras have an agreement with the player to sell for €35-40 million.
While Real Madrid are aware that forking out such a sum for a 16-year-old would be a risky operation, they are prepared to take a gamble, having done so with Vinicius Jr, Rodrygo Goes and Reinier Jesus in the past.
The report also insists that Endrick’s family want to see him at Real Madrid, while he is also said to idolise the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Vinicius Jr, which could favour the Merengues as well.
With a club executive already in Brazil to hold talks, the next few days could be critical in how things pan out for Real Madrid in their pursuit of Endrick.

Real Madrid, Barcelona, Liverpool monitoring 19-year-old Bundesliga wonderkid – Romano
According to Fabrizio Romano, Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Liverpool are all monitoring Bayer Leverkusen and Germany wonderkid Florian Wirtz.
After recovering from his ACL injury, the teenage sensation has been slowly working his way back to his best form. So far this term, Wirtz has managed to rack up a tally of two goals and six assists from 13 matches in all competitions.
The 19-year-old’s talent and potential have never been in question and hence it does not come as a surprise that elite clubs such as Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Liverpool are all keeping tabs on the German international.
A versatile attacking midfielder, Wirtz is capable of playing anywhere in the final third of the pitch and backs up with top-notch end product. Be it as a false-nine or in a more withdrawn role, the youngster has excelled for Bayer Leverkusen, catching the attention of top teams.
Real Madrid, for their part, are also understood to be among Wirtz’s admirers. Given the situation surrounding Karim Benzema’s fitness and the lack of backup at the top, the youngster could be an option, as he has shown potential while operating through the middle.
But Barcelona also have a strong interest in the teenager with reports even suggesting that they have already made contact with his father to enquire about his situation.
At the same time, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is understood to be a huge admirer of his fellow German and with Roberto Firmino on his way out, Wirtz could be lined up as a possible replacement.
However, Romano adds that the expectation is that Wirtz could stay at Bayer Leverkusen for one more year and depart Germany once the UEFA Euro 2024 is out of the way.
For now, there have been talks or negotiations with any clubs, but Real Madrid, Barcelona and Liverpool are all tracking Wirtz and his progress in Germany.
