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.

Spain’s European Championship campaign so far has been one filled with revelations. From young Lamine Yamal and Nico Williams on the wings to the ever-so-solid midfield, La Roja have impressed across the park and have taken the tournament by storm.

One such player who has played a critical role for the team despite not being in many pundits’ squad for the tournament is Fabian Ruiz. The PSG midfielder has been sensational for Luis de la Fuente’s men so far, scoring once and providing one assist in two games.

Despite not having any direct links with Real Madrid, the Spanish midfielder interestingly credits Davide Ancelotti for his success and AS brings the story.

A chapter in Naples

Fabian Ruiz may have never played for Los Blancos in his career so far, but he crossed paths with the Ancelottis in Naples a few years ago.

Ruiz signed for the Italian club from Real Betis in 2018 for a fee of €30 million. At the time, he was not known widely and was just seen as another routine Spanish midfielder aspiring to make it big.

As revealed by the player in a recent interview, however, it was Carlo Ancelotti’s son and Real Madrid assistant manager Davide Ancelotti who first saw the spark in him.

“Meeting him was a very important step in my career. From the beginning, he backed me, and it was not easy to pay what Napoli paid for me, a player who had not played much in La Liga with Betis.”

“If it weren’t for him, I wouldn’t be here. I have a very good relationship and friendship with him,” he added.

A special eye

Ruiz’s comments on Davide Ancelotti only make it clearer as to why Carlo Ancelotti holds his son’s advice in high regard. It is, after all, a testament to the tactician’s keen eye for special talent.

As revealed earlier this year, it was the manager’s son who suggested Joselu’s substitution against Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League semifinals when the team was on the brink of elimination.

What happened next was history as the veteran scored twice within minutes to turn the game around and send the Bavarians crashing out.

Davide has been rumoured to be interested in walking his own path soon as a specialist coach, but as it stands, will continue working under his father for at least one more year at Real Madrid.
