Palmeiras forward Endrick has the world at his feet. The 16-year-old, reportedly monitored by a number of European teams, is also wanted by Real Madrid and transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has confirmed on his podcast that the European champions have been pushing a lot for his signature in the past few days.

The news comes days after it was revealed that the Brazilian team had rejected an approach from Paris Saint-Germain for the 16-year-old attacker, who has scored three goals in seven senior appearances for Palmeiras.

Apart from Real Madrid and PSG, there is also strong interest from Premier League giants Chelsea, while Barcelona have also been mentioned as a suitor, although their financial issues make them an outsider in the race.

PSG made their move and offered up a combined €80 million for Endrick and fellow Palmeiras teenage prodigy Estevao.

But signing Endrick is still pretty much an open race, as reported by Romano.

“There’s still no agreement between Palmeiras and any other club, or on the player’s side,” Romano said in his briefing for CaughtOffside.

“It’s still open and it’s the player who will decide, so more than bids to Palmeiras, it’s about convincing the player. The race remains the same: Chelsea, Real Madrid, PSG. All the clubs are still in the race, 100%,” he added.

Real Madrid have enjoyed a lot of success by landing Brazilian talents in the recent past. Vinicius Jr and Rodrygo Goes have become key players of the first-team setup while Reinier Jesus could still be integrated into the setup after his loan spell with Girona.

At the same time, however, PSG have Neymar and Marquinhos, two of Brazil’s senior figures and the temptation of playing alongside the veterans might work in PSG’s favour. 

As things stand, though, the race for Endrick remains open and Real Madrid are working extra hard to try and beat PSG and Chelsea to the 16-year-old’s signing.

Of all players people would have expected to turn up for El Clasico today from Real Madrid, it was the backup right-back Lucaz Vazquez who delivered an absolute masterclass of a performance in their 3-2 win.

The Spaniard played Barcelona out of the park starting as the right-back, and ran circles around Joao Cancelo.

He won the penalty for the first goal, scored the equaliser in the 73rd minute, and then assisted Jude Bellingham’s winner in the 91st minute.

“Great night, like many others at the Santiago Bernabeu. We are very grateful to the fans, they created a spectacular atmosphere. We are where want to be, six points away from winning the league,” Vazquez said, as quoted by MARCA.

Coming off an exhausting 120 minutes vs Manchester City in the Champions League, not many would have expected the shift Madrid put in tonight, especially after trailing on two occasions.

“The team, despite the great effort in Manchester, showed their face again. We once again played a great game, and we did everything in our power to achieve this win that gives us the advantage in the league,” Vazquez commented on it.

Now 11 points clear off Barcelona, Madrid can almost sniff La Liga out, and according to Vazquez, it reflects their work well.

“I think this difference speaks well about our work. We had a very good season in La Liga, and we are on the right track.”

As for his own performance, the Spaniard was modest, and said, “I am very happy to be able to help the team. A lot of things went well today, and that is important for everyone”

He was asked two very important things, as well, including his possible inclusion in the 2024 European Championship, to which he replied, “I would love for Luis de la Fuente to call me up for the Euros.”

And more importantly, he also spoke about the controversial penalty incident, but claimed that it was 100% a penalty. “I cut back and his leg caught me. It was a penalty.”

Real Madrid have five days off now before they travel to the Basque county to take on Real Sociedad in the league before travelling to the Allianz Arena to face Bayern Munich in the Champions League semi-finals.
