Real Madrid president convinced by 16-year-old target who admires Cristiano Ronaldo, Vinicius

16-year-old Palmeiras attacker Endrick Felipe Moreira de Sousa has grabbed everyone’s attention through his blistering performances in South America.

As of today, Real Madrid remain his biggest aficionado and Spanish publication MARCA has said that club president Florentino Perez is satisfied with what he has seen of the youngster.

As a result, there are rumours that an official move from the European champions is expected soon, but everything depends on the price of the negotiation.

For now, earlier reports claimed that the 16-year-old Campeonato Brasileiro Serie A champion, who has scored three goals in his last two matches, has a release clause worth €60 million. 

While it’s true in some sense, it’s not entirely correct at this very moment, meaning that in case of an early agreement, he can leave for about €30-40 million.

The mentioned €60 million figure was included when the youngster signed his first professional contract with the Brazilian team, but it is something based on a series of variables like the number of games he plays until he is 18.

Everything was pre-determined by Palmeiras when handing him the deal, but nothing is concrete at the moment. This means if there is a price tag, it is because the player, himself, cannot move to the senior team in Europe before he turns 18.

As far as Real Madrid are concerned, those sitting in the offices are pretty much assured of his capabilities.

Even the player is passionate about the current European champions and is fascinated by the success stories of the likes of Vinicius Jr and Rodrygo, while he is a huge admirer of the club’s all-time leading goalscorer, Cristiano Ronaldo.

“It is a club that I have great affection for Cristiano Ronaldo, whom I always followed, with the four Champions Leagues he won there,” the youngster told MARCA. 

“I have a great affection for Real for Cristiano, although I have also looked for things in their history and they are a very good team. It is very gratifying for me to know that they are watching me and witnessing my games,” he added.

Lastly, Real Madrid are aware of the interest the 16-year-old forward has generated across Europe, but they are mostly calm about the situation because they know economic muscle will not decide the course of this transfer.

Ancelotti-favourite defender will leave Real Madrid if club signs 23-year-old ace

With Kylian Mbappe’s signing now a completed objective, Real Madrid turn to what was always considered the second most critical operation of this summer – Alphonso Davies.

The Canadian full-back has been on Los Blancos’ radar for a while now, but with his contract with Bayern Munich running until 2025, his signing is seen to be a tad bit more complicated.

The Bavarians’ firm stance that they wish to persist with the speedster, needless to say, has only made the objective more complicated for Los Blancos.

No room for three

Despite Bayern Munich’s repeated advances towards Davies in recent weeks, Real Madrid are firm that they will attempt to sign the player this summer.

In light of the Canadian full-back’s possible arrival, Cadena SER reveals that Ferland Mendy will almost certainly leave Real Madrid if Davies’ signing is pulled off.

Carlo Ancelotti is clear that he has no room for three left-backs in his squad. One of Fran Garcia and Mendy must thus leave the Spanish capital in such a scenario and the Frenchman is better placed on that front.

Mendy’s current deal in Madrid runs out next year and the player has been informed that a decision over his future at the club will be taken shortly.

On track with Davies

The Spanish outlet also reveal that the Canadian speedster rejected an offer from Bayern Munich in recent hours and that his departure from the Bavarian capital is not ruled out.

Bayern Munich demand a sum of €50 million for the dynamic full-back. Real Madrid, however, have set a spending limit of €30 million for the youngster and will not exceed that sum in any scenario.

Vincent Kompany’s men thus have a critical decision to make, for allowing Davies to run down the final year on his deal may well back-fire as did the case of Kylian Mbappe with PSG.

Real Madrid, as it stands, appear to be in the driver’s seat.
