According to Fabrizio Romano, Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea are ahead of all other clubs in the race to sign Palmeiras wonderkid Endrick.

The 16-year-old is a wanted commodity in the transfer market even though he cannot arrive in Europe for two more years due to FIFA rules. Despite that, the striker is sparking a major transfer war already with several sides vying to sign him up.

Reports had indicated that Real Madrid were closing in on his signing and had already sent an executive to formally start negotiations with Palmeiras to get the deal over the line at the earliest possible.

It was also claimed that Endrick himself would prefer to join Real Madrid. However, the 16-year-old’s father confirmed last night that they are yet to decide on his next move and there is no specific club that the teenager prefers at this point.

Now, Romano is reporting that along with Real Madrid, PSG and Chelsea are also making a stern push for the teenage striker’s signing.

Endrick signed his first professional contract with Palmeiras in July earlier this year. It is said to contain a €60 million release clause, although there is belief that the Brazilian club would be willing to accept a slightly lower sum.

Romano claims that no club has made an official bid for Endrick as of yet but suspects that it will change soon.

Chelsea, under their new ownership, are looking to add top young talents to their ranks while PSG are also hoping to utiliise their financial pull to land Endrick, who is regarded as the finest prospect in Brazilian football currently.

Real Madrid, though, are believed to have forged a good relationship with Endrick’s camp which could end up working in their favour should the battle for his signing heat up.

Real Madrid chief scout surprised over summer signing’s lack of minutes

Arda Guler was one of Real Madrid’s biggest bets last summer. The youngster joined from Fenerbahce for a fee of €20 million and was regarded as one of the best young talents in Europe.

Many expected Guler to follow the example of Jude Bellingham and become an instant hit at the Bernabeu.

Guler’s struggles at Real Madrid

However, with just one month remaining before the season comes to an end, it is fair to say that Guler has endured a tough season at the Bernabeu.

The Turkish international is yet to even muster 100 minutes of action this season. His progress was largely halted by injuries, but it must be noted that the player has been fit since the start of the year.

Yet, Guler has featured in only 31 minutes of league action, with a goal against Celta Vigo being his most notable contribution.

Juni Calafat surprised at Guler’s lack of gametime

In light of Guler’s struggles this season, a report from Rodra P (h/t Madrid Xtra) suggests Real Madrid’s chief scout, Juni Calafat, is surprised at Guler’s lack of opportunities this season.

Calafat, who was crucial in unearthing talents such as Vinicius Junior, Rodrygo and Federico Valverde, is one of the great supporters of Guler.

But he is surprised with the way Carlo Ancelotti has handled Guler, not giving him enough opportunities to impress.

In fact, Guler’s struggles this season have led many to conspire about his future. A loan move has been suggested and there are no shortage of suitors either.

Ancelotti, for his part, has maintained that Guler is getting better physically. It appears the Italian is practising caution with the youngster, especially given his injury-related struggles during the first half of the campaign.

Following Real Madrid’s win over Barcelona, though, Guler will be hoping for more frequent opportunities in the league, as Ancelotti keeps one eye on the Champions League.
