Brazil are set to kickstart their FIFA World Cup campaign later this evening, with Real Madrid trio Eder Militao, Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo expected to play a crucial role in the country’s hopes of reclaiming the coveted title.

And, Real Madrid are focused on roping in more Brazilian talents, with Endrick emerging as one of their top targets in recent weeks.

The Palmeiras whizkid is one of the hottest prospects in world football right now, having enjoyed a major breakthrough in professional football at the age of just 16. Real Madrid are believed to be among the clubs that are keen on luring him to Europe.

A recent report from Fabrizio Romano has offered an update on the future of Endrick as well. The Italian transfer expert suggests Paris Saint-Germain, one of the favourites to sign the youngster, have yet to reach an agreement with Palmeiras.

Even though Endrick’s father had publicly confirmed the bid from PSG, the French giants have not been able to find an agreement with the Brazilian outfit, who are determined to extract the most of their prized asset.

This serves as a major boost for Real Madrid, who still remain in the contest and are one of the clubs in contention to sign the player, even though they are yet to lodge an official bid.

The Spanish giants have enjoyed immense success with Brazilian talents in recent years, with the likes of Vinicius and Rodrygo both becoming integral members of the first-team. Endrick, to that end, could be yet another smart long-term investment for the club.

However, Real Madrid should not rule out the competition from Chelsea, another club involved in this chase. Earlier reports had even claimed that Endrick was keen on playing for the Blues due to the lure of the Premier League, so it will be interesting to see what the future holds of the player.

Now that Nacho is ready to join Al Qadsiah, Real Madrid have decided to ramp up their efforts to sign Lille defender Leny Yoro, reports Jose Felix Diaz via MARCA.

As reported before, Nacho has decided to end his career with the Spanish club as he has agreed to a two-year contract with Al Qadsiah in the Saudi Pro League. With Nacho leaving, Real Madrid now have a spot open in their defence and are eager to fill it with Yoro.

It is important to note that Yoro has attracted a lot of interest from other clubs. Paris Saint-Germain have been particularly active in trying to sign him, offering €60 million for the player. 

Although this offer is close to what Lille wants, Yoro isn’t interested in moving to PSG.

What Yoro is looking forward to is joining Real Madrid. While the player and Real Madrid have a verbal agreement, the deal with Lille still needs to be finalised soon.

What about the transfer fee?

Regarding the transfer fee, Real Madrid are hesitant to match PSG’s €60 million offer because Yoro has only one year left on his contract.

Initially, the club planned to wait until June 30 to begin serious negotiations. However, due to the increasing interest from clubs like PSG, Manchester United, and Liverpool, they might need to speed up the process.

With Nacho leaving, Real Madrid now has the necessary room to strengthen their defence and Yoro fits the bill. 

Madrid already have Yoro in plans

It must be noted that the club’s management, in accordance with Carlo Ancelotti, is already planning next season’s lineup of centre-backs. 

They expect Rafa Marin to leave, so the defensive lineup for coach Carlo Ancelotti is likely to include Eder Militao, Antonio Rudiger, David Alaba, and possibly Yoro if they can complete the negotiations successfully.

Real Madrid are focusing on building a strong defence for the upcoming season. They see Yoro as a valuable addition and are working hard to secure his transfer. 

The next steps involve reaching an agreement with Lille and finalizing the transfer details as soon as possible.
