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.

Speaking in a recent interview with Fichajes.com (h/t GOAL), former Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas has heaped praise on Real Madrid star Aurelien Tchouameni, while also revealing that he recommended the Catalans to sign him in the past.

Tchouameni arrived at Real Madrid this past summer in a deal worth €80 million plus €20 million in add-ons. Following Casemiro’s departure, he was thrust into the limelight right away by Carlo Ancelotti and the 22-year-old has not put a foot wrong since arriving.

Indeed, Tchouameni has become a key player for Ancelotti’s side and is currently starring at the FIFA World Cup 2022 with France.

Now, Fabregas, who had played with Tchouameni at AS Monaco in the past, has hailed the youngster, stating that there are no limits to what he can achieve.

During the chat, he also revealed that he had recommended Tchouameni’s signing to Barcelona but finances prohibited any move from happening.

“Yes, it’s true that I spoke to Barça about Aurelién. They wanted to start preparing the succession of Sergio Busquets and for me he was the perfect player. It was at a time when Barça were short of money and I don’t think they could offer more than €40 million,” he said.

“Then he signed for Real Madrid, he’s a permanent fixture there and he’s essential in the French national team. For me, Aurélien has no limits.”

Opening up on the first time he saw Tchouameni in action, Fabregas added: “I quickly realised he was not a player like the others. The first time I saw him was during a Ligue 1 match against Bordeaux with Monaco.

“I was on the bench and I was impressed with his performance. They beat us and I remember asking one of our assistants: “but who is this Bordeaux midfielder?”, he reminisced.

Fabregas also revealed that he was close with Tchouameni and the youngster sought advice from the former Arsenal captain, saying:

“I spoke a lot with Aurélien, we exchanged a lot of opinions, even when he came to the France national team. He asked me for a lot of advice about my career at clubs like Arsenal, Chelsea, and FC Barcelona,” he said.
