Palmeiras’ recent game against Coritiba saw Endrick making his much-awaited professional debut. The 16-year-old came on as a substitute in the 4-0 win, becoming the youngster player to represent Palmeiras in professional football.

According to 90 Min, Real Madrid scouts were among the ones in attendance during Endrick’s debut. The reigning European champions have been tracking the youngster for quite some time now, and are keen on securing his services in the near future.

The report suggests Real Madrid have subsequently held talks with Palmeiras over the youngster’s potential move to Santiago Bernabeu.

The club believe they have convinced the 16-year-old that his future lies in the Spanish capital. However, they are yet to reach an agreement with Palmeiras, while they are also expected to face stiff competition from other clubs such as FC Barcelona.

Although Real Madrid are believed to be the front-runner in the race to sign the attacker, no details have been sorted just yet.

After failing to sign Neymar in 2013, Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has no desire to miss out on signing another Brazilian whizkid. Endrick, to that end, has emerged as the transfer priority.

Despite being only 16, many expect Endrick to make his professional breakthrough in the near future. However, FIFA rules dictate that the youngster cannot move to Europe until he is 18, meaning the player will remain at Palmeiras for the next couple of years, irrespective of Real Madrid’s negotiations with the Brazilian outfit.

Ancelotti devises plan to prepare Real Madrid defensive ace for Bayern Munich clash

Eder Militao has charted a remarkable recovery to return from an ACL injury he suffered on the first day of the 2023/24 season.

The Brazilian international came back to action in late March, featuring for a couple of minutes against Athletic Club – the very team against whom he had sustained the injury.

Following that, the centre-back has also featured sparingly in games against Mallorca and Manchester City, although he is yet to start a game.

Ancelotti has plan for Militao

Now, AS reports that Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti has devised a plan for Militao to be ready to go when the team face Bayern Munich later this month in the UEFA Champions League semifinal first leg.

Militao is expected to play an important role in the Champions League semi-finals. The coaching staff is counting on him to reinforce the team’s defensive capabilities.

The first phase of his reintegration into the dynamics of the competition, which was more psychological than physical, has already been completed.

Ancelotti, who has now drawn up a special plan to give him minutes in order to get him ready (physically) for the semi-finals.

First Militao will be used in the Clásico today, depending on how the game goes. Then against Real Sociedad next week, on this occasion, the Brazilian could even likely be a starter.

At centre-back or right-back

Militao will have options to play against Bayern Munich in the centre of defence, alongside Antonio Rudiger, but also at right-back, as Dani Carvajal will miss the game because he picked up his third yellow card of the season at the Etihad.

It will all depend on how the Brazilian performs in the two remaining games against Barça and Real Sociedad before the UCL semi-final first leg on 30 April.

For the second leg, on 8 May, at the Bernabeu, Militao will compete on equal terms with the rest of the back four. There will be one more game between the two contests, against Cadiz, for him to get minutes. That’s what Ancelotti is counting on with the Brazilian.
