Real Madrid have found themselves in a spot of bother late in the transfer window, following the untimely injuries to Thibaut Courtois and Eder Militao.

The club have roped in Kepa Arrizabalaga to replace Courtois, but are said to be not looking for a replacement for Militao.

In the meantime, though, the club are set to receive a small financial boost, which may aid them in their endeavours in the market.

Real Madrid stand to gain from De Frutos’ sale

According to Mundo Deportivo, Real Madrid are expected to receive a small financial boost from the sale of Jorge de Frutos.

The right winger has recently joined Rayo Vallecano in a deal worth €8 million, half of which could go to Real Madrid.

This is because Los Blancos had reserved 50% of the player’s rights when they sold De Frutos to Levante for €2 million in 2020.

De Frutos came through the youth ranks at Real Madrid and went on to play close to 40 matches for the Castilla outfit. But he failed to make a single competitive appearance for Los Blancos senior team.

Some other reports suggest that De Frutos’ transfer to Rayo Vallecano could be worth €4.5 million, in which case Real Madrid would stand to receive just a little over €2 million.

A common strategy for Real Madrid

Although the €4 million financial boost is unlikely to impact Real Madrid’s transfer plans for the coming weeks, it is a strategy the club have used heavily in recent years.

The Spanish giants have retained 50% rights of young players leaving the club or the academy, in search of regular minutes elsewhere.

The club have done so for players such as Sergio Arribas, Carlos Dotor, and Antonio Blanco in recent times. This strategy allows them to either earn profit on the future sale of these individuals or sign them back on a cut-price deal.

Real Madrid were able to do the latter when they brought back Fran Garcia for a fee of just €5 million earlier in the year.

Real Madrid’s attacking unit has been crippled by the loss of Karim Benzema earlier in the summer, which was followed by the loss of Vinicius Jr due to injury.

Although Vinicius has returned, there is much left to be desired from the Madrid frontline as we progress through to the season.

Real Madrid, though, are waiting on the arrival of Endrick. The young Brazilian is set to join the Real Madrid squad in the summer of 2024 when he turns 18.

Real Madrid impressed by Endrick

Endrick has already started his preparation for his pending move to Santiago Bernabeu, having performed exceptionally well in his native Brazil this year.

The youngster is constantly working on his game, in order to further improve himself as an attacker. It has left Real Madrid quite happy and eager for his arrival, reports Fabrizio Romano.

The journalist claims that Real Madrid have been keeping close tabs on everything Endrick has been doing, on and off the pitch, at Palmeiras.

And they have received very good reports on the 17-year-old, with the club impressed by how he is putting efforts to improve himself both performance-wise and in other facets.

Despite there being some question marks over his performances, the teenage forward is starting to showcase his potential, having scored five goals in five starts for Palmeiras.

Endrick also learning new languages

Endrick is not only just working on his performance. In fact, the Brazilian is also learning other languages in order to quickly settle into life in Spain.

The youngster can speak Portuguese, but he may have to master Spanish during his time at Santiago Bernabeu.

As mentioned earlier, Endrick can already speak Portuguese, which should go a long way in helping him team up with fellow Brazilians Vinicius Jr and Rodrygo.

Even Eder Militao can speak Portuguese, which should make it easier for Endrick to adapt to life in Spain, at least for the next year or so.
