Real Madrid, much like several other top clubs in Europe, are hot in pursuit of Brazilian wonderkid Endrick. The 16-year-old is making waves with Palmeiras and is set for a big-money move to a Europan giant as soon as he turns 18 in 2024.

Currently, PSG are in pole position to get his signature as they are already lining up a second bid for the player after the Brazilian club rejected their first offer of €45 million.

Madrid, meanwhile, are biding their time, and are not ready to make any hurried moves for the player. They do have different tactics to cement their place properly in the race, though.

According to transfer specialist Fabrizio Romano (h/t BernabeuDigital), Madrid have promised to Endrick that if the move to sign him goes through in 2024, they will immediately make him a first-team member.

He will not be a part of Real Madrid Castilla, and will be given a senior squad number.

This decision is more than understandable, too, since the move is expected to cost any team €60 million, at the very least.

Los Blancos have signed a fair few players from Brazil in the recent past, with the likes of Vinicius Jr, Rodrygo, and Renier Jesus standing out. All three of them were sent to the reserve team to develop before getting senior call-ups.

Vinicius, especially, has turned out to be a standout performer for both club and country. His 2021/22 season was one for the ages, as he scored 17 goals and assisted ten times in the league en route domestic success.

Rodrygo, too, has become an essential part of the Madrid squad, playing second fiddle across the attack, with Vinicius, Karim Benzema, and Federico Valverde forming the first-choice trident.

Endrick’s potential has been largely rated higher than both Vini and Rodrygo, and if he can replicate their success consistently, the move will be a success.

Following a solid end to his debut campaign at Real Madrid, Arda Guler is all set to play a key part for Turkey at the UEFA Euro 2024.

The 19-year-old wonderkid struggled with injuries during the first half of the last season at Real Madrid but eventually made the most of his chances towards the final phase of the campaign.

All in all, Guler finished the 2023/24 season with a tally of six goals from 12 matches, winning La Liga, Spanish Super Cup, and the UEFA Champions League.

Ahead of their Euro opener against Georgia next week, Turkey manager Vincenzo Montella gave an insight into how he plans to use the Real Madrid youngster – whether as a starter or from the bench, and his position.

“Arda generally played on the right wing in both Fenerbahçe and Real Madrid. If he played alone, he could be number ten, but for now, he seems to be closer to playing on the right wing,” said Montella (h/t Sporx).

On whether Guler is ready to start in the major European tournament, he added: “The most important thing is to be able to establish balance well. He played well in the last match, and we have the desire to start with him. However, I am still in the decision stage.”

So far, Guler has made seven appearances for the Turkish national team, in which he has netted one goal. And, he will be looking forward to adding to that tally at the Euros, whether he starts as a right-winger or a No. 10.
