Though the focus of the footballing world is largely on the ongoing FIFA World Cup in Qatar, some rapid developments are going on at the offices of Santiago Bernabeu. Jude Bellingham, who seemed set to be the club’s marquee signing this summer, is slowly fading out of the transfer plans. Meanwhile, talks on Endrick’s front are progressing swiftly.

Los Blancos were competing with the likes of PSG and Chelsea, who made big attempts to lure the player in recent weeks. However, the situation is said to have turned.

According to reports from Fabrizio Romano, Paris Saint-Germain have left the race for the Brazilian starlet. The French side had offered €58 million to Palmeiras for Endrick after discussing terms with the Brazilian side.

The deal was worth €93 million in total, also including a €35 million fee for their young talent Estevao. However, the Palmeiras president rejected the deal and PSG have left the race since.

This comes as a big boost to Real Madrid, for they are now front runners to win the forward’s signing.

Romano adds that talks between the European Champions and Endrick are in the final stages with the parties also agreeing personal terms. The full package will be worth close to €72 million for the teenage forward sensation alone.

With the contracts and documents all sorted, it seems only a matter of time before Endrick’s capture is made official.

The player had a special love for Real Madrid and prefers to join Carlo Ancelotti’s side over any other side that tried to sign him including Barcelona, Chelsea and PSG. This is what has helped the Spanish champions get the front foot.

Nevertheless, Endrick, 16, cannot make the move to Europe until he turns 18 years of age. With the pre-contract signed, however, his future with Los Blancos will be set in stone.

Paris Saint-Germain manager Luis Enrique has asked for patience regarding Kylian Mbappe’s future, saying that everyone must wait for the player and PSG to make an official announcement.

Now that the Ligue 1 team has qualified for the UEFA Champions League semi-final, the player is rightly expected to focus on the continental glory, keeping aside his impending move to Real Madrid.

Speaking after his side’s 4-1 win over Barcelona in the UCL quarter-final, Enrique said that he cannot comment on anything unless Mbappe himself releases a statement.

“Let’s wait for Kylian to speak about his future. When Mbappe and PSG will speak in public, we will see,” said Enrique as quoted by Fabrizio Romano.

“It’s like a process. Until Mbappe goes and speaks in public, I’m just here waiting and staying silent,” he added.

What’s going on with Mbappe?

Mbappe’s time with PSG is coming to an end as his contract expires this season, and if reports are to be believed, he has chosen to depart as a free agent.

Reports suggest he is set to join Real Madrid, with rumours of a contract already in place.

Now, it was suggested that PSG’s elimination from the Champions League could have hastened the process, potentially bringing Mbappe’s move to Madrid closer. 

However, their qualification for the semi-final, and the chance of facing Real Madrid in the final, mean any official announcement will likely be delayed.

As for the player, he revealed after the match that his future will not change even if PSG go on to win the UEFA Champions League. 

“Playing for the team from my country’s capital is very special, I dreamed of these play-offs when I came to PSG. It’s a great day for the club,” said the forward.
