With Endrick making waves with his performances for Palmeiras in Brazil, a lot of clubs in Europe have taken note of the teenage striker’s potential and promise.

Real Madrid are one of the clubs showing the most interest in the 16-year-old while the likes of Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona are also in the hunt for his signing.

However, according to MARCA, as things stand, Real Madrid are the best-placed team to secure the signing of Endrick from Palmeiras.

A product of the Brazilian club’s youth setup, the teenage centre-forward shone brightly with the youth teams before making his first-team debut about a month ago. He has already netted three senior goals in five matches, showcasing amazing potential.

Real Madrid have already begun laying the groundwork to sign Endrick, with recent reports suggesting that the Spanish capital club had already sent an executive to Brazil to start negotiations over a move for the teenage striker.

However, PSG have also been pushing to sign him, while more recently Chelsea also made their move for the prodigious talent, hosting him and his family at their training facility where he interacted with veteran defender and Brazil legend Thiago Silva.

Despite these developments, it is believed that Real Madrid remain the best-placed club to sign Endrick.

The teenager is still 16, meaning he will only be able to arrive in Europe in 2024 when he turns 18 years old. His contract with Palmeiras runs until 2025 and is said to contain a release clause that could rise up to €60 million based on his first-team appearances.

So, signing him will taken a significant investment from any club and whether Real Madrid are ready to splash the cash and do so before clubs like Chelsea and PSG act remains to be seen.

    It is a pity that i don’t know how things are managed at Real Madrid with concerning scouting of players but to me it looks like the officials concerned are dragging their feet when coming to sign payers.
    It looks you always happy to be in a situation where you scramble for a player(s) with other teams.
    Well i can only say desist from your pride and act as soon as it allows to go for signings,do not think players will be on their knees praying “when will Real Madrid come my way and signed me” no,they will join other team and will punish you,like that guy of Rayo Vellacano,who you now see him to be a player.You have too much pride which will lead you no where.

Real Madrid have been greeted with some positive news on the injury front as goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois is expected to be fit and ready for the upcoming La Liga clash against Real Valladolid.

The 30-year-old custodian had flown away for national team duty with Belgium and played the full game against Sweden last week. However, the Real Madrid ace was sent back to the club over the weekend due to a minor adductor strain.

This raised concerns over the former Chelsea star’s condition, especially with a busy period lying ahead for the Merengues.

However, Mario Cortegana of The Athletic has eased any nerves surrounding his situation, reporting that Courtois was subjected to tests upon returning to Spain and there is no reason for worry.

The report states that Real Madrid expect their No. 1 to be fit and available for their next game which will be against Real Valladolid in La Liga on April 2, Sunday.

It is further stated that the knock Courtois sustained was not a new one and that the 30-year-old had felt discomfort in the same area during Los Blancos’ UEFA Champions League Round of 16 second-leg tie against Liverpool at the Santiago Bernabeu earlier this month.

Courtois has featured 32 times across all competitions this term, having missed a few matches due to fitness issues. He has managed just ten clean sheets and will be hoping to add to that against Valladolid, now that is reportedly fit to feature at the weekend.

In another boost, reports earlier today indicated that Toni Kroos does not have any injury after concerns were raised due to the midfielder doing individual training sessions over the past week.
