Real Madrid have everything agreed to complete the capture of Brazilian wonderkid Endrick but are awaiting the green light from FIFA to officially complete the signing and make an announcement, according to the ever-reliable Fabrizio Romano.

The 16-year-old is regarded as the next best thing coming out of Brazil after his explosion at the Copinha tournament earlier this year. Soon after he signed his first professional contract with Palmeiras in July, Endrick made his senior debut for the Brazilian outfit and made a big impression as well.

Despite his young age, the striker scored three goals and set up one more in seven matches for the first team. His rapid rise alerted several top clubs across Europe. Chelsea and PSG made serious attempts to sign Endrick, but in the end it is Real Madrid who have prevailed in the race.

Earlier reports indicated that Los Blancos would be shelling out a sum in excess of €70 million for Endrick’s signing, which included tax commissions.

But recently it has been reported that Real Madrid will be shelling out €35 million in fixed fees and another €25 million in add-ons for the 16-year-old, who will be signing a three-year contract with an additional three-year extension option.

Everything has been agreed upon between Real Madrid, Palmeiras, and Endrick but an official announcement has yet to arrive.

And Romano is reporting that the hold-up is due to FIFA, who are yet to approve the transfer and sign some documents. However, there are no hitches expected and the journalist claims that an announcement could be made close to Christmas.

While Endrick’s signing will be confirmed soon, the teenage wonderkid will only arrive at Real Madrid in 2024 once he is 18 years old.

Real Madrid are set to welcome two new stars this summer, Kylian Mbappe and Endrick, but the Merengues are keen on further bolstering their squad.

Owing to the embarrassment of riches Real Madrid possess in midfield, replacing Toni Kroos with a new signing in midfield is not seen as an immediate priority.

Nonetheless, interesting opportunities will invariably be evaluated closely and it appears the name of Adrien Rabiot has entered the club’s crosshairs.

Real Madrid not the only ones interested

But, according to Gazzetta dello Sport, Real Madrid face stiff competition from Premier League clubs and Saudi Arabian teams in their pursuit of midfielder Adrien Rabiot.

The French midfielder is set to become a free agent if he chooses not to renew his contract with Juventus, a decision that seems increasingly likely.

Known for his technical prowess and versatility, Rabiot excels at playing multiple roles in midfield and notably thriving as a goal threat with late runs inside the opposition box that tend to catch opponents off guard.

While Real Madrid have no shortage of quality in midfield, Dani Ceballos’ exit could pave the way for the 29-year-old to secure a signing for Los Blancos.

However, Real Madrid would have to outmanoeuvre both the financial prowess of Saudi Arabian teams and the competitive allure of Premier League clubs to secure Rabiot’s signature.

On top of that, Juventus are also not giving up on their efforts to try and renew the contract of the French international.

In any case, Rabiot is unlikely to be a priority target for the club but they will be sure to keep a close eye on how his situation develops.
