Real Madrid want to build an all-Brazilian attacking trifecta for the future

Real Madrid have been in the news lately, in light of their pursuit of several star players across Europe including attacking sensation Erling Haaland.

The Merengues reportedly will target the Manchester City forward in 2024 when his release clause worth €180 million can be activated. The Norwegian international has reportedly been identified as the ideal long-term replacement for Karim Benzema.

However, according to Tomas Gonzalez-Martin, Real Madrid are not looking into European options, in their quest to find a replacement for Benzema.

As a matter of fact, the Spanish and European champions are looking at the prospect of an all-Brazilian attacking lineup for the future, with Endrick emerging as their top target to partner his compatriots Rodrygo Goes and Vinicius Jr.

Currently regarded as one of the most talented young players in world football, Endrick has enjoyed a rapid rise to prominence at Palmeiras this year. Despite only being 16, the attacker has already made his professional breakthrough and it is only a matter of time before he gets hired by a top European outfit.

Real Madrid are among the clubs keen on securing the services of Endrick. The 16-year-old, though not eligible to move to Europe until 2024, could help Los Blancos build an all-Brazilian attacking trifecta, including him, Rodrygo and Vinicius.

While Vinicius and Rodrygo have both earned their place in the senior side, Real Madrid are banking on Endrick to follow suit as soon as he steps foot in Europe.

However, with Palmeiras holding out for a fortune, luring Endrick away from Brazil could prove to be a tricky task. A lot will come down on whether or not Los Blancos are willing to splash the cash on the 16-year-old, who has been valued at up to €60 million.

Real Madrid could be in trouble with RFEF if too many Spanish players leave



It is astounding that despite being the biggest club in Spain, Real Madrid do not have many Spanish players to show for it.

Los Blancos do indeed boast of a special diversity in the dressing room, but their lack of locally trained players could pose problems according to MARCA.

The Spanish outlet confirms that UEFA does not mandate the inclusion of any minimum number of locally grown players for a club. However, the Spanish federation stipulates that a club in Spain must boast of at least eight players who meet a specific set of conditions.

Of the aforementioned eight candidates, there must be at least four players who have spent three seasons or 36 months at the club between the ages of 15 and 21.

Currently, only Nacho Fernandez, Dani Carvajal, Lucas Vazquez, Federico Valverde, Vinicius Jr, Rodrygo and Mariano make up the required number on that front.

The problem, however, arises with the condition for the other four players in the list of eight. RFEF stipulates that the second set of four players must have completed at least 36 months in teams attached to the federation of Spain between the ages of 15 and 21.

Only Jesus Vallejo, Alvaro Odriozola, Marco Asensio and Dani Ceballos tick the aforementioned box. However, all four players have uncertain futures at the club and are well-placed to depart in the summer.

There are thus big decisions to be taken over the transfer strategy for June. Real Madrid can work ways to ship all four players out, it would require the re-integration of players like Sergio Arribas, Miguel Gutierrez or Fran Garcia to ensure the fulfilment of the criteria.

With both Vallejo and Odriozola seemingly frozen out of Ancelotti’s plans, their departures from Santiago Bernabeu appear inevitable. Thus, the management could be forced to renew one of Asensio or Ceballos come June.
