Endrick has been no stranger to speculations linking him with a move to Europe recently, with a host of clubs interested in securing his services.

Widely regarded as one of the most talented players to come out of the Brazilian youth ranks, Endrick has raised many eyebrows with his explosive performances this season. At the age of just 16, he has already earned a breakthrough in professional football.

In light of his rapid rise to prominence, Real Madrid are among the clubs weighing up a move for Endrick. Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona are thought to be other clubs interested in his services, with the former even reportedly submitting a €20 million offer.

However, according to Tomas Gonzalez (h/t Madrid Zone), Real Madrid are prepared to beat that figure by forking out a fee of around €35-40 million for Endrick. They feel it is adequate for the Brazilian whizkid, who does prefer a move to Santiago Bernabeu ahead of other clubs.

But luring him away from Palmeiras is not going to be a walk in the park. According to the same report, it appears the Brazilian giants are not happy with the figure Real Madrid are offering and are holding out for a fee of ̉€45 million.

It is quite a fortune for a player who has just made his breakthrough in professional football. But given the youngster’s unmatched potential, Palmeiras believe many clubs will be willing to meet the figure.

Real Madrid are among the clubs in contention to do so. The Whites have already enjoyed immense success with their investment in Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo in recent years, and they could hope that Endrick can follow the same path, in his quest to earn a breakthrough in Europe.

However, the youngster will not be allowed to move to the continent until he is 18, meaning Real Madrid can only accommodate him as part of the first team in 2024.

Following Toni Kroos’ departure and speculation over Nacho Fernandez’s imminent move to Saudi Arabia, the potential contract extension of Luka Modric should serve as a breather of fresh air for Real Madrid fans.

The Croatian international is set to continue for another season at Santiago Bernabeu. His experience and leadership will play a key role in an otherwise young Real Madrid midfield unit.

Numbers behind Modric’s new contract

As Modric gears up for a new contract at Real Madrid, a recent report from Mundo Deportivo has offered details of his new deal at the Bernabeu.

It appears the Croatian international is ready to settle for a pay cut in order to continue at Real Madrid.

During the 2023/24 campaign, Modric’s net salary was around €10 million. However, there will be a substantial 40% reduction in his salary in the new deal.

That means Modric is set to earn around €6 million net salary for the 2024/25 campaign. The terms of the new deal have been approved by the player’s entourage as well.

Set for greatness in 24/25

At the age of 38, Modric has already broken several records, including becoming the oldest player to represent Real Madrid.

But the former Tottenham midfielder could achieve much more in the coming season. If he retires by the end of next season, he will become the oldest player to retire at Real Madrid, at the age of 39. Not to mention, the midfielder will turn 40 in September 2025.

In addition, Modric currently holds six Champions League titles – equalling the tally of the legendary Paco Gento.

If the Croatian ends up winning the UCL title once again, he will create history by becoming the player with the most Champions League titles in the history of football.
