According to Mario Cortegana, while writing for The Athletic, young Brazilian talent Endrick will sign his contract with the Spanish club on July 21 and will be officially introduced to the fans on July 26. 

Both of these events will take place in Madrid, and there is a possibility that the presentation will be held at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium, allowing fans to witness the moment in person. 

He will then join Real Madrid for their upcoming tour in the United States. 

It is expected that he will don the number 16 jersey for the next season, a significant step as he begins his journey with one of the world’s most prestigious football clubs.

History awaits Endrick

It must be noted that Real Madrid secured Endrick’s transfer from Brazilian club Palmeiras for an initial fee of €35 million, with an additional €25 million in potential bonuses. 

This significant investment reflects the club’s belief in his potential and the impact he could have on their future success.

Endrick’s introduction to Real Madrid will come on the heels of another major signing, Kylian Mbappe. The French superstar is set to be unveiled as a Real Madrid player on July 16, right after the European Championship concludes. 

Focus on Copa America, for now!

Currently, Endrick is representing Brazil at the Copa America, where they are set to kick off their campaign against Costa Rica on Monday. This international experience will undoubtedly contribute to his growth and readiness as he prepares to join his new team.

In Madrid, there is a palpable sense of excitement surrounding Endrick’s potential contributions to the team. 

With fierce competition for attacking positions, it is clear that Endrick might not immediately become the first-choice number 9. 

However, his rapid development and impressive performances suggest that it wouldn’t be surprising if he earns that spot within a year.

Joining Real Madrid will provide Endrick with an unparalleled opportunity to further hone his skills and develop his game. 

Even though Mbappe’s presence might limit his playing time initially, the environment at Real Madrid are expected to help him grow as a player.

Just in: Real Madrid’s defensive target picks up fresh injury

Real Madrid are in active negotiations with LOSC Lille for the transfer of Leny Yoro. After weeks of impasse, the club appear to have made some ground in the race to sign the Frenchman.

However, should the Yoro deal fall through in the coming weeks, Real Madrid have identified Lazio’s Mario Gila as the ideal alternative.

Formerly of RM Castilla, Gila currently plies his trade for Lazio and has emerged as a key defensive lynchpin for the Italian outfit, impressing onlookers with his technique and discipline.

Mario Gila picks up fresh injury

However, in a major development, it appears Mario Gila has picked up a fresh injury during training, reports Diario AS.

In the pre-season camp at Auronzo di Cadore, Gila appears to have fractured his left foot and could be out for several weeks.

Lazio confirmed the defender’s injury, stating, “Mario Gila underwent clinical and instrumental examinations which revealed a fracture of the phalanx of the big toe of his left foot, suffered during training.”

Gila has started taking the appropriate treatment and the extent of his injury will be known soon. However, as things stand, the defender could be out for at least the next few weeks.

What does this mean for Real Madrid?

Mario Gila’s fresh injury setback is sure to dwindle any hopes of a potential return to Real Madrid this summer.

In any case, Gila’s chances of returning to Santiago Bernabeu were slim given that Real Madrid have finally made some ground in the deal to sign top defensive target Leny Yoro.

Los Blancos, though, would have liked having someone like Gila available as an alternative, especially with LOSC Lille still demanding a fortune for the Frenchman.

Unfortunately, that might not be an option anymore, no thanks to Gila’s injury. The club, though, will keep a close eye on the Spaniard’s injury situation, knowing he could return to fitness before the end of the summer break.
