Transfer market expert Fabrizio Romano has relayed that Palmeiras expressed their desire to retain Endrick until January. 

In their communication with Real Madrid, they highlighted the presence of Rodrygo, Vinicius Jr, and Kylian Mbappe, among others, in their squad. Nevertheless, Real Madrid rebuffed their plea, demonstrating eagerness to incorporate Endrick into their setup.

It is to ne noted that contrary to prevalent media speculation, Real Madrid harbour no intention of loaning out Endrick. 

He will neither return to Palmeiras until December nor be relegated to the youth team. Real Madrid have articulated their stance firmly, affirming that the young Brazilian will undergo training with the senior team and will be afforded opportunities as they arise.

Back in March, Romano mentioned that signing Endrick from Palmeiras was not easy for Real Madrid, as they faced serious competition for the young forward.

The journalist said that Paris Saint-Germain had a bid rejected for Endrick and even Chelsea invited him and his family to London to visit the club’s facilities. Eventually, it was the player’s decision that gave Real Madrid the edge.

“It is important to mention one behind-the-scenes instance involving Endrick and Real Madrid. Endrick was not an easy signing for Real Madrid. Juni Calafat made the difference,” said Romano.

“With Endrick it was really complicated because Paris Saint-Germain were really pushing to sign him and they even had a bid rejected for him. 

“Then there were Chelsea. They invited Endrick’s parents and family to London. It was a concrete negotiation, but they decided not to spend crazy money on his transfer.

“For Endrick, he always wanted to play for Real Madrid as he believed he could make history at the club,” he explained. 

Endrick will officially sign for Real Madrid in July 2024, when he turns 18. Real Madrid will pay Palmeiras a fixed sum of €35 million, with the remaining €25 million subject to achieving specific sporting objectives

Real Madrid are confident that Kylian Mbappe will not participate in the Paris Olympic Games, and as a result, they expect him to join their preseason squad in August, according to a striking report from SPORT.

The club has made it clear that they will not make any exceptions for Mbappe, nor will they treat him as a “special case” who can participate in both the Euro Cup and the Olympic Games, which are generally meant for younger athletes.

It is important to highlight that Real Madrid president, Florentino Perez, is currently in Paris for a FIFA event. This event will give him the opportunity to meet with French President Emmanuel Macron and discuss the potential transfer of Mbappe.

One of Perez’s main interests is to bring the French star to Real Madrid as soon as possible. Ideally, this would be after the European Championship in Germany, which runs from June 14 to July 14, followed by a short vacation.

This is why Mbappe would be expected to join the team only in August.

No Mbappe is Paris Olympics

Interestingly, this plan would be disrupted if Mbappe were to compete in the Paris Olympic Games. 

While participating in the Olympics would be highly appealing to the French capital and could even boost Mbappe’s popularity among his fellow countrymen, Real Madrid sources believe that he will skip the Olympics.

For now, Real Madrid’s confidence that Mbappe will not participate in the Olympics means they are planning for him to join the team for the preseason in August.

Meanwhile, as the situation is still developing, Perez’s trip to Paris for FIFA’s 120th Anniversary appears to be yielding results, paving the way for Mbappe’s anticipated move to Real Madrid.

While everything related to the transfer is on track, the official announcement is pending followed by the presentation.
