Endrick to Real Madrid: Full verbal agreement in place for €60m

Real Madrid beat Barcelona, PSG, and Chelsea to “sign Brazilian wonderkid Endrick in a £51m deal,” but the 16-year-old Palmeiras star will not move to the Bernabeu until July 2024. 

Many of Europe’s biggest clubs have been linked to the teen sensation, who is seen as a generational talent in his home country. However, Los Blancos are thought to have closed the deal. 

According to Italian football journalist Fabrizio Romano, the deal will be worth £62 million plus £10 million in taxes. 

In a £51 million deal, Real Madrid beat out Barcelona, PSG, and Chelsea to sign Brazilian Endrick. 

The 16-year-old Palmeiras star won’t move to Bernabeu until he turns 18 in July 2024. 

Endrick can’t move until he’s 18 years old, which won’t happen until 2024. The deal should be signed officially in the next few days, as there is a “full verbal agreement” between the clubs and the player. 

It happened after Madrid reportedly agreed not to go after another star player, Erling Haaland, in order to get Endrick. 

It is said that one of the Brazilian’s party’s top priorities is to have a “clear path for the future.” Haaland is seen as someone who could get in his way if both strikers played at the Santiago Bernabeu in the future.

It was also agreed that Endrick’s parents would be invited to the club so they could see what it will be like for their son to move to one of the biggest clubs in the world. They also went to Brazil to see Endrick play in his first games as a pro. 

The 16-year-old made his professional debut for Palmeiras in October. Since then, football teams all over the world have shown interest in him. Last month, PSG reportedly had a £40 million offer for the forward turned down. 

Chelsea also wanted to sign Endrick. In January, fellow Brazilian Thiago Silva showed the teen and his family around the training facilities to try to convince him to move to the Premier League team. 

Palmeiras has never had a player younger than the left-footed forward, who made his debut when he was 16 years and 16 days old. 

Last month, Xavi Hernandez, the manager of Barcelona, said that the club was also in talks to sign the Palmeiras starlet. 

Endrick first caught the attention of scouts from all over the world when he scored 165 goals in 169 games for Palmeiras’ youth team. He has already scored five goals in four games for his country’s U-16 team. 

The left-footed forward made his debut for Palmeiras when he was 16 years and 16 days old. He has already scored three goals for the club in Brazil’s top league. 

Madrid similarly signed a then 16-year-old Vinicius Jr from Flamengo in a deal worth €39m in 2017, making him the second most expensive signing from the Brazilian league in history. And in 2018, Los Blancos went on to sign 17-year-old Rodrygo from Santos.
