La Liga champions Real Madrid reportedly want to quickly finalise a deal for in-demand 16-year-old Brazilian wonderkid Endrick.
According to a report by Spanish publication MARCA, signing Endrick is a priority for Real Madrid. The reigning La Liga champions have sent a representative to Brazil to negotiate a deal for the in-demand Sao Paulo wonderkid. They want to wrap up the signing as soon as possible.
Endrick has become one of the most highly sought-after prodigies in the world this year. The teenage wonderkid first rose to prominence due to his exploits at Copinha, one of the most prestigious youth competitions across the globe. And his stock has continued to skyrocket since breaking into the first-team squad.
The 16-year-old has amassed three goals and one assist in five appearances in all competitions. And Endrick has popped up on the radars of some of Europe’s most high-profile clubs due to his exploits. La Liga champions Real Madrid are reportedly one of the prospective suitors for the Brazilian wonderkid.
Endrick emerged as a target for Real Madrid earlier this year, and they have closely monitored his progress since then. Recent reports have claimed that the Merengues are preparing an offer to sign the in-demand whizkid. And the interest in the player is understandable, considering Karim Benzema’s advancing years.
The French striker has been in the form of his life for the last few years. But Benzema has struggled with fitness issues in the ongoing season, forcing him to miss several games. Real Madrid will thus need to lay down a succession plan for the veteran striker, with Endrick a viable target.
Recent reports have claimed that Endrick is keen on joining Real Madrid. And the reigning La Liga champions want to finalise the deal for the in-demand Brazilian wonderkid soon. They have sent a representative to Brazil to negotiate a deal with Sao Paulo.
Several other European bigwigs, including Paris Saint-Germain, are also keen on signing Endrick. It will be interesting to see if Real Madrid’s decision to accelerate the deal for the 16-year-old prodigy pays off in due course.
