As reported by Sky Germany’s Florian Plettenberg, Palmeiras forward Endrick (16) wants to sign his pre-contract agreement with Real Madrid in the next 10-14 days, which will be valid from 2024.
This comes after Fabrizio Romano reported earlier in the week that Endrick had reached a verbal agreement with the Spanish club, who will pay a reported €60m to Palmeiras plus €12m in taxes. The fee includes bonuses such as winning the Ballon d’Or.
Endrick – born in 2006 – is regarded as one of the best talents in world football. The Brazilian forward has represented his national team at U17 level, scoring five goals in four games and also has 10 goals contributions (9 goals, 1 assist) in 16 games across all competitions for Palmeiras this season.
Per Plettenberg, Carlo Ancelotti met Endrick several months ago. The 16-year-old wants to join Real Madrid because of Cristiano Ronaldo, and would become the latest Brazilian to switch to Real, following in the footsteps of Vinícius Júnior and Rodrygo.
