Speaking to UOL Esporte, the father of Palmeiras wonderkid Endrick Felipe has confirmed that the teenager and his family will be paving a visit to Real Madrid’s training facilities at the end of this month.
The 16-year-old striker has emerged as one of the hottest young prospects in the game, with clubs like Chelsea, PSG, Barcelona and Real Madrid taking an interest in the teenage sensation.
Recent reports indicated that Chelsea had emerged as frontrunners to sign Endrick after the striker’s camp had visited their training facilities where he had interacted with Brazilian legend Thiago Silva.
But now, Endrick’s father, Douglas Ramos, has confirmed that the youngster and his family will be visiting Real Madrid’s facilities at the end of this month, following which they will let Los Blancos know of their decision on his choice.
“After the conversations in Madrid, Real Madrid will await a response from us to see if they should come to Sao Paulo and make an offer to Palmeiras,” he said.
Endrick signed his first professional contract with Palmeiras earlier this year in July when he turned 16. The deal includes a release clause worth €60 million, although reports indicated that a deal can be struck for a fee of around €35-40 million.
Even though talks will likely begin imminently and a deal could be finalised in the near future, Endrick will only move to Europe in 2024, once he turns 18 years old.
For now, the 18-year-old will visit Real Madrid later this month and the club will hope to make the most of the tour to convince him to join the club.
