Endrick appears to be one of the main talents in Brazilian football, as a lot of the big clubs are following him closely, who have to wait until 2024 to sign him as a minimum because that is when he becomes 18. With this in mind, Real Madrid, one of the clubs going for him, have agreed to grant him one of his team's more peculiar wishes: to not be there at the same time as Erling Haaland.
'Marca' claim that the youngster wants to have a free run of Madrid. He's conscient that, if he has to play with the Manchester City star when he is still adapting while his 'rival' has already played on the big stage for several years, he would be on the back foot. It is not that he is scared of compeition, but that he understands that it would not be a good choice to put himself in that position.
But why have the Real Madrid board said yes? Because they do not think that getting the Norwegian in in the next two years is a priority, despite having the famous release clause. In the British press, they are speculating that he is earning €1 million per week. What is more, the Madrid scouts do not think it is as good an option as it seems due to his injuries. In any event, what he would cost them is much more important.
'Marca' also mentioned that Endrick's personal team have already met Real Madrid. The footballer's family already know the environment in which the young talent would develop in footballing terms, who would have the best equipment to try and improve. In order to get the deal done, they will need around €60 million, which is the price tag that Palmeiras have put on him.
