The highly skilled teenager, who scored his first senior international goals for Brazil against England and Spain during the March international break, is set to join La Liga leaders Real Madrid upon turning 18 in July.

With established talents like Rodrygo and Vinicius Junior already at Santiago Bernabeu, and talks underway for a potential acquisition of World Cup winner Kylian Mbappe, concerns have arisen regarding Endrick’s playing time in the 2024-25 season and the possibility of him benefiting from a loan spell elsewhere.

Speculation has arisen about a return to Palmeiras, but transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has clarified Real Madrid’s intentions for their latest South American prodigy, stating, “Real Madrid never considered an option to loan Endrick to Palmeiras or elsewhere until December, not even sending him to Castilla team. Endrick will play for Real Madrid first team from day 1 in July, as agreed when he signed for the club in December 2022.”

Real Madrid is acquiring Endrick in a deal potentially valued at €60 million (£51m/$65m), with the club renowned for its ‘Galacticos’ recruitment approach aiming to have discovered another global superstar who will thrive while wearing their colors.
