Endrick, The Brazilian Wonderkid has emerge on the radar of top European clubs and would likely be on the move come the summer.
The Palmerias youngster has been in great form for his side at the youth level and was the star in the cophina tournament, one of the most prestigious competition for youth players in America, he scored a total of six goals in seven matches and also scored a solitary goal in the final.
The 15-year-old Brazilian Wonderkid meteoric rise in south America has attracted attention from top clubs around europe including Manchester city, Real Madrid, Barcelona, Chelsea and a host of others.
Endrick, who is being compared to his legendary compatriot Ronaldo, had reportedly scored 165 goals in 169 games for Palmeiras at youth level ahead of Copinha 2022.And not only does he appear to be a great goalscorer, he’s also a scorer of great goals.
While Endrick is still a minor at age 15years ,non of the top teams going after signature can bring him to europe until he turns 18years, although attempts are being made to lure him to sign a pre-contract agreement when he comes of age.
As of now both Real Madrid and Barcelona are not treating his signing as a priority at this point,with the fomer working on a deal to sign Kylian Mbape and Erling Haaland.The Catalans are also chasing the Norwegian but have recently given up on his signing due to heavyweight like Manchester city who have offered the player more attractive financial package.
Chelsea are unlikely to make a move on the young sensation after Roman Abrahmovich sanctioned by the UK Government and all his accounts are freezed, which has affected the club seriously.
Given Barca current predicament,it remains unlikely that the club would go for the Brazilian who have been dubbed the new Neymar, but the club are chasing a marquee signing to lead their attack and Endrick is one to watch out for in the future.
Manchester city recently completed the signing of Savinho and they have in thier ranks young Brazilian such as Kaky who they signed last summer and also Metinho both players have been drafted into the Manchester city youth academy and would hope to follow in the footsteps of Phil Foden and Cole palmer whom have been given first team opportunities, so the signing of Endrick does not look likely for the citizens who are always linked to the best players in the world.
There is no doubt that the young Brazilian is still inexperience and would need time to adapt to European football. Endrick boasts 325,000 followers on Instagram, while Nike have already managed to strike a deal with the Brazilian youngster according to his bio.
That would appear to be smart business because we might be looking at football’s next phenomenon.
