Real Madrid agrees to sign Palmeiras’ centre-forward Endrick

La Liga giants Real Madrid have agreed to sign Brazilian wonderkid Endrick from Palmeiras on a five-year deal, as per an ESPN report. The deal, worth €72 million, will see the teenage striker move to Spain in 2024.

As per the report, Madrid have agreed to pay Endrick’s release clause of €60 million and are also paying an extra €12 million to cover the taxes required by Spanish authorities when a Brazilian footballer moves to La Liga. Real Madrid are using the same strategy that helped them get Vinicius Junior, another Brazilian attacker, back in 2017.

The official announcement depends on Endrick signing the contract, and other details thought to be formalities, given that both sides have agreed on the terms of the transfer.

Endrick, who plays for Palmeiras, helped the Sao Paulo team win this year’s Brasileirao title. He also became the youngest goalscorer in the club’s history when he scored twice against Athletico Paranaense.

South Korea’s manager Paulo Bento resigns following Brazil loss

Following a massive 4-1 loss in the Round of 16 match against Brazil, South Korea’s manager Paulo Bento has confirmed that he has resigned from the high-profile position.

The Selecao killed the game for the South Koreans with an unassailable 4-goal lead before the first-half whistle. However, the South Koreans got one back with a stunning strike from Seung-Ho Paik in the 76th minute.

Bento has confirmed his decision in the post-match announcement. “I have just announced to the players and the president of the federation that this is a decision I took in September. It is set in stone, and I have confirmed it. I have to thank everyone for everything they have done,” he said.

He further added, “From now onwards, we have to think about the future. I’m going to rest, and we have to see what will happen after I rest.”

South Korea blew hot and cold at the FIFA World Cup. Starting their campaign, the Asians played a goalless draw against Uruguay and a dramatic 3-2 loss to Ghana, which saw their manager Bento being sent off. The South Koreans then beat title contenders Portugal 2-1 in their final group stage game to qualify for the Round of 16.
