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.
