Father of Real Madrid target Endrick provides future update

It has been assured that ‘nothing is decided’ as of yet


The father of in-demand Palmeiras starlet Endrick has, on Friday, provided an insight into his son’s future.

The name of Brazilian sensation Endrick has of course long taken its name front and centre in the headlines across Europe.

This comes with the attacker, despite being just 16 years of age, having piqued the attentions of a number of the continent’s biggest clubs.

To this point, it is Spanish and European champions Real Madrid, though, who have been most widely tipped to actually land Endrick.

Los Blancos, of course, have a stellar recent track record when it comes to developing young Brazilian talents, as evidenced by the ever-increasing influence of Vinicius Jr. and Rodrygo.

Some outlets in Spain went as far as to claim earlier this week that directors from the Bernabeu had flown out to Sao Paulo, in a bid to beat out the competition, and close an early deal with their counterparts at Palmeiras.

Speaking to the media on Friday, it therefore came as little surprise when the subject of the prodigious young forward’s future was put to none other than Endrick’s father, Douglas.

During a discussion with transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, though, Douglas was keen to play down any suggestions that an agreement with Real Madrid is close to completion.

Instead, it was assured that he and Endrick have ‘no preference’ as of yet, leaving the race for the Brazilian youth international’s services wide open:
