Real agree deal for 16-year-old Endrick

Real Madrid have agreed to sign 16-year-old Brazilian forward Endrick from Palmeiras.

Endrick will join Real in July 2024 when he turns 18 and stay with Palmeiras in the meantime.

Real have beaten a host of other top European clubs, most notably Chelsea, to the signature of one of the most sought after teenagers in the world.

Endrick's family were hosted by Chelsea at the club's Cobham training ground last month, as they explored a move for the in-demand youngster.

The Palmeiras president Leila Pereira has described this as "the biggest negotiation in the history of Brazilian football".

She added: "Real Madrid's proposal is compatible with Endrick's enormous talent and corresponds to the sporting and financial goals that we have established since the beginning of negotiations"

Real have had success in recent years when investing in Brazil's most promising youngsters, having agreed deals for Vinicius Jr and Rodrygo at a similar age, with both players now first-team regulars.
