Brazilian wonderkid Endrick turns heads at Europe’s biggest clubs


The very young Endrick (15) is the latest sensation in Brazil. The extremely precocious striker must wait until he is 16 to sign a pre-contract and his majority to leave, but he is already spoiled for choice.

In recent weeks, Real Madrid and FC Barcelona seemed best placed to afford Endrick. Who would you tell us? Endrick Felipe Moreira De Sousa by his full name is the new sensation in Brazil. He is only 15 years old (he was born in 2006) and therefore cannot yet leave Palmeiras where his youth contract ends in 2024, but already, the whole of Europe is at his feet…

No, Stade Rennais did not remain alone for long in this matter. The French club had even sent someone to supervise him at the Copinha de São Paulo, a very high competition among young U20s in Brazil. Inevitably, the Bretons were not alone at the edge of the field and it was in fact the biggest clubs of the old continent who had an eye on him, already seduced by his particularly precocious qualities.

PSG is in the game

It’s very simple, in just 90 minutes spread over three matches, the very young striker scored five times against opponents older than him. With such performances, he was voted player of the tournament hands down, in addition to winning the trophy for the most beautiful goal. Palmeiras sees in him the hen with the golden eggs. His future departure has already been confirmed, but he is not yet 16 and will have to wait until that age to sign a pre-contract.

“The next step is to sign the professional contract with Palmeiras when he turns 16 in July., delays its agent on O Globo these last hours. I have no doubt that it happens. There is no other possibility. He has a training contract, which is valid under Brazilian law. Someone could pay his current clause. But why would he want to leave Palmeiras? The club bet on him” does he wonder?

The reality is also that it will be necessary to wait until the player is 18 for a transfer, that is to say July 21, 2024. Real Madrid, who want to make a new move at Vinicius Junior, and the Barça are on the way but Chelsea and Manchester City have taken the lead in this file, according to Sky Sports. The English media also speaks of interest from Bayern Munich and PSG. To afford it, on the other hand, it will be necessary to pay more than 40 M€, more than the record amount received by Palmeiras during the sale of Gabriel Jesus (around 30M€) to Cityzens in 2016.
