Real Madrid take on four Premier League giants for Spain international with £52m release clause

Headlines continue to rave about the strong possibility that Real Madrid will strengthen their squad with the arrivals of Alphonso Davies and Kylian Mbappe.

Yet amid the whirlwind of transfer activity and high-profile targets, it’s easy to forget the impending arrival of Endrick, who will finally make the big move to the Spanish capital this summer.

Although he signed his contract with Real Madrid some time ago, the Brazilian prodigy’s name seems to have slipped under the radar of many fans.

But given the form he has displayed in recent weeks, the teenage sensation promises to be a top reinforcement for Real Madrid.

Indeed, at the age of 17, Endrick is already busy breaking barriers, as he concluded the last international break with two goals in two games for the Brazilian national team.

Following his exceptional form with Palmeiras and Brazil, the youngster has seen a rise in his transfer value.

South America’s Most Valuable Teenager

Now, after a recent update from Transfermarkt, Endrick’s market value has reached an incredibly impressive figure of €55 million.

The young striker received a €10 million boost, with his market value previously set at €45 million.

With Endrick growing in prominence, with goal contributions against heavyweights like Spain and England, the update is hardly a surprise.

He hopes to increase his market value by following in the footsteps of his compatriots Vinicius and Rodrygo.

Vinicius impressively consolidated a market value of €70 million at just 18 years old, making him the most valuable South American teenager in history.

Endrick will look to follow suit by breaking this record before reaching the You meringues. He will have one season at Real Madrid to beat Vinicius’ record.

A glimpse of the future

Facing Spain at the Santiago Bernabeu, Endrick provided the perfect appetizer for things to come, as he started his goal at the Real Madrid stadium in emphatic fashion.

With remarkable composure just off the beaten track, Endrick fired a powerful volley who blasted past Unai Simon, leveling the scores with a low, precise ball.

The South American only had one half to make an impression, but he made the most of his opportunity, just as he did against England, scoring the winner after coming on in the 71st minute.

During his 45 minutes of action at the Bernabeu, Endrick completed 100% of his dribbles and long balls, completed a key pass and had a shot on target.

Fans will be eager to see the 17-year-old star emulate his goalscoring success once he finally pulls on the Madrid jersey.

Should receive jersey No. 9

Following Karim Benzema’s departure from the club last summer, the iconic number 9 jersey was left vacant at Real Madrid.

However, reports claim that Endrick is still the favorite to wear number nine Real Madrid jersey next year.

Due to his natural propensity to roam in the final third and operate as a true centre-forward, it seems possible that he will be handed the kit.

Although Kylian Mbappe is also a contender for the number, he will likely receive the number 10 jersey with Luka Modric exit apparently imminent.
