Unless you’ve been living under a rock, there’s no chance you have not heard of the Brazilian youngster Endrick. A very touted player for his age and he’s on the radar of European elites already at the age of 16!
Ronaldo Nazario, El Fenomeno, himself said that he would have taken Endrick to the world cup this year itself. This highlights the amount of expectations and abilities he holds that even at such a young age, one of the best strikers of all time, arguably, is praising you with such words.
Barcelona, Real Madrid, Chelsea, Ajax, PSG, and Manchester City have been scouting the teenage Brazilian star since his days at the youth ranks of Palmeiras.
According to the news outlet, The Times, Chelsea attempted to make a move for the wonder kid by hosting him and his family at the Cobham Training facilities.
Also, Thiago Silva, his senior Brazilian veteran was introduced to him so as to influence his decision. It is reportedly said that the Londen Blues are confident about their chances of acquiring his services.
The insurmountable increment in the attention towards the young Palmeiras forward can be a problem for La Blaugrana, who are not in a financially sound position as of now.
Considering it will take a huge lump of money to get his contract penned down, It might be tough work for the Barçelona hierarchy. As of now, they have asked his entourage to wait till the summer for any definitive words or actions. However, the bidding war is something that La Blaugrana will find difficult to cope with.
