Real Madrid is nearing an agreement with Chelsea, and PSG is a possible destination2 min read
Sources close to Real Madrid and Palmeiras have confirmed to 90min that an agreement for prized youngster Endrick is nearing completion.
The 16-year-old is regarded as one of the best prospects to have emerged from Brazil, and Real Madrid have been following him since he was a teenager.
90min revealed last month that Palmeiras was set to reach an agreement to sell Endrick before the end of the year, which is now nearing completion.
Throughout the last six months, sources have insisted to 90min that Real Madrid was leading the chase for Endrick, with the Spanish club’s chief scout Juni Calafat teeing up the move after growing close to the player and his family.
Calafat has also been instrumental in bringing in players like Vinicius Junior, Rodrygo, and Federico Valverde in recent years, but the club believes Endrick is the best of them all.
Chelsea and PSG have both made strong bids for Endrick, but Real Madrid have always been confident that the player wants to move to Madrid, and they believe a deal is now imminent.

Real Madrid is now set to agree to terms in which they will pay €60 million for the player, but they will also pay additional taxes imposed on transfers of Brazilian players to Spain. Real also agreed to additional add-ons and performance-based bonuses.
Endrick, on the other hand, will not be able to wear a white shirt until 2024, as FIFA regulations prohibit international transfers of players under the age of 18.
