Endrick reaches his one year anniversary and reaches 50 games with Palmeiras
The future Real Madrid player recently reached 50 games with Palmeiras, a year after his explosion in Brazil.
Endrick’s explosion in the elite of Brazilian football is one year old. The young Palmerias striker, already signed by Real Madrid, the team he will join next year, scored his first goal as a professional 365 days ago. Back then he was 16-years-old and became the youngest ever player to score for the Brazilian club.
Endrick came on for Danilo at half-time and was the main man in Palmerias’ comeback at the home of Athletico Paranaense to end up winning 1-3. He scored a double on that day and from then on, despite ups and downs, his stature in Brazilian football has not dropped.
What is Endrick’s record at Palmeiras?
Now a part of the first team setup, Endrick recently celebrated 50 games as a professional footballer. The forward has a grand total of 2,269 minutes accumulated on the pitch in which he has scored 11 goals. In the Brasileirão, he is Palmerias’ most efficient attacker, with a goal every 160 minutes.
As for the current campaign, Endrick is the second-top scorer in his team, with 5 goals so far, the same as Artur, only beaten by Raphael Veiga, who sits on seven.
When will Endrick join Real Madrid?
Real Madrid are getting one of football’s brightest stars. The player is set to join Los Blancos in the summer of 2024, when his professional contract with the Spanish club begins. The transfer was unable to be completed before now as Endrick is still not 18-years-old.
The forward signed for the LaLiga team for a reported fee of around €35 million and the player is already preparing for life in Spain, taking English clases with Sara Duque, a famous teacher to professional footballers. “I hate night clubs and I hate partying”, said the youngster, “I prefer going to eat with my family. I don’t even like knowing how much I earn, I just want to play soccer.” The player also opened up on which figures at Los Blancos insipire him and who in football he is looking to emulate: “Vinícius, Rodrygo, Haaland and Bellingham. They lead a new generation of players who are going to bring us lots of joy and do amazing things of the field”.
