Endrick’s father gives update: “PSG have made their move...”
The French champions appear to be the first to move to sign Palmeiras’ promising young star. The battles for Endrick is heating up.
PSG seem to have taken pole position, at least for now, in the race to sign Endrick. If his father’s comments on the Youtube channel, Canal do Nicola are anything to go by, the French champions appear to be the first club to officially open negotiations with Palmeiras for the teenage sensation. That is an unexpected setback for Real Madrid in the race to sign the 16-year-old, especially after the family’s trip to the Spanish capital to view the club’s facilities for themselves.
“Paris Saint-Germain is the only club that has opened negotiations with Palmeiras with an official proposal, that’s how things are,” Endrick’s father explained. “There are many clubs from different countries willing to sign him. PSG has already made a move”. The Fench outfit have shown the most interest in signing the player, in an attempt to repeat the formula they carried out several years ago with Lucas Moura, although with little success.
Clubs jostling for Endrick
Together with the group from the French capital, there are two other clubs on his trail. Real Madrid and Chelsea are closely following the evolution of the 16-year-old and, according to reports coming out of Brazil, the English side are believed to have made a first offer - a 45 million euro bid which has been rejected .
The ‘Endrick soap opera’ enters a new chapter. The player has caught the attention of Europe’s top clubs based on goals - even before turning professional. The striker made his debut with Abel Ferreira’s Palmeiras on 7 October is already on three goals in just 306 minutes spread over seven games with the Verdão. “He has everything to be a world star in the future,” said João Paulo Sampaio, Palmeiras youth team director, in conversation with AS. The race to become the striker has already begun, although the last word will always be the player’s.
