Palmeiras forward Endrick has made it clear that he is “open” to moving to any club, following reports that Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid were favourites to secure his signature.
The Brazilian is in high demand, with Manchester United, City Liverpool and Arsenal having also been credited with an interest in the player, but the 16-year-old has spoken out to say he hasn’t decided which European side he will sign for:
“I’m not gonna answer about my future club. Of course, I’d like to play Champions League in 2, 3 or 4 years. I’m open to all the clubs, waiting for the best proposal for me and my family.”
Endrick only made his professional debut back in October, but he has already bagged three goals in his first seven senior appearances. A release clause does, though, mean clubs can snap him up for €60m (£52.5m), which has prompted a lot of speculation about his future.
Due to legal restrictions, though, the teenager can only finalise his switch to Europe when he turns 18, so if United were to be successful in snapping him up, he wouldn’t actually make the move until July 2024.
