Man Utd keen on to agree deal for highly-rated Brazilian attacker

La Liga giants, Real Madrid have reportedly moved ahead of the likes of Chelsea, Manchester United and Liverpool in the race to secure the services of Palmeiras starlet Endrick.

The 15-year-old is yet to have played for the senior team, however, his form at Under-20 level are believed to have caught the eye of several elite teams across Europe.

Real Madrid, Liverpool, Chelsea and Man Utd are four clubs along with, Bayern Munich, Atletico Madrid, Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester City and Arsenal who are all closely keeping tabs on the talented forward.

According to Marca, Endrick would prefer a move to Los Blancos, with the La Liga giants having already made contact with the player’s agents.

The report adds that Endrick has a €17m (£14.2m) release clause in his academy contract; but, the teenager cannot sign for another team outside of Brazil until he turns 18.

Endrick will therefore have to wait for at least another two-and-a-half years before his dream switch to Europe can be achieved, though such an obstacle will not stop the Los Blancos from negotiating with Palmeiras, as they remain keen to beat their rivals to the player’s services.
