Coach Xavi of Barcelona recently discussed Brazilian wonderkid Endrick in an interview. Additionally, quite frank. He openly stated that the Catalans “want” him and verified conversations with the player and his father.
“We have spoken with the player directly and with his parent. I described the project we are working on in Barcelona. He is talented and capable of making a difference, and we want talent,” he remarked.
On the same note, Xavi expressed his desire for Endrick to join Barcelona, saying, “He is the kind of player we need. He is already conversant with the project we are working on in Barcelona. I wish he would join Barça.
Barcelona are still lagging behind Madrid and PSG in the fight for the young player, despite the fact that this should offer the Catalans a big advantage. Actually, MARCA has verified that Madrid recently dispatched scouts to Brazil, who returned with excellent reports.
Madrid is thought to have been the first team to express interest in Endrick, although they have not yet presented a firm offer for him. In fact, they don’t want to go into a bidding war and will only sign the contract if the adolescent decides to turn down other offers.
Chelsea is also interested in signing Endrick, but it appears that PSG is at the top of the food chain after having already spoken to Palmeiras about a possible transfer.
According to Douglas, who is believed to be playing a significant role in assisting his son in making a decision about his future, Paris Saint-Germain is the only club to have initiated negotiations with Palmeiras with an official offering.
Clearly, big European clubs are very interested in signing Endrick, but a summer transfer is totally dependant upon the clubs meeting his €60 million release clause. Endrick is responsible for deciding where he will ultimately play, and Palmeiras has given him little room for contract negotiation.
