There is still much speculation and transfer gossip about the Brazilian teenager who is quickly becoming one of the best in the game.
Chelsea would be well served to win Endrick’s signature. Romano confirmed that they are still in contention and that the final decision will come down to the player.
Romano responded to speculations of a Palmeiras bid. The Italian journalist made it clear that no agreement has been reached with any club.
This decision seems to be largely with the player. We will need to wait a bit longer to see where the 16-year old chooses to go next. Romano stated that there is still no agreement between Palmeiras, any other club or the player’s side.
“It is still open and it will be the player who decides. It’s not about making bids to Palmeiras. It’s about convincing him.
“The race is still the same: Chelsea and Real Madrid, PSG. All the clubs remain in the race, 100%.”
Although Endrick would love to play in the Premier League, it is unlikely that Chelsea will be able to overcome the competition from two European major clubs.
Real Madrid has a strong Brazilian contingent. They have also signed young players like Vinicius Junior, Rodrygo Goes and Rodrygo Goes at a similar time in their careers.
SG have Neymar, so Endrick may feel the need to make a similar move to the French capital.
PSG, meanwhile, have Neymar on their books, and Endrick will inevitably draw comparisons with the former Santos wonderkid, so may be keen to follow in his footsteps with a move to the French capital.
