Palmeiras are aware that they could be set for a massive pay day if Europe’s big-hitters come knocking and as a way to ensure they do not lose him at the first opportunity.

The Brazilian side are eager to hand Endrick a professional contract when he turns 16 in July and are looking at a £83m release clause. 

Endrick has shone for the club’s youth teams, netting 165 goals in 169 games since his debut in 2017.

Excelling in the recent Copinha de Sao Paulo, the most important junior tournament in Brazil, Endrick has been tipped to be the next big Brazilian product. 

The Copinha has showcased some of the country’s best young players, including Neymar and Vinicius Junior, and Endrick seems to be following in their footsteps. 

He scored six during the tournament, including during Palmerias’s 4-0 victory over Santos in the final.

Understandably, Palmeiras are hoping to fend off interest from Europe’s top-flights, however it is believed to be inevitable that he will eventually make the switch across the Atlantic. 

But the youngster reportedly will not be able to do so until he reaches 18, as was the case with Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo when they signed for Real Madrid.

When he eventually is free to be snatched up on the market, Madrid are said to be best placed to secure his signature.
