Mercato: The Endrick phenomenon sends a message to PSG

In the sights of PSG, Real Madrid and Chelsea, the young Brazilian nugget from Palmeiras is very ambitious for her future.

If you don’t know it yet, it’s only a matter of time. Endrick, 16, is announced as the future star of Brazilian football. The new Ronaldo, the new Neymar or the new Vinicius Junior, here is the type of nickname to which the young striker from Palmeiras is entitled, who made his professional debut this summer as soon as his age allowed it.

“I like watching PSG”

For the past few weeks, Endrick has seen his name associated with the best European clubs. Indeed, none of the big names from the old continent want to take the risk of missing out on a generational talent capable of changing the course of fate for a decade or more. Real Madrid, PSG and especially Chelsea, according to information from the London Evening Standard, are in pole position to welcome the Brazilian phenomenon in 2024 when he can join Europe.

Rare in the media, Endrick gave an interview to So Foot in which he mentioned his future in a half-word: “A heart club in Europe? No not really, I watch the matches, the Champions League, the Premier League, La Liga, the French championship, the Bundesliga. I’m looking to learn from these stars who play in these competitions, see what I can replicate, but I don’t have a favorite club. And then I don’t pay attention to rumours, I know that to play in Europe, I have to perform here.”.

“My idols? Ronaldo and CR7”

Endrick and his clan have hammered it, no choice has been made regarding the future of the Brazilian player. In any case, the Palmeiras striker is not insensitive to PSG and sent a message of hope to the capital club: “Neymar is a player I really like! I like watching PSG, Mbappé is very strong, Messi, Marquinhos, classy players. As I told you, I love watching them to inspire me“.If Ligue 1 is quite often a brake for the recruitment of stars or future planetary stars compared to the Premier League or La Liga, this does not seem to be the case for Endrick. Ambitious, the young winger revealed his models: “I would say Ronaldo Fenomeno and Cristiano Ronaldo, they are players who have qualities that I identify with, I have seen them play a lot. I like the speed, the power, how they punch through defenses, and then their winning attitude. What I’m trying to take from them is their composure in the box, use that to score even more goals.”

“Obviously I have many dreams. I watch what is happening in Europe, I know that I want to play the big competitions: Champions League, World Cup, Libertadores. What I want in my life is to be champion, what is within my reach today is the Brazilian championship and the Libertadores“, concluded Endrick, author of nine goals in thirteen matches this season.
