Spanish side Real Madrid have signed Chelsea transfer target and Brazilian attacker Endrick for €72million, according to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano.

The 16 year old Brazilian attacker was also wanted by Chelsea and his family visited Chelsea’s Cobham training centre last month as the Blues pushed to convince the teenager.

Romano wrote: “Endrick to Real Madrid, here we go! Full verbal agreement in place as reported 2 days ago, it’s now closed.

“Real Madrid will pay €60m to Palmeiras plus €12m taxes.

“Brazilian gem [born in 2006] will join [Real Madrid] in July 2024.

“Real Madrid plan to sign all documents within December.”

Romano added: “Important to add: nothing signed yet for Endrick deal and it should take some days, but there’s full verbal agreement between all parties, clubs and player. It’s done — will be sealed soon.”
