Brazilian forward Endrick has revealed he chose Real Madrid over Chelsea because of the influence of Vinicius Junior and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Endrick said in an interview with Marca: “Real Madrid is a huge team, Vini had sent me messages and gave me hope.

“Cristiano is my idol and he played for Real Madrid, that’s why I chose them and I believe it’s the right choice. God has always been with me and he told me it was the right thing to do.”

The Brazilian added on his relationship with Vinicius: “He’s given me different tips, but I will save them to myself. I have to say that he didn’t just gave me tips for now but also for the rest of my life.

“He’s a very good friend of mine and I think this friendship will last for many years. I hope we can pass the ball to each other and score goals.”

Endrick also revealed he has already spoken with Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti and hopes that the team can win more titles in the future. “Yes, I spoke with Ancelotti, Rodrygo, Eder [Militao], with the Brazilians.

“Right now I’m with Palmeiras but I will be supporting the team from far away. So I’m hoping that my friend Vini makes a great season, Eder, Rodrygo, so that Real Madrid can win more Champions Leagues, more Ligas and now the Supercup.”
