According to reports, Chelsea’s hopes of bringing Palmeiras starlet Endrick to Stamford Bridge may hinge on whether Erling Haaland leaves Manchester City in the near future.
Endrick has emerged as arguably the most exciting young player in world football since breaking through in Brazil, and the Blues are said to be one of several clubs interested in signing him.
Endrick is widely expected to make a high-profile move to Europe soon, with Real Madrid also said to be keeping a close eye on his progress ahead of a possible approach. However, if the Spanish giants bring Endrick to the Bernabeu at the turn, they risk missing out on long-term target Haaland.
According to Bild, Real Madrid is only willing to sign one goalscorer at the moment, which means that they will be forced to choose between Endrick and Haaland rather than pursuing the signings of both players soon.
Their long-standing interest in Haaland, who has been on their radar since he was a teenager at Molde, suggests that he would be their preferred option, but it remains to be seen which direction they will take to strengthen their attacking ranks.
According to recent reports, Haaland’s contract with Manchester City may include a release clause that allows him to join Real Madrid until the summer of 2024. Meanwhile, Endrick cannot be signed by any European club until he turns 18 in the same year, though this rule hasn’t stopped last year’s Champions League champions from keeping a close eye on his progress at Palmeiras.
