Chelsea lead race to sign 16-year-old Palmeiras wonderkid


A video went viral just one month ago of Endrick’s father in tears as his son made his debut aged just 16 years old for Brazilian side Palmeiras in a Brazilian league match which they won convincingly 4-0 against Coritiba.

Now the future of Brazilian football looks set for a big move to Europe with the major clubs not wasting time in letting their interest be known. But according to Fabrizio Romano, Chelsea are one of the clubs leading the race for the player.

Well, in fact the ract is “open” but the 3 clubs pushing for the deal are PSG, Real Madrid and Chelsea.

Chelsea are sat at the top table with world football’s biggest names.

As for Endrick, he would certainly fit into Boehly’s philosophy of bringing the brightest young talent to the club and developing them for the future.

This transfer race will be an exciting one for sure.
