Revealed: PSG’s bid for Brazilian wonderkid Endrick
The two European teams are currently locked in a battle to sign Endrick, with both sides keen to land one of the most prodigious talents Brazil has produced in years.
Endrick signed his first professional contract with Palmeiras earlier this year, after making headlines for his incredible record at youth level. In fact, the forward has hit the ground running at senior level, scoring three goals and assisting one in just 300 first-team minutes.
As a result, Europe's biggest clubs have taken note of his form and are now doing all they can to convince Endrick to join them.
According to reports, Thiago Silva has played a role in Chelsea's efforts to sign Endrick, while the player has been invited on a tour of the Blues' Cobham training facilities as Chelsea pull out all the stops to sign him.
It is worth noting that Endrick will not be able to complete a move until after he turns 18 in 2024, in line with FIFA regulations.
Endrick to PSG?
PSG are now confident of beating Chelsea in the race for Endrick. Brazilian outlet Globo have reported that PSG have discussed a transfer fee of up to €80 million in a bid to sign the forward.
Palmeiras are aware of the talent they have on their hands and have therefore placed a high price tag on Endrick's head. The report claims that the Parisians are readying an initial offer of €50m with bonuses meaning that fee could reach €80m due to €30m of potential add-ons.
PSG managed to tie Kylian Mbappe down to a new contract in the summer, despite links with Real Madrid, although Lionel Messi has been linked with a move back to Barcelona or to David Beckham's Inter Miami.
Therefore, forward reinforcements are deemed a need at the Parc des princes after missing out on Gianluca Scamacca to West Ham United.
