Fabrizio Romano on Chelsea’s interest in the youngster
Romano have commented that the biggest competition Chelsea is going to face is from Real Madrid and PSG. However, the Premier League club is confident to strike a deal with the teenager. Romano have claimed that,
“The three clubs are fighting and Chelsea are in the race. They want to try and they want to discuss. Palmeiras want €60million. That is the value of the release clause, but they could accept a different kind of structure of the deal with the package, including add-ons and bonuses.“
He further added,
“Remember the player would be joining in 2024, so it’s a long-term project around Endrick and not a short-term project, but Chelsea are there. They have a chance to sign Endrick. As of today, yes, but it could change in a day because there are three clubs fighting for Endrick and there are also many rumours about Barcelona and Manchester United.”
Endrick’s credibility as a player
Endrick has been a phenomenal player so far. He has scored 165 goals in his 169 appearances for Palmeiras’ academy side.
