Endrick Felipe is on the radar of many European football clubs. The 15 year old is seen as the next superstar from Brazil. Several clubs from Premier League, Barcelona, and Real Madrid have sent their scouts to monitor him. But who is he?
Endrick Felipe, the teenage sensation from Brazil, currently plays in the youth academy of Palmeiras since he is not 16 yet. But still, many clubs are after his signature.
The Brazilian sensation is a versatile forward with an eye for goal and has a brilliant left foot. His ability to play high-quality football at such a tender age is what has attracted many clubs.
However, Endrick can not sign for any European club before he turns 18. Also, considering the competition to sign him, his transfer value will be high.

The 15 year old averages a goal in every match as he has scored 167 goals in 170 appearances for his academy. This insane stat has intrigued the European clubs so they have sent their scouts to watch him play in the Sao Paolo Junior Football Cup.

He has also scored an outrageous solo goal in which he dribbled past three defenders. Endrick Felipe has the ability to play anywhere in the front three. But mainly he is deployed as a number 9.
Fans has compared his flair and agility with Ronaldo Nazario which speaks volumes. If the youngster is able to keep himself fit for the coming years, he can achieve big feats.
The Brazilian sensation can get past defenders like a breeze. He has a knack for scoring goals which is evident from his insane stats. But he needs to go to a club where he is valued and gets nurtured properly.
Real Madrid are the favorites to sign him as the Brazilian sensation wants to play for the Spanish giants. Real have already signed several Brazilian youngsters in the past.
Why are Real Madrid after Endrick Felipe?
The Los Blancos have signed three young Brazilians in recent years, Reiner Jesus, Rodrygo Goes, and Vinicius Junior. Their transfer strategy did not work out properly until the last year.
Real Madrid’s president, Florentino Perez got criticized heavily by the media because of his risky strategy. He was investing in young players and not accomplished talents.
But, slowly his plan is taking its shape as Vinicius has been one of the best players this season. Also, Rodrygo looks like a consistent player on the right-wing.
Real Madrid have a chief scout, Juni Calafat who is brilliant in spotting young talents from South America.
The Los Blancos would like to secure another talent from Brazil with their strong connections and the player is also inclined to sign for them.
However, Real Madrid should take proper care of the players as he might not get enough chances in the first team. Or else, he might end up like Reiner Jesus whose future is now a question mark.
