Manchester United have been interested in signing Brazilian starlet, Endrick, for some time and the forward can be sold when he will turn 16 on 21st July.
As per Jorge Nicola, Man United and Chelsea are looking to hire the services of the teenage sensation and Palmeiras are willing to agree a deal for the right price.
The famous journalist has mentioned that president, Pereira, has revealed that a bid of around £33.8million (40 million euros) would be accepted for Endrick.
£33.8million is a very high fee for someone who has not even played a single game for any senior side (club or national) as yet. Still, the fact that top teams in the continent want him indicates that he is super talented.
Nicola claims that apart from the Premier League clubs, the likes of Barca, Real Madrid and PSG are seriously interested in the player as well.
His stats for the youth teams have been brilliant. So far, the 15-year-old striker has made 7 appearances for the Under-20 Palmeiras side (only 3 starts) and scored 6 goals.
On the other hand, the youngster has played 4 games for the Under-17 Brazil side thus far and directly contributed in 6 goals (5 goals and 1 assist).
Man United do need a young forward, someone who can replace Cristiano Ronaldo and serve the club in the long run.
Have your say – Should Man Utd splash £33.8million to sign Endrick?
