Manchester United have been linked with Brazilian youngster and Palmeiras forward, Endrick, for a long time and now, they are stepping up efforts to finally sign him.
Back in January 2022, Sky Sports revealed that the Red Devils are one of the clubs leading to hire the services of the teenage sensation.
Moreover, in the summer transfer window, Brazilian journalist, Jorge Nicola, reported that the 20-time English champions are looking to lure the 16-year-old forward, who is going to cost around £35million (40 million euros).
Now, another journalist in form of Caio Carrieri has revealed Man Utd have intensified their efforts to observe the player.
The Red Devils are expected to go to as many games to view the performances of the player and the scouts were present to see him when he made his debut against Coritiba earlier this month.
This term, Endrick scored 6 goals in just 3 starts for the junior Palmeiras side. For the senior side, so far, he has made 3 appearances (61 minutes).
The South American starlet has made 4 appearances for the U-17 Brazil team, scored 5 goals, and provided 1 assist.
In the past few seasons, Man Utd have relied on veteran strikers like Cavani and Ronaldo. The Uruguayan has already left and the Portugal captain should soon depart as well.
Therefore, we need a young and quality center forward, who can serve the club in the long run. Endrick is yet to make a senior start for Palmeiras and needs time and experience to reach the top level.
In your opinion, should Man United offer £35million to finally sign him?
