Copa Libertadores champions Palmeiras celebrated the deal with a picture of Endrick, who is already a part of the team’s youth setup, and his family with club chairwoman Leila Pereira. Brazilian media reported the contract put the striker’s release clause at €60 million ($64 million).

Endrick has impressed Brazilian greats such as Ronaldo, Rivaldo and Kaka. According to FIFA rules, Endrick can only transfer to another club when he turns 18, the same age as when his countrymen Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo made their moves to Real Madrid.
