The father of Palmeiras prodigy Endrick, Douglas Ramos, has denied that his entourage is scheduled to visit Real Madrid after reports to the contrary.
  • Endrick linked with a move to Real Madrid
  • Was reportedly set to visit this month
  • Ramos refutes claims

WHAT HAPPENED? The 16-year-old has been flourishing with Palmeiras since making his debut in Serie A and has three goals and one assist in just over 300 minutes. European heavyweights Real Madrid, Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly pushing to land his services. Ramos was quoted as saying that Endrick's camp would pay a visit to the Spanish capital and take a look at the facilities at Valdebebas, Madrid's training centre, before making a decision. However, Endrick's father has now denied the claims.

WHAT THEY SAID: "I didn’t give any interview, and I never spoke about any travel to Madrid in the next weeks. There’s no travel scheduled as things stand," Ramos told Fabrizio Romano.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: Endrick became the youngest player to feature for Palmeiras' senior side last month and a few weeks later he made history as their youngest-ever goal scorer. Madrid, Chelsea and PSG are considered as the frontrunners to sign him as it stands, although he is not eligible to make a transfer until he turns 18 in 2024.
