“We’ve been talking with Endrick’s father and also with the player. I explained them the project. We want him, he’s a top talent,” Xavi has told ESPN.
“Endrick is the kind of player we need. I hope he joins Barca. It’s up to him to decide,” the Barca boss added.
Endrick is a 16-year-old wonderkid striker with a crazy goalscoring record for Palmeiras’ youth teams – it stood at 165 goals in 169 games in January. The teenager already plays for Palmeiras’ U20 and senior sides despite being so young.
Real Madrid are said to be the hot favourites for the Brazilian’s signature. However, there is seemingly no agreement between the player and any European club at the moment.
