“Chelsea Fumbles: Losing a Prodigy with ‘More Potential than Neymar’ to Real Madrid Due to Fear of Spending”

According to Endrick’s father, the striker born in 2006 was very close to Chelsea, but the deal broke down at the last minute due to economic problems.

Young striker Endrick is definitely one of the brightest faces in Samba football at the moment. At just 17 years and 118 days old, Endrick became the fourth youngest player in history to make his official debut for the Brazilian team, in the match against Colombia in the 2026 World Cup qualifiers.

Recently, the 2006 talent continued to make a big splash when he scored to help Palmeiras tie with Cruzeiro in the final round, thereby winning the Brazilian Serie A championship. This is Endrick’s 11th goal of the season – the most in the Palmeiras squad. He also surpassed Neymar to become the player under 17 years old who scored the second most goals in the Brazilian National Championship, only behind “alien” Ronaldo Nazario.

Few people know that Endrick was once very close to an agreement to join Chelsea. The young Palmeiras striker even went to England to visit the facilities and meet the Blues first team players. However, the deal broke down at the last minute due to economic problems. Endrick’s father recounted:

“We received an invitation from Chelsea’s owner. And then we went to England to visit the club’s facilities. Endrick and I watched the match between Chelsea and Arsenal, then met the coaching staff and some players like Jorginho, Cesar Azpilicueta and Thiago Silva.”

“The club representative explained everything and introduced people who would help us get used to our new life in England,” Endrick’s father shared. “ They took us to see houses, visit the school Endrick would attend and even the church we would attend on the weekend. Everything has been prepared for Endrick to join Chelsea. However, the deal fell through at the last minute.”

“We thought about life in London and how to get used to the cold weather here. Then one night, my son’s agent received a call saying that Chelsea’s owner had abandoned the deal, because the 60 million Euros he had to spend to recruit Endrick would inflate the transfer market. . Furthermore, Endrick is only 16 years old and can only officially move to the club 2 years later. And then Real Madrid stepped in…” , Endrick’s father recalled.

Accordingly, Real Madrid’s board of directors sent scouting director Juni Calafat to directly contact and convince Endrick’s family to move to Spain. Many reputable sources said that Los Blancos had to spend up to 72 million Euros to get Endrick’s signature. At that time, Endrick had only played 307 minutes for the Palmeiras first team.
