Widely regarded as the future of Brazilian football, Endrick made his senior debut for Palmeiras, and has played seven league matches for the 2021 Copa Libertadores, scoring three goals and assisting once.
According to Marca, the fee will be €35m plus €25m in potential variables, which would arrive at his release clause of €60m.
Real Madrid’s acquisition of Endrick continues their policy of attempting to recruit the best young talents from South American football before they reach Europe, a strategy that has been successful with Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo Goes.
