Man Utd, Newcastle and Tottenham all set to bid for Endrick as transfer race for 16-year-old wonderkid hots up | The Sun
THREE Premier League clubs are prepared to bid for Palmeiras wonderkid Endrick in the near future, reports claim.
Endrick, 16, joined the Palmeiras academy at the age of 11 and has since scored 165 goals.
The striker is yet to make his first team debut, but a number of European giants already consider him a top prospect.
And according to Brazilian journalist Jorge Nicola, Manchester United, Newcastle and Tottenham have joined the race to sign him.
All three clubs are lining up a bid for Endrick, who has already scored five goals in four appearances for Brazil's U17's squad.
But, they face competition from both Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain for his signature.
