Endrick admitted “it was not a choice” but a “dream” to sign for Real Madrid and opened up on his bond with Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo.

Endrick Explains Why He Chose Real Madrid Over Barca And PSG


Endrick, whom the Spanish giants have pursued for nearly a year, is set to join the club in the summer of 2024.

The move comes after Madrid paid a record fee of €60 million (£52m/$64m) to Palmeiras, to march ahead of competition from Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona.

Despite interest from several top European clubs, Endrick was clear about his intentions.

“It wasn’t a choice,” he stated in an interview with AS.


“Madrid was always a dream. I didn’t have to choose anything; I just realised a dream”.

Endrick looks to settle down quickly in Spain with the help of his compatriots Vinicius Junior, Rodrygo Goes, and Eder Militao.

The teenager already shares an incredible bond with the trio and hailed Vinicius and Rodrygo as his “inspiration”.

“It’s very good,” Endrick said of his relationship with them.


“They are young people, also Brazilians, who adapted very well to both the city and the club.

Endrick’s Ambition

“Their story, both Vini’s and Rodrygo’s, is an inspiration and they are going to help me a lot.”


Endrick’s ambition doesn’t stop at joining the team.

He is fully aware of the high expectations that come with playing for Real Madrid and is already hoping to be crowned a European champion after making his move to Real.

“More than wanting, I know that it is mandatory to be European champion if you are in Madrid,” he asserted.

“The Champions League is a tournament that Madrid always thinks about, and the team should not start the season with any other objective than that.”
