Italian Journalist Fabrizio Romano has once again confirmed that Chelsea are in the race to sign talented Brazilian star Endrick.

The 16-year-old striker has been heavily linked with a move to many of Europe’s top-flight sides lately as he continues to impress for boyhood club Palmeiras.

According to many reports in the media, Endrick has had ‘several’ meetings with the club over a potential move to Stamford Bridge.

Now – amid all the speculation – Romano has come out and stated that Chelsea, Man United and Barcelona are the three clubs that are really interested in the lad.

In an interview held with GIVEMESPORT, Romano said: “The three clubs are fighting and Chelsea are in the race. They want to try and they want to discuss.

“Palmeiras want €60million. That is the value of the release clause, but they could accept a different kind of structure of the deal with the package, including add-ons and bonuses.

“Remember the player would be joining in 2024, so it’s a long-term project around Endrick and not a short-term project, but Chelsea are there.

“They have a chance to sign Endrick. \

“As of today, yes, but it could change in a day because there are three clubs fighting for Endrick and there are also many rumours about Barcelona and Manchester United.”

It is a massive choice he has to make about where he ends up – but guys – he needs to make the right career choices or he could get lost in the system
