Endrick will soon arrive in Europe. The Brazilian is waiting until he turns 18 to join Real Madrid next summer, this is the rule in the land of Pelé, Ronaldinho and Ronaldo. In a little less than a year, precisely on July 21, 2024, the Auriverde striker will leave Palmeiras to join the Madrid club. A transfer estimated at €60 million. Former Merengue recruiter, Manolo Romero, however, expressed serious doubts about the player's date of birth... "I always had doubts with Endrick about whether the age we give him is the right one", he declared on the airwaves of Cadena Ser.
And he argues: “Physically he is too well trained and I always remember the anecdote of Radamel Falcao who arrived in Europe older than his age.” Some documents suggest that the former AS Monaco player was born in 1986, and not in 1984, even if nothing could be confirmed. Concerning Endrick, the doubts of the man named Manolo Romero are not a priori supported by any source.
