The Spanish football club, Real Madrid, is known for its pursuit of young promising talents who could potentially fit into their long-term plans. Recently, one particular player has caught their eye, and he bears a striking resemblance to Endrick, the highly anticipated young talent who will be joining the team next summer.
Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano took to Twitter to share some interesting news. He revealed that several scouts from different clubs were present at the Copa Libertadores Playoffs semifinal match between Palmeiras and Boca Juniors. In a thrilling encounter, Boca Juniors emerged victorious with a 2-1 win on penalties.
According to Romano’s information, representatives from five clubs, including Real Madrid, expressed their interest in signing Luis Guilherme, the talented Brazilian midfielder from Palmeiras. However, Real Madrid’s presence at the match was primarily focused on Endrick, although they also took notice of the other player.
At just 17 years old, the young Brazilian’s value is steadily increasing due to his impressive performances. Apart from Real Madrid, other top European clubs such as Manchester City, Paris Saint-Germain, and Chelsea have also been keeping an eye on him, as reported by Romano.
While Real Madrid is indeed interested in the player, they do not intend to engage in a bidding war for his signature. This decision is not a reflection of his talent or potential, but rather due to the fact that the club already boasts some of the world’s best midfielders. Therefore, signing him would not make much sense at this point.
However, if Palmeiras were to sell him at a reasonable price that aligns with his market value, currently estimated at €7 million according to Transfermarkt, Real Madrid might consider the possibility of signing him with the intention of loaning him out to another club.
This approach highlights Real Madrid’s smart and strategic transfer policy, which focuses on acquiring young talents with high potential and then loaning them out to gain valuable experience and further develop their skills. By doing so, the club ensures that these players are ready to contribute to the first team when the time is right.
While Real Madrid’s interest in the ‘new Endrick’ is evident, they are not willing to engage in a bidding war for his services. The club’s midfield is already stacked with world-class players, making it unnecessary to sign another young talent in that position. However, if the opportunity arises at the right price, Real Madrid might consider signing him and loaning him out to continue his development.
