The Real Madrid-PSG saga has been ongoing for months, primarily revolving around the uncertain future of Kylian Mbappé. However, this is not the sole point of contention between the two football powerhouses. Startling revelations now surface, exposing Qatar’s attempts to sway a deal worth €93 million, preventing a potential arrival at Concha Espina.
Fabrizio Romano re-enters the Real Madrid universe, shedding light on one of the most talked-about operations that has fueled the perpetual clash between Real Madrid and PSG. In stark contrast to the Mbappé situation, Romano reveals that not even a €93 million bid could deter the ambitions of the Spanish giants.
Endrick Felipe Moreira de Sousa emerges as the central figure in this narrative. Following his debut for the Brazilian national team against Colombia, and with Vinicius’ injury causing concern among the Madrid faithful, Romano provides further insights into how PSG once again became Florentino Pérez’s primary adversary in the transfer market.
“This is the background story of Endrick’s deal with Real Madrid… Chelsea invited Endrick’s family to London to present their project,” Romano began on his various social media platforms, unraveling the complexities of a mega-operation where Real Madrid found themselves competing against the financial might of half of Europe. Similar to previous cases, such as Jude Bellingham, the willingness of the key players remained the decisive factor.
Paris Wanted to Shower Him in Gold
However, Romano places particular emphasis on the French capital. The reality is that PSG’s bid for Endrick included more financial incentives than what Madrid had offered, along with a potential double deal that the Spanish club was not keen on pursuing. Ultimately, it was the forward’s desire to join the ranks of Palmeiras that tilted the scales in favor of the Bernabéu.
“The PSG had an offer of a €93 million package rejected, both for Estevão and Endrick…Real Madrid’s Juni Calafat was key to making it happen,” concludes the transfer market guru, highlighting the pivotal role of the director of scouts in altering the course of the equation, ensuring that the young Brazilian striker would call Valdebebas home beyond June 30, 2024.
