Endrick has revealed Vinicius Junior and Cristiano Ronaldo played a part in his decision to join Real Madrid.

The 16-year-old forward has agreed to join LaLiga and European champions Madrid from Palmeiras in July 2024.

Endrick had been linked with the likes of Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea before opting to make the move to the Spanish capital in a deal that could reportedly be worth €70million.

Fellow Brazilian Vinicius and Madrid’s all-time leading goalscorer Ronaldo influenced the teenager’s decision to make the switch to Los Blancos.

He told Marca: “Real Madrid is a very big team, and Vini had sent me messages and gave me more hope.

“Cristiano, who is my idol, also played for Real Madrid. That’s why I chose Real Madrid and I think it’s the right choice. God has always been with me and he has told me that it is the best way.”

Carlo Ancelotti also convinced Endrick that joining Madrid was his best option.

“Yes, I spoke with Ancelotti, with Rodrygo, with Eder [Militao], with the Brazilians,” he said.

“I thank God very much for everything that happens in my life and I hope that many good things still come, but you have to keep your feet on the ground, have humility and persevere.”
