This is a major coup on the part of Real Madrid, who are continuing to invest in the talents of tomorrow, having already completed the transfer of Brazilian phenomenon Endrick (16, Palmeiras) for the summer of 2024. The icing on the cake is the pleasure of snapping up a player being courted by arch-rivals Barcelona.
