Man Utd join three Euro rivals in battle for Palmeiras whizkid Endrick

Manchester United have joined the battle for Palmeiras whizkid Endrick.

The battle to sign the exciting winger is heating up with Endrick, 15, close to signing his first professional contract.

Endrick is to sign a first professional contract with Palmeiras when he turns 16 in July.

Local journalist journalist Jorge Nicola reports the teenager will have a £34million release clause in the first year of his contract.

That will then rise to around £43m and £50m in the following two years.

As a result Nicola claims United are in a “hurry" to snap up the wonderkid sooner rather than later. Real Madrid, Barcelona and PSG are also targeting the teen, who visited all three clubs late last season.
