Palmeiras have rejected a 45 million euro bid from Paris Saint-Germain for Endrick who prefers Chelsea, amid Real Madrid links.
After their bid was rejected, Paris Saint-Germain said they were ready to match Palmeiras’ €60m price tag to get the 16-year-old.
However, according to ESPN, Chelsea is following everything closely and also prepared to match the 60 million euros to be in the race with Paris Saint-Germain.
Endrick will decide which club he will go to so Palmeiras will allow one of these clubs to sign him.
At the moment, his preference is believed to be Chelsea, as he would like to play in the Premier League when he leaves Brazilian football.
Furthermore, according to the reports, the Blues rely on “help” defender Thiago Silva behind the scenes to convince the Palmeiras player to go to the Stamford Bridge.
Real Madrid is still in the race and monitoring the situation closely.
