Liverpool are being linked with a move for a Brazilian sensation. It would take a change of approach, but Barcelona and Real Madrid have proven it can be worth it
When the next big thing coming through in Brazil starts to emerge, it does not take long for the player’s name to spread far and wide, and for the hype to very quickly take off. It certainly did with Neymar, and has done with plenty of others.
With the latest prodigy emerging — a player on the inevitable path to the European game — that hype looks to be justified, as it so often is, with lofty comparisons already beginning to be drawn.
Palmeiras forward Endrick has been in the news this week, with Liverpool named among the clubs that are tracking his progress in South America.
Barcelona are also among the teams taking a look at him, and the Catalan side have supposedly entered ‘behind the scenes’ talks for a transfer. They did similarly with Neymar when he signed at the Camp Nou, tracking him and getting ahead of the competition.
