At the time of his signing, the wait for Endrick’s arrival at Real Madrid appeared long and tedious. After all, the youngster was hyped as one of the brightest upcoming talents of his generation and many dreamt of seeing him in the white colours.
Now, a little over seven months remain before the young Brazilian prodigy is presented as a new Real Madrid player. His incorporation into the dynamics may be gradual, but one can be assured that he will be a mainstay at the club for the next decade at least.
Endrick won his second consecutive Brasileiro earlier this week with Palmeiras after the team’s 1-1 draw against Cruzeiro.
His team finished two points above second-placed Gremio, and it was only poetic that the youngster netted the eventual champions’ only goal on the night.
“Cristiano Ronaldo is the greatest player I’ve ever seen play,” Endrick stated, talking about The whites’ all-time leading goalscorer.
“He is my idol. He’s an idol I will have for life for his hard work and dedication,” he added.

Endrick’s admiration of Ronaldo’s hard work and dedication is understandable, for like the Portuguese star, the road has not been simple for him. The teenager may have signed for Real Madrid early, but the past season was tough on the youngster.
Endrick had no role at Palmeiras at the beginning of the recently concluded season. It reached a point where Real Madrid were worried about his lack of minutes and its impact on his mental strength.
Yet, the youngster never caved in. He held his head high and fought on to make himself a regular starter under Abel Ferreira and finished the league season with 11 goals to his name.
