Endrick is a Brazilian footballer who plays as a striker for Palmeiras in the Campeonato Brasileiro Serie A and Brazil national team. He’s set to join Real Madrid in La Liga by July 2024. Born in Taguatinga, Brazil, Endrick began playing football at four. His father, Douglas Sousa, shared his son’s goals on YouTube, seeking interest from major Brazilian clubs. Endrick aimed to support his family after his father struggled to provide for them, until he found work as a janitor at Palmeiras.
Initially close to signing with Sao Paulo, Endrick joined Palmeiras’ youth team at 11. Over five years, he scored 165 goals in 169 games, gaining attention during the 2022 Copa Sao Paulo de Futebol Junior, where he led Palmeiras to their first title. His debut for Palmeiras’ senior team came in October 2022, making him as their youngest player at 16 years and two months. His impactful performances earned him recognition, including the honor of the most promising player in Serie A.
Real Madrid secured Endrick’s signing in December 2022, agreeing on a deal to bring him aboard once he turns 18 in July 2024. The contract details varied in reported amounts, with the official fee undisclosed but reported to be around €60 million plus taxes. Endrick excelled in Brazil’s under-17 team. Although initially called for Brazil’s under-20 squad in 2023, his club commitment with Palmeiras prevented his participation.
