Indrik, a talented Brazilian club Palmeiras, has attracted the attention of the biggest clubs in Europe, and although he will not be able to play in the old continent until the 2024-2025 season, the bidding war has already begun to sign him.
Real Madrid appear to be leading the race to sign the 15-year-old, who has shown in a local Brazilian championship that he can compete with players five years older than him.
Media reports say that the value of the deal ranges between 30 and 40 million euros, and this figure will be enough to tempt Palmeiras to give up Andreik, but there are those who indicate that the Brazilian club should wait to sell his talent because he may receive a double amount after two years.
Any current agreement with the Brazilian club would have to include a mandatory purchase clause for the player after two and a half years, when Andrerick turns 18.
Some of Europe’s top players are keen to seal a deal with Palmeiras in the near future, because they know that the longer the wait, the more clubs can get into a “war of bids”, thus raising its price.
Real Madrid managed to get a commitment from Vinicius Junior, Rodrygo Goes and Reinier Jesus that they would join the club as soon as they reached adulthood, and that’s what happened in the end.
And Drew will be able to reach a verbal agreement with the club for the time being, but he cannot sign a professional contract until he is 16 years old. Two years later, on his 18th birthday, he will be able to join a European team.
Signing Andreik would likely be a huge risk from the royal, but given the talent he has already shown at the age of 15, it is not surprising that there is a queue of clubs wanting to sign him.
