Manchester United have joined Liverpool and Manchester City in the pursuit of Brazilian wonderkid Endrick, who has attracted heavy interest following his breakthrough into the Palmerias team as a 15-year-old.

Brazil remains a breeding ground for some of the most exciting young talent due to their illustrious history of producing iconic stars, and there is a new name on the scene.

It only takes one moment of brilliance in Brazil to get the whole world talking, and the rise of wonderkid Endrick has put some of Europe’s top sides on red alert.

With the likes of Gabriel Jesus and Neymar emerging out of the Brazilian league in recent times, Liverpool and Manchester City are already keeping tabs on Endrick.

But Manchester United have now got amongst the mix, and are looking to rival their Premier League opposition for his signature.

Endrick has been firing in the goals for Brazilian side Palmerias, and his recent solo goal against Real Ariquemes has attracted a lot of attention for the star who is still only 15.

Due to his age, Endrick is unable to sign a professional contract until he turns 16, which is still months away as he reaches the required age on July 21.

His current side Palmerias are desperate to tie him down to a professional deal on his 16th birthday in order to include a massive release clause in his contract to capitalise on the increasing interest in their talent.

A similar move was done by the side for Gabriel Jesus, who also played at the club before City snapped him up, and they may turn to the Brazilian side again as they look to rival Liverpool and United.

The 15-year-old has drawn comparisons to Vinicius Junior, who was signed by Real Madrid from Flamengo, and the star also coincidentally has the same agent as the Brazilian who is now a favourite with Los Blancos.

Flamengo are also in the mix for the youngster should he wish to move but stay in his homeland for the time being, but it is thought that Palmerias are desperate to hold on to Endrick before looking to cash in on their newest talent.

Endrick boasts an incredible record in the Palmerias youth set up, reportedly scoring 167 goals in 170 appearances for the Brazilian side.

The 15-year-old is most comfortable through the middle but can play anywhere across a front three, and has been utilised down the left for the first-team for large parts of the season.

City, Liverpool and United are all tracking the progress of Endrick as they ponder making an audacious move for when the star turns 16, but the Red Devils have their work cut out based on the advantages their rivals have.

City have a good relationship with Palmerias after acquiring Jesus from them, whereas Liverpool have a healthy Brazilian contingent at Anfield.

Alisson, Fabinho and Roberto Firmino are all currently enjoying life at Liverpool, although the trio were signed from European clubs, after already making moves from South America.

United do have contacts over in Brazil however, with Andreas Pereira currently on loan at Flamengo, and they too have Brazilian pairing Fred and Alex Telles in their ranks.
