Chelsea’s Near Miss: Endrick Felipe’s Father Reveals Last-Minute Twist

Endrick Felipe’s potential move to Chelsea was on the brink of completion, according to statements from his father, Douglas. The family received an invitation from Chelsea’s owner, which led them to visit the club and assess various aspects, including watching a match against Arsenal and meeting key figures like Jorginho, César Azpilicueta, and Thiago Silva.

Almost a Done Deal: Douglas explained that everything seemed in order for their move to Chelsea. They were shown potential living arrangements, schools, and even introduced to someone who would help them settle. The deal was reportedly closed, with Douglas envisioning living in London despite the cold weather.

Twist in the Tale: However, at the eleventh hour, the situation took an unexpected turn. According to Douglas, the owner of Chelsea withdrew from the deal, citing concerns that the price for Endrick would inflate the market. The proposed fee was €60 million for the 16-year-old, who would arrive in the country nearly two years later.

Real Madrid Steps In: Subsequently, Real Madrid entered the picture and secured the signing of Endrick last summer in a deal initially valued at €37.5 million. The final fee could increase based on Endrick’s performance in Spain.

Rising Star: Since joining Real Madrid, Endrick’s stock has risen, winning the Brazil Serie A twice and contributing significantly to his team’s success this season with 11 goals in 31 games, ultimately securing the league title.
