CHELSEA have suffered a blow in their pursuit of wonderkid Endrick after falling behind their rivals in negotiations.
Paris Saint-Germain are the only team to have put forward an official proposal to sign him from Palmeiras.
Speaking to Canal do Nicola, Endrick’s father Douglas revealed: “Paris Saint-Germain are the only club that opened negotiations with Palmeiras with an official proposal, as things stand.
“There are many club from different countries keen on signing him. PSG have already moved.”
Both have been linked with a move for the 16-year-old alongside Chelsea and PSG.
However, given the way Ronaldo spoke about the club in his recent tell-all interview with Piers Morgan, that factor may have been rendered mute.
He said: “I’m not gonna answer about my future club. Of course, I’d like to play Champions League in 2, 3 or 4 years.
“I’m open to all the clubs, waiting for the best proposal for me and my family.”
Clubs could sign the Brazilian, who scored 165 goals in 169 games at youth level, for £51million due to a release clause inserted into his contract.
