Kylian Mbappe’s special Real Madrid request could pose an unwanted problem for wonderkind Endrick, before he’s even arrived at the Santiago Bernabeu. Endrick is being tipped for a big future in football, with the 17-year-old considered one of the brightest talents coming out of South America.

According to reports from Spain, Real Madrid are eyeing up two Mbappe signings this summer, Kylian and his younger brother Ethan. It’s claimed that the 14-time European champions have agreed a deal that would not only see Kylian join the Spanish giants, but 17-year-old Ethan too.

It’s suggested during the Kylian to Real Madrid negotiations that Mbappe offered the La Liga outfit a proposal which would see Ethan join as well. What’s more, as per the report, Los Blancos said yes to the offer, with both Mbappe brothers said to be on their way to Madrid.

Despite his tender age, Ethan has already made his senior debut for Paris Saint-Germain, having featured three times for the first team this season. And if he does secure a move to Spain alongside brother Kylian, Ethan’s arrival could cause problem for one starlet Real Madrid already have on their books.

That’s because Brazilian ace Endrick is set to join Real Madrid at the end of the season, having agreed a move from South American side Palmeiras. Despite already signing on the dotted line at the Bernabeu, regulations prevent Endrick from moving to the club until he’s turned 18, with the soonest window for him to play for Real Madrid in the summer.

It could mean Endrick loses out key time to his competitors within the Real Madrid squad, especially Ethan Mbappe, should the Frenchman join as well. While the pair don’t play in the exact same position, it’s unlikely Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti will be handing out substantial minutes to more than one teenager in the starting XI.

Couple that with the expected arrival of Kylian – who does play the same position as Endrick – and it could pose a problem down the line. Many teenagers have come over from South America and struggled to cut it in the European game, with the adaptations necessary already difficult enough, without extra competition for places.

Of course, it’s far too early to say whether Endrick will even feature that much for Real Madrid anyway, with the forward yet to play football of any kind in Europe. But if Real Madrid make a double Mbappe acquisition in the summer, the teenage sensation could find his time on the pitch limited from the off.
