Real Madrid intensifies pursuit of Brazilian Wonderkid as U-17 World Cup unfolds




In the vibrant arena of youth football at the U-17 World Cup in Indonesia, Estevao Willian, fondly known as ‘Messinho,’ has not only captured the spotlight but also the keen interest of European football juggernaut Real Madrid.

Real Madrid’s strategic moves

Real Madrid, renowned for its shrewd eye for emerging talents, made decisive moves by engaging in persistent communication with Palmeiras, the current club of the 16-year-old forward.

The Spanish giants are leaving no stone unturned, employing a representation firm associated with them through Vinicius to facilitate potential negotiations.

This strategic interest underlines Real Madrid’s commitment to securing promising talents for their future campaigns.

Release clause and escalating bids

Estevao, having inked his first professional contract with Palmeiras in April, carries a substantial release clause of €60 million.

The allure of this young Brazilian talent has prompted Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) to make a noteworthy bid, starting at €40 million and later raising it to €50 million.

However, Real Madrid faces competition not only from PSG but also from other European heavyweights such as Barcelona, Manchester City, Manchester United, and Chelsea.

Messinho’s’ Barcelona dream amidst growing interest

Despite the escalating interest from multiple clubs, ‘Messinho’ holds a dream close to his heart – the dream of donning the colors of Barcelona. This aspiration, revealed in an interview with MD, aligns with the player’s vision for his future.

Barcelona, too, is keeping a watchful eye on the situation, but the competition is fierce, especially with Real Madrid’s persistence, drawing parallels to their successful acquisitions of Vinicius and Rodrygo.
