Palmeiras claimed a commanding 4-2 victory over Barcelona SC on Wednesday, which not only saw them secure a place in the 2023 Conmebol Libertadores knockout stages, but also allowed Endrick to trigger a clause in his Real Madrid deal that will please the Brazilian club.
With his successful strike against the Ecuadorian side, the Brazilian youngster reached five goals this year, forcing the Spanish giants to pay an extra €2.5 million to his current club. But the LaLiga side may have to continue paying the Verdão before he finally joins them.

Real Madrid reportedly has to pay every time Endrick scores five goals
According to the terms of the contract, each series of five goals scored by Endrick until he reaches 25 will allow Palmeiras to receive a bonus of 2.5 million euros. At 16, he’s clearly on pace to make Palmeiras continue cashing in for his goals. AS reports the deal for Endrick could rise to 72 million euros including all the add-ons in the agreement.
After spending many games on the bench, the youngster was happy to be back at the Allianz Parque. Speaking to the press post-game, he highlighted the cohesion and preparation of his team, which looked solid and determined in their recent match. Now he’s focused on the rest of the competition, ready to embrace all the challenges ahead. Real Madrid are already waiting for him, but it’s not time for that yet.
