looks like Chelsea are about to lose out on the signing of one of their key targets that they have been working hard on trying to sign recently.
The Blues have a number of big transfer deals that they are looking to get done in the next couple of transfer windows, but they have some major competition for most.
One player they have been trying to sign is 16-year-old up and coming talent Endrick from Palmeiras. The Brazilian sensation is already touted to be the next big thing in football, and Chelsea were prepared to pay a lot of money to land him.
But so are other clubs, and it looks like Chelsea are about to lose this one to European giants Real Madrid, according to Fabrizio Romano.
As you can see from his tweet below, Real Madrid are closing in on signing the young starlet, who is set to soon become a superstar.
