FIFA 23 - Real Madrid's latest signing can be better than Mbappe



Real Madrid has just announced the signing of a Brazilian wonderkid which has taken the world by storm - and FIFA fans need to keep an eye on this one!

Remember the name Endrick, as he will almost certainly be the ultimate signing in Career Mode for the next few years.

He is so good that he could even top the list of the best player potential in the upcoming games!

Who is Endrick?

Endrick is just 16 years old and playing for Palmeiras in Brazil, but he has been highly sought after by top European clubs, seen as the best prospect from the country since Neymar!

Drawing comparisons to Brazilian greats Romario and Adriano, he is a physical forward, with great pace, tenacity and flair.

Real Madrid has just signed him on a deal worth €72 million, making it the biggest sale in Brazilian football history.

The Galacticos have had great form in snapping up other young Brazilians, with Vinicius Jr and Rodrygo both regulars in their squad, and Endrick looks set to follow in their footsteps and take over from an ageing Karim Benzema.

But just how could can this guy be?

Endrick's Rating & Potential

A short highlights reel will show off the sort of talent Madrid now has on its books and will also fill FIFA fans' hearts with joy, as he looks similar in style to R9 - an Ultimate Team favourite!

He is not yet in the game (as EA don't have the licence in place for the Brazilian league), however, we can make an educated guess on what his rating and potential will be, based on other players of a similar calibre.

Youssoffa Moukoko was another 16-year-old wonderkid people were excited to see added to the game in FIFA 22, who was given a 69 OVR and 89 POT.

Since then his rating has risen to 73 OVR in the latest update and from what we've seen Endrick is a better player than him!

We can also track the potential that Neymar has been given over the years, which peaked at 95 OVR in FIFA 17.

Taking that into account, we would expect Endrick to be given a rating of around 76 OVR, and - with the same growth progression as Moukoko - a potential of 96 OVR!

That would give him a better than Kylian Mbappe, who currently sits at the top of the tree with 95 OVR.

Only time will tell what EA decide to give him in-game, but he is definitely going to be a special player.
