Newcastle United Pursues Brazilian Wonderkid Riquelme Filipi
According to sources at A Bola , the Magpies are closely monitoring the promising attacker, who has become the latest sensation from Palmeiras to attract interest from both Premier League and European clubs.
It’s worth noting that regulations in Brazil prohibit the transfer of young players until they reach the age of 18. This is a well-known factor for Premier League and Spanish sides. However, exceptions have been observed, with clubs like Real Madrid securing deals for young talents, exemplified by the substantial €60 million investment in Endrick.
Palmeiras seems to be open to significant bids for their emerging talents, evident in the case of Riquelme Filipi, who has now become the subject of interest for Newcastle United. Despite the regulatory challenges, the Magpies are reportedly eager to initiate discussions for the transfer of the 17-year-old attacker.
The trend extends beyond Filipi, with other notable talents like 16-year-old Estevao Willian also capturing the attention of top clubs, including Manchester United. The prospect of securing young, exceptional talents like Filipi underscores the progress Newcastle has made under the management of Eddie Howe and the ownership of the Saudi Arabian consortium.
Acquiring a player of Filipi’s caliber, who has already represented Brazil at the U-17 level, would not only be a testament to Newcastle’s rising stature but also place them on the radar of global football powerhouses such as Manchester City, Real Madrid, and Barcelona, all keenly monitoring the emerging talents in Brazilian football.
