Brazilian whizkid Endrick has deleted a social media post praising Lionel Messi after he helped Argentina reach the World Cup final.
The 16 year-old Palmeiras striker was among the millions to hail the Argentina captain after their 3-0 semifinal win against Croatia.
Endrick wrote: “Messi is absurd, man, that’s it”.
But the post did not go down well with Real Madrid fans given Messi’s status as a Barcelona legend and Endrick quickly deleted it.
Despite rival interest from Chelsea and Barca, Endrick is expected to sign for Real Madrid and his actions this morning have all but confirmed the deal.
