After Real Madrid confirmed that there is an agreement in place to sign Brazilian wonderkid Endrick on Thursday, the Spanish giants seem to have their frontline of the future figured out.

A potential heir to Karim Benzema has been purchased, and though Endrick's lack of experience makes it difficult to project just how good he could turn out to be, that Madrid have been willing to spend up to €60 million on the 16-year-old should illustrate just how highly they rate him.

He will not, however, be gracing Santiago Bernabeu for another 18 months, with FIFA rules meaning that he cannot move to Europe until after his 18th birthday, with Madrid planning to welcome him into the fold in the summer of 2024.

And though 18 months is a long time in football, the Madrid team when Endrick finally arrives might look pretty similar to the one that lines up currently.

Yes, the likes of Toni Kroos, Luka Modric and Dani Carvajal are likely to have moved on or at least have diminished roles, but most of Madrid's presumptive XI seems to be sorted.

There are, though, some holes that need addressing, and perhaps even areas to upgrade on, with everyone knowing that Florentino Perez is not afraid to splash the cash in a bid to improve the team.

So how will Madrid line up when Endrick begins his career with the club? GOAL has attempted to figure it out...
