The teenager looks set to become Brazil’s next export to European football, with heavyweight trio Barcelona, Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain all looking to bring him to their respective leagues.

Juve—who advanced to the final of the Champions League after aggregate victory over Real Madrid on Tuesday evening—have already attempted to sign the wonderkid.

However, a bid of €12 million was rejected by Flu during the last winter market, and the Old Lady have been made to wait.

In the intervening months, the 18-year-old has attracted more suitors, with both PSG and Barca keeping tabs according to Globo Esporte.

However, it is believed that a fee of at least €15 million would be required to bring the forward to Europe.

Real Madrid, Inter Milan, Manchester City and Chelsea have also been linked to the youngster.
