Its very funny read some previous comments for people that never saw this kid playing. I am from Brasil and I guarantee that this guy will be in 2 or 3 years the best player of the world...he is unbelievable complete for his age… usually great players when young doesn’t know kick, pass or position in the field, but this guy do all things in a fine way...if Chelsea get him, they will have a player similar for Ronaldo in Barcelona 1997-1998 ouh he is very good heading the ball too..Astonish!!!!!
