Barcelona attempt to hijack Chelsea’s move to sign sensational ‘Messinho’

Barcelona are reportedly attempting to hijack Chelsea’s deal to sign a sensational player who is often referred to as ‘Messinho’ after comparisons to legend Lionel Messi.

We often hear about the next Messi or the the next Cristiano Ronaldo etc etc, but these are some huge boots to fill and the likelihood is that we will never see another Lionel Messi, because he is a unique one of a kind.

However, wonderkid Estevao Willian from Palmeiras is certainly gaining some rave reviews from the footballing world coming through as the next biggest thing to break onto the scene, at the tender age of just 16.

According to The Daily Mirror, Chelsea have been working on a move for the 16-year-old sensation since October. But they now face competition from Barcelona, who are looking to try and pip Chelsea to the deal now.

Willian has a release clause worth £51million but no club has committed to triggering it just yet.
