The 18-year-old - the subject of his father's famous goal celebration at the 1994 World Cup - is currently on the books of Flamengo.

His experience of senior competition is limited, but he has offered enough during his short career to suggest that he has the potential to follow in his father's illustrious footsteps.

Reports in Italy suggest that Juve have seen enough in him to justify a five-year contract, with there only a few minor details left to iron out.

Should a move be put in place, the reigning Serie A champions would acquire another playmaker to add to their already enviable collection of creative talents.

"Everything is going okay," Mattheus' agent Vantuil Rodrigues told Lancenet.

"The last details have been agreed. Only some paperwork is needed to make the negotiations official - the fees and the contract length have been agreed.

"The paperwork should arrive any day now and, when that happens, Mattheus will travel to Italy to undergo a medical."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
