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.

"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."

This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
