Liverpool, Man Utd and Arsenal are all interested in signing Brazilian teenage sensation Alan Guimaraes according to the latest transfer gossip.
However, the English trio may miss out to Real Madrid who reportedly have a verbal agreement with the youngster’s agents.
The English trio may have to splash out £50 million, the reported release clause, if they are to see off the European champions.
Alan caught the attention of the big clubs following some very impressive performances for the Brazilian U17’s in both the South American U17 championships and the U17 world cup.
The 17-year-old, who plies his trade for Brazilian side Palmeiras, is regarded as one of the best teenagers in world football and even at £50 million, his release clause may be seen as a bargain price in years to come.
It is now up to the English sides to put a concrete offer on the table if they are to deny Real Madrid in the race to land the wonderkid.
