The eight-year-old might be good, but he’s snow Messi…
Chelsea and Manchester United have missed out on eight-year-old footballing prodigy Claudio Gabriel Nancufil, reports the Mirror.
The player has been dubbed ‘Snow Messi’, because he plays for small Argentine junior club Bariloche, at the foot of the Andes mountain range.
Real Madrid and Barcelona have apparently nipped in ahead of the Premier League giants to secure trials with the phenomenally gifted young star.
Nancufil is now signed to sports agency Sueno Comunicaciones, who have agreed him fortnight long trial periods with the two Spanish giants.
The tiny left-footed attacker has wowed football fans worldwide with his ball control, and the ease in which he drifts past children almost a foot taller than him.
