Losers - Manchester United

According to reports from The Sun, Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United are all chasing Santos prodigy Gabriel Barbosa. 

The 19-year-old forward is the latest prodigious talent to emerge from a club that has also produced the likes of Pele, Robinho and Neymar – all of whom have made in excess of 69 appearances for the Brazilian national team.

Barbosa – also known as Gabigol – has already earned comparisons with the Ballon d’Or contending the Barcelona star after finishing up with 21 goals for two consecutive seasons with the Serie A outfit. He also allegedly scored over 600 times during an affluent youth career.

The teenager is tipped to become the latest Brazilian prospect to take European football by storm and three of the Premier League’s biggest clubs – Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United – have already taken an interest in his future services.

Landing Barbosa anytime soon, however, will likely require activating his £40million release clause and Barcelona represent another potential stumbling block. They have first refusal on the youngster until 2018 and he reportedly has his heart set on following Neymar to the Nou Camp.
