As SPORT reported, Barcelona are interested in Vinicius Jr, Flamengo's 16 year old prodigy. And now he has spoken about the club's interest.
"It's clear that I've read the information saying Barcelona are following me, and, for me it's an honour. But this is not new news, because I already knew it, they were watching me from the South American U15 Championship that I played two years ago with Brazil."
"The chase has increased a lot but I am calm, I will try to do my work as best as I can at Flamengo," said the forward. He scored four goals and gave five assists at the Copinha, the U20 tournament in which he shot to fame.
