Alan Guimaraes is the last in line of talents to emerge from Brazilian football.
The Under-17 Brazilian starlet is beginning to cause plenty of attention with major European clubs thanks to his impressive performances for club and country.
Alan first grabbed the eye with a string of sublime displays in the South American Under-17 Championship where he helped Selecao claim the title after going unbeaten in the tournament.
The talented attacking midfielder then fully flourished at the FIFA Under-17 World Cup in India where Brazil are taking on England in the semifinals on Monday.
The Palmeiras youngster will once again be given a chance to display his talents under the watchful eye of many a scout following the tournament.
Alan Guimaraes is said to have already attracted quite an interest from around Europe with Real Madrid being touted as the biggest favourites to secure his signature.
The Spanish media outlets last week reported Los Blancos have all but grabbed the talented teenager but the latest news suggest such claims are premature as the likes of Liverpool, Manchester United and Liverpool are still in the running for the lad.
Alan is under a €50 million release clause at Palmeiras with two more years in his deal with the Brazilian powerhouse.
