For the most part of this century, Real Madrid and FC Barcelona have essentially defined football. Though their time as the Galacticos was not particularly successful on the field, Los Blancos had the biggest names on the globe during that era. The game would then be irrevocably altered by the Catalan giants, who would go on to field maybe the greatest squad in club football history. Once again, under Zinedine Zidane’s leadership, the scales were tipped in favor of the Champions League three-peat.
Real Madrid and Barcelona have emerged as the two most successful club teams of this century. Of course, a number of generations of football players have grown up dreaming of being their teammates.
Estevao is currently one of the best football players in Brazil. He is a 16-year-old player for Palmeiras right now. However, it appears inevitable that he will be signed by one of the top teams in Europe.
It is thought that Real Madrid is interested in signing him and bringing the young Brazilian back to Santiago Bernabeu alongside Endrick. Rumor has it that PSG has previously made proposals for Estevao. However, it appears that he wants to join Barcelona.
The €60 million Real Madrid target desires to be a Barcelona player.
When asked what his greatest dream was, Estevao said as stated by Mundo Deportivo:
“Show off for Barcelona, one of the top teams in the world. That is my dream because I was born watching Neymar, Messi, and Suárez play for Barcelona.
It’s interesting to note that Estevao’s playing style has drawn comparisons to that of Messi. It is evident how the Brazilian young player’s game has been influenced by the Argentine World Cup winner.
One of the most impressive players in the current U-17 World Cup is Estevao. His reputation has only grown as a result of such performances.
Estevao hasn’t even made his Palmeiras senior debut yet. However, it appears that in order for a team to sign him, they may have to match his €60 million release clause.
