I WANT THIS KID AT BARCELONA

Alen Halilovic is the Croatian version of Lionel Messi. Nobody is ever going to convince me I'm crazy, insane or hyping the kid too much. He is fantastic, runs, passes and looks like Messi, and he keeps playing ridiculous football.

The 20-year-old was hoping to return to Barcelona this season after a campaign on loan at Sporting Gijón, but he was sold to Hamburg, with the Blaugrana keeping a cheap buy-back clause to bring him back starting next season.

Halilovic is certainly taking the opportunity to show at Hamburg why he deserves to be a Barça player in the near future. Alen scored the game-winner in a German Cup match against FC Zwickau, and the Croatian Messi did it in style.

The goal starts with Halilovic himself stealing the ball, running by himself and placing it in the top corner. LOOK AT THE FREAKING CURVE ON THAT FREAKING SHOT.

I want you in Barcelona, Alen. Please, please, please!
