Brazilian sensation Messinho is reportedly waiting to see if Barcelona come calling before making a call on his future.

The youngster is in demand and has clubs such as Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea and PSG pushing hard for his signature, according to Mundo Deportivo.

The interest from the European giants mean that Palmeiras are also keen for Messinho to make a decision on his future as they eye a big payday.

However, it seems that Barcelona are the youngster’s top choice and he’s hoping the club will be able to make an approach.

Messinho has already spoken about his future and made it clear it’s his dream to play for the Catalan giants.

Finances, as always, are the club’s problem when it comes to Messinho. He has a 60 million euro termination clause and he’s hoping Barca can match it.

That seems difficult right now, unless the club can find some kind of agreement with Palmeiras. MD add that Messinho’s agent Andre Cury is set to meet Deco and Joan Laporta to discuss the youngster soon.

Messinho is still only 16 which means he can’t move yet and any transfer won’t take place until 2025 when he’s turned 18.
