Manchester United have reportedly made a ‘super offer’ for Palmeiras wonder kid Messinho as they look to beat Real Madrid to his signature, Harry Watkinson reports for Team Talk


Sir Jim Ratcliffe is keen to make Old Trafford the best place to develop the hottest prospects in the world, and the 16-year-old certainly fits into that category.


Man Utd has been criticized for spending significant sums on lackluster players since Sir Alex Ferguson’s departure from the club. Ratcliffe has said he would prefer to sign ‘the next Kylian Mbappe’ rather than continue that trend.


“It’s not that clever. He was buying Mbappe in a way. Anyone could figure that one out. But what is much more challenging is to find the next Mbappe or the next [Jude] Bellingham or the next Roy Keane,” he said.


Estevao Willian has earned the name ‘Messinho’ due to his supposed similarities with the disputed GOAT Lionel Messi, which is highly praised.


The teenager generally plays as a winger and has only made five senior appearances for Palmeiras so far, but his youth-level performances have earned him rave reviews.


Real Madrid has been pursuing a deal with Messinho for some time and hopes that he will replicate Brazilian Vinicius Junior’s success at the Bernabeu.


However, fresh reports suggest that Man Utd will look to hijack Real Madrid’s move for the youngster.


Man Utd ‘willing to pay over €90m’ for Brazilian superstar


According to reports from Spain, as noted by our friends at Football365, Man Utd has already lodged a ‘super offer’ for Messinho as they try to lure him to the Premier League.


Real Madrid is continuing to scour the transfer market for another superstar, Endrick, who is set to join them at the end of the season. They have ‘found a new gem in Messinho.’


Man Utd is ‘willing to go all out and offer more than €90m (approx. £77m) on Palmeiras’ table to secure’ Messinho’s signature ahead of Carlo Ancelotti’s side.


It’s claimed that none of the talented attacker’s other suitors would be willing to pay that amount for him, and therefore, the Red Devils are now considered favorites to bring him in.


Erik ten Hag has reportedly ‘asked club chiefs’ to make a ‘significant financial effort to achieve Messinho’s signing,’ so he is a player for Man Utd supporters to keep a close eye on over the next few months.
