Chelsea & Manchester City face battle to sign Brazilian wonderkid

Manuel Pellegrini and Jose MourinhoChelsea and Manchester City fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are annoyed as talkSPORT reveal that Juventus are looking to interrupt their pursuit for Fluminense youngster Gerson.

The 17-year-old is the next best midfielder to emerge from Brazil and has been tipped to be the next superstar.

It is not just a three horse race, with scouts from Barcelona having also attended the Maracana to monitor him this season.

Despite Gerson potentially being the next superstar, punters in the Tavern are still sceptical over the move.

Punters over by the pool table are asking the question as to whether or not he will just be another youngster to arrive to England, only for him to eventually get lost in the loan market.

Because if he is as good as people claim, he will inevitably impress whilst out on loan, meaning he will return back to England, wanting first team football.

But it is highly unlikely that he will stroll into the first team of a title challenging team and he could be tempted by a move to another club, or are willing to start him in a system where he will thrive and develop.

Chelsea and Manchester City fans. What is your reaction to the opinion of the punters? Let us know your thoughts below.
