Flamengo have informed Barcelona and Real Madrid they will have to spend at least €30m to land teenage striker Lincoln, say reports in Spain.
The 16-year-old starred at the recent Under-17 World Cup, where he scored three goals and put in a string of impressive displays and has now been promoted to Flamengo’s first-team squad.
Marca cites a report in Calciomercato which states the two Spanish giants are set to go head-to-head for the striker’s signature.
Madrid have already a pre-agreement with his teammate Vinicius Junior and Los Blancos are confident their strong relationship with the Brazilian side could help them pip Barca to Lincoln.
The 16-year-old is renowned for possessing good pace and acting as a focal point in attack, with a keen eye for goal.
Peruvian Paolo Guerrero is Flamengo’s current first-choice striker although he faces a one-month suspension having tested positive in a doping test taken after the recent international clash with Argentina.
