Juventus CEO reveals signing Bebeto's son Mattheus would be for the future
Juventus general manager Beppe Marotta has revealed that the potential capture of Brazil legend Bebeto's son Mattheus would be a signing for the future.
The Italian club met with Flamengo officials on Friday and struck a deal which will see the Brazilian club receive approximately €2 million for their 80% ownership of the Seleção Under-20 star.
The club’s CEO has stated that whilst signing Nicholas Anelka is only a short-term solution, signing the 18-year-old is for the future.
Marotta told Sky Sport 24: "We will make important investments in July. We could have spent money this month but we have to be shrewd and rational.
"Bebeto['s son]? He is an important name but he was only born in 1994 so it will take time to fully understand his qualities. We have not signed him yet."
Flamengo have agreed the sale of the youngster, whose current contract expires at the end of 2013, after Bebeto and MFD, the agency managing his career, made it clear that Mattheus would not be extending his stay at the Gavea.
