Agent confirms Mattheus to Juventus deal
The agent of Bebeto’s son Mattheus has confirmed that the Flamengo starlet is set to join Juventus.
The 18-year-old has been linked with a move to the Turin giants ever since the turn of the year and the two clubs have now agreed a deal.
Juventus are believed to have paid a fee in the region of €1.5 million for Mattheus, who is part of the Brazil Under-20 set up.
Vantuil Goncalves, his agent, told Lancenet: "It is all OK. The last few details have been agreed upon.
"We just need one document to formalise everything, but the fee and the length of the contract have already been defined.
"As soon as this document arrives then Mattheus will travel to Italy for his medical."
Mattheus, who has been with the Rubro-negro since the age of 10, hit the headlines as soon as he was born as his father’s cradle-rocking goal celebrations during the 1994 World Cup were dedicated to his arrival.
