Real Madrid and Barcelona are battling for 14 year-old Argentine whiz Mauro Icardi.

Icardi is currently tied to Vecindario and has already visited Barcelona on invitation of scouting director Josep Boada.

"Until the summer we remain here," said Mauro's Dad, Juan Carlos. "The boy must go to school and we do not want that he breaks suddenly with his circle of friends. We will see what happens."
