Barcelona have snapped up 14 year-old Brazilian whizkid Paulo Henrique Sena Pereira.

Sena Pereira was identified at the Zico 10 academy in Rio de Janeiro in the favela of Cidade de Deus. The academy was established in an area of the city where once drug traffickers ruled.

The teen will first join Barca's soccer school in the outskirts of Rio for six months before moving to Spain to join the club's academy.
