Huracan superkid Matias De Federico is under consideration by Barcelona.

Barca sports chief Txiki Begiristain and coach Pep Guardiola have been studying DVDs of the 20 year-old in the last week as they consider moving for the midfielder this summer.

Getafe are also interested in De Federico, who has been likened to Lionel Messi, along with Catania.

Indeed, Catania have already opened talks with Huracan over a knockdown fee of £2 million for De Federico.
