Spain's big three are chasing Argentine whizkid Claudio Gabriel Nancufil.

Nancufil has been dubbed the 'Messi de la nieve' and is set to trial with Real Madrid, Barcelona and Atletico Madrid over Christmas.

"After Christmas, 'Claudito' will trial with three Spanish teams and, from there, we'll see what each of them offer us," said agent Lolo Otero.

"The British BBC is preparing a documentary prior to the World Cup, and for Argentina want to link the past, present and future. To do this, they're trying to talk to Diego Armando Maradona, Lionel Messi and Claudio Ñancufil."
