Real Madrid, Man Utd battle for 12yo Santos kid Chera

Only last week, Chera's Dad, Celso, met with Santos president Marcelo Teixeira to inform him he intended to take his son to Spain. Apart from a bumper offer from Real Madrid, the Cheras were also unhappy with the coaching of Alberto Vieira, who was in charge of Santos U13.

To hold onto Chera, Teixeira chose to sack Vieira, which appears to have convinced the family to keep Jean Carlos at Santos - for the time being.

Along with an offer from Real Madrid, Celso Chera revealed: "Manchester United have also already made an approach."
