Lucas Rodrigues, A new point of contention between Barça and Madrid?

The struggle between the two giants of the Spanish league by Neymar could be repeated now with another Brazilian footballer.

Lucas Rodrigues Moura, 19, holds many points in common with the young star of Santos: same nationality, play style creative talent ... qualities which, as in his days with the 'Mohican', would have aroused the interest of the Madrid and Barca.

Lucas, 19, plays in midfield in the Sao Paulo team that debuted in 2010, and under-20 international for his country.

According to some sources, Barça have set their eyes on him, and despite having his position well covered, contemplate its inclusion as a future bet.

Others, however, suggest that Real Madrid has begun to negotiate and his signing. "El Confidencial' published Monday that the blancos leaders have taken the first steps in this direction. Emissaries of Madrid have contacted both the Sao Paulo and with the player's agent, Wagner Ribeiro, last September. And would have been repeated efforts in recent weeks. The intention would be that Lucas came to the Bernabeu next June.

Lucas last year renewed his contract until 2015, and has a buyout clause of 80 million edólares d, but that has not appeased the interest of other clubs. Indeed, Manchester United, City, Inter and Arsenal also have on their agenda. For 30 million, Sao Paulo would open the doors wide open. (via SPORT)
