VIDEO: 14-year-old 'new Messi' reportedly on way to Manchester City

Malaga youngster Brahim Abdelkader Diaz is set to move to England rather than Barcelona who are also after his services.

It's always daunting being mentioned in the same breath as the current Ballon d'Or holder Lionel Messi but judging from this video, Diaz has the ability to back the claim up.

The 14-year-old is currently at Malaga but after the club rejected a bid of £2.5 million from Messi's current club Barcelona, it looks as if the the child star is set to reside in England with former Malaga manager Manuel Pellegrini's side.

Is he worth paying for and gambling on his potential? Check out the video above and let us know what you think...
