    I disagree with some points:
    1 - i think you're too generous with the spaniards and too harsh with some Brazilian prospects here...i know when we talk about Brazilian players some europeans will say we're biased; but in the end the pitch will talk and the truth its the truth..

    2 - Willian(RB) was out for months due to some "problems" with his contract and only now he's backing in form, but when fit he would walk at any Brazilian side and in 90% of the biggest european sides.
    If Willian was trainning week in week out in Manchester City, dont you think he would be a starter?? WHO is better RB than him IN THE CITY OF MANCHESTER????

    3 - man, Thiago Maia is top player...watch that goal in their debut in the Libertadores last month..look that left...

    4 - Richarlison(Fluminense) can play in the 3 positions up front, scores half his goals with the left and half with the right, skillful and can defend.
    Lets say that he keeps his current form, dont you prefer to see him over FIRMINO in the nt?

    5- LUAN...i dont think he's in his peak.
    He's a bit slow but has a colossal football IQ.
    I know what i saw: he cant finish as good as Neymar, but still he was better than Neymar and Gabriel Jesus in the olimpics...his problem is that he plays in the South of the country and they dont have international media and marketing...you need to be Ronaldinho to call international attention there...if he was playing in the same level in some club of Sao Paulo or Rio you would see the international sites talking about him every week like they did with Gabriel...watch his two golazos yesterday in the Libertadores.
    Again: Luan or Firmino as false 9???? Who has better first touch? Who can pass the ball better? They have the same level of finishing, but Luan is more a 10; he's only playing central because Gremio dont had a top 9.
    After the olimpics when he was not named to the nt he looked depressed for months, but apparently is back on fire now.
    He's the 10 of my nt.

    6- VINICIUS JUNIOR...i dont know if he will be a bellow-average player in the future, i dont know the future; but if you watch Neymar with 16, in the same tournaments, you need to say that Vinicius is better than that 16 years old Neymar..and he scores more.
    In fact i think he will be a 9 soon like Gabriel.

    Now a biased comment: DON ALAN INIESTA will be the next 10 of Man City in the future.

    As a passionate follower of the Paraguayan U-16 league I can't believe City is not in for the Rubio Ñú reserve fullback. Sort it out, Txiki!!!

    I took the current form to analyse it. Santos are playing poorly and so is Thiago Maia. William isn't playing that good as well. He is being good for Brasileirão level for a 22 years old player but I don't think he will be a GREAT player at European level.

    Firmino failed for the National Team but this isn't a fair question. If you ask for any Brazilian if he prefers David Luiz or Miranda playing for the NT most of them will say Miranda but David Luiz is a way better at club level.

    Luan was better than Jesus and Gabigol (Neymar was the best in Brazilian squad for sure) in the Olympics but Jesus was 19 years old and Luan 23 years old. Do you think in the next Olympics in 2020 when Jesus will be 23 years old as well he will be at the same level? Luan some times plays that good as he played yesterday against the Deportes Iquique and some times he is a lazy player. He isn't a 10 or a 9, he is a second striker.

    Richarlison is a good prospect but do you think he deserves more than a 7/10 if Miguel Borja is 8/10 and Gabriel Jesus 10/10?

    Did you watch him playing? He is definitely a left winger. I don't think he scores that much like Neymar did and the game I have watched I didn't see he being too above from Alanzinho, Pedrinho and Lincoln. But he is being classy for sure.

    The hype is already too much for Vinicius Jr. mainly by people who only see the same clips recycled. Lincoln is def someone else to watch.

    Barca have a deal with Yerry Mina like we have a deal with Rulli even being the team that helped him move to Palmeiras. Barca also extended their first option on him until 2018 after the World Cup. Yerry stated that he wanted to play in Copa Libertadores and the league season with Palmeiras and they were able to work things out for all parties involved. If he keeps professing it's a slim chance he ends up anywhere other than Barca.

    Remember seeing Caio in the Toulon Tournament a good few years back now and he absolutely run the show from midfield in that Brazil team.

    I think he plays more as a central defender now as we saw during the Olympics but either way he is one to keep an eye on.

    Strangely, I think Atletico tried signing him not last summer but the summer before but failed a medical.

    It was Sevilla and São Paulo just turned it down. He has since renewed his contract to 2021. He also is now carrying an Italian passport.

    If you could sign one player from South American domestic football this summer to join our first team squad, who would it be?
