coThe Brazilian is seen as a sensation in his homeland and The Boeren know him from Canon Lion City Cup in Singapore where he last season made an indelible impression.

Da Silva plays in a number 10 role just behind the striker.

Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City have all been linked with Matheus but he prefers a move to Eindhoven as he can not only get an immediate work permit but sees the club as a good breeding ground for himself.

PSV are looking at family ties to get him a European passport but should that fail the club must wait till the player turns 18.
