It is that Ronaldinho's son has shown in his short career to have things very similar to his father and that is why many teams are already interested in buying him. A rumor in the Spanish media claims that Joao Mendes could be one of those chosen by FC Barcelona to be the future successor to Lionel Messi.
Ronaldinho was like a father for Lionel Messi since Messi arrived at the first team of FC Barcelona, the Brazilian sponsored him and guided him to become the best player in the world. If it hadn't been for Ronaldinho, Lionel Messi would surely have made it difficult for him to adapt to FC Barcelona.
The friendship between Lionel Messi and Ronaldinho is very good and that could facilitate the arrival of Joao Mendes to FC Barcelona. Ronaldinho's son has great ability and has things very similar to his father. From FC Barcelona they would be very excited to have Ronaldinho's heir on their team.
At age 14, Joao Mendes had already signed a contract with Cruzeiro until at least his 20s. Joao Mendes wants to follow in Ronaldinho's footsteps and become one of the best players in the world. For that, FC Barcelona could be one of the best places since Ronaldinho knows the inside of the team very well.
