Brazil has always been a country where very young and talented players appeared. Pele, Ronaldo Nazario, Ronaldinho and Neymar are just the most emblematic cases of soccer legends who had an impressive career as a professional player and marked history.
But recently a very young kid appeared and surprised everyone. His name is Kauan Basile, and he is only eight years old. Those who saw him playing assure that he is set to transform into the new Pele and that his career in the future as a pro-player will be similar as the one of the historical idol.
He also plays for Santos FC, as Pele did during the biggest amount of time of his career. Nowadays, he represents the indoor soccer U-9 team from the Brazilian side. He wears the jersey no. 10, prof that he has talent, and is also the captain of the team at his very short age.
Recently, Kauan signed an impressive contract with Nike, transforming into the youngest soccer player to do such a thing. Usually, the brands wait until the players are older to sign this type of contracts, but this time they are very sure of the talent of the kid and wanted to make sure that nobody steal them.
