Spanish giants Barcelona have signed nine-year-old prodigy Zico Jr Marecaldi from Swedsih fifth division side BK Olympic.

Zico impressed Barcelona during a recruitment camp and will move to Spain on boarding school initially.

BK Olympic said on their website: "On Wednesday Zico leaves for Barcelona for new challenges."

Zico Jr Marecaldi could follow in the footsteps of Swedish legends Henrik Larsson and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who have both played for Barcelona.

"It's going to be cool," the youngster told Swedish daily Skaanska Dagbladet.
