Italian football giants Juventus have signed a ten-year-old Palestine soccer wonder boy dubbed the “Palestinian Messi” with the club.

Rashed Al-Hajjawi, who was born in Norway in 2006, was discovered after videos of him playing football went viral. The Series A champions apparently moved quickly to bring the player to their youth academy following interests from several other clubs.

Al-Hajjawi will join the Juve Under-10 team before working his way up the ranks. Although he starts training on Monday, it will be a while before he joins first-team.

Fans have called him “the amazing young wonderkid” and applauded his achievements.
