Six-year-old Madin Mohammed has been tipped to become the new Zinedine Zidane after he attracted the attention of top level talent scouts with his soccer skills.

The youngster, whose quick moves and skillfull ball control are reminiscent of the former French striker, has already been signed up to a scholarship by the national football association in France.

Chelsea and Real Madrid are among the clubs said to be keeping tabs on his progress.

The boy's family moved to France from Algeria when he was three, while French soccer legend Zidane was born in France to Algerian parents.

Christian Lazaoui, president of Roubaix, Madin's local club, told The Sun: "He has an amazing talent. He plays every day and has a great passion for football. "He can cross the ball, control it, swerve, pass between the legs – he is spectacular with the ball... he really is magic with it." According to his Dad he is still yet to perfect the flying headbutt.
