Siena striker Souleymane Coulibaly has revealed his delight of having been linked with Real Madrid.
The Ivory Coast striker has caught the eye of a number of Europe's big club, with Madrid reportedly expressing their interest.
And the 16-year-old striker, who has labelled the 'new Didier Drogba' says he is keen to play at the highest level.
"Hearing that Jose Mourinho is interested in you is like going to Disneyland when you're a six-year-old. It is like living in a land of dreams," Coulibaly told Sky Sport Italia.
"I want to play at the highest level possible. However, I am currently a Siena player."
Coulibaly has shot to fame during this summer's Under-17 World Cup, scoring nine goals in four games for Cote d'Ivoire.
Along with Madrid, the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal had been linked with Coulibaly, and with the La Liga side's interest far from confirmed, the English trio can still be considered contenders to sign the forward.
United are keen to breath new life into their squad, despite winning a record 19th league title, following the retirement of Gary Neville and Paul Scholes.
Arsenal are expected to lose several of their big names this summer, and with Arsene Wenger's reputation of nurturing young players, Coulibaly may be tempted with a move to the Emirates Stadium.
Chelsea meanwhile, under new manage Andre Villas-Boas, are also looking to youth following a dismal end to their Premier League season.
United, Arsenal and Chelsea will all hold the carrot of Champions League football next season, but whether the trio can outbid the nine-time European Champions Madrid is unsure.
