FC Barcelona and Brazil legend Rivaldo has revealed that his son might soon follow in his footsteps after being linked with a move to Spain.

Rivaldinho, 25, currently plies his trade in with Romania with Viitorul Constanta, but has been linked with a move to LaLiga in recent weeks.

"There were recent rumours mentioning that my son Rivaldinho may join a Spanish club soon and I'm happy to see he is being connected to a big league," Rivaldo said in his weekly Betfair column.

"At the moment, it is just speculation and there's nothing sealed, but I hope it can happen because it's his dream. At 25, it could be the right moment to take this step as he is reaching his career peak.

"He dreams of playing on the same stages where I played, so let's wait for the market and see if something will come up. Currently, he is relaxed and happy in Romania, but a player always looks to improve his conditions and fulfil his dreams.

"Of course, it isn't easy to be Rivaldo's son and sometimes people compare us when that makes no sense – and even harms him a little bit. We played in different positions and have distinct styles of play, so those comparisons are simply unreasonable.

"It's not easy to follow your father steps, especially when I was in the spotlight worldwide for many years, but he has his own personality and wants to make his own history. He has been working well in the clubs he passed by, scoring some goals and he is a very professional and dedicated kid.

"He loves football and perhaps that was inherited from me. I wish all the best to him, not only because of being his father but also because he is an excellent professional with a big devotion to the game."
