Bebeto's son, Flamengo youngster Mattheus, is reportedly close to joining Italian giants Juventus.
A fee in the region of €2million has been agreed for the 18-year-old Brazilian to make the move to Europe.
Flamengo's director of football Paulo Pelaipe has confirmed that negotiations over the player are at an advanced stage.
"There is only one document left, which will come from Italy, but the deal is almost certain," he told Lancenet.
Mattheus was the newly-born child who sparked the famous baby-cradling celebrations between Bebeto, Romario and Mazinho after the former's goal against Holland at the 1994 World Cup.
Coincidentally, Mazinho's son Thiago Alcantara has also gone on to become a professional footballer playing for Barcelona and Spain.
