Pele in talks with One Direction?

Retired Brazilian footballer Pele is a One Direction fan.

The 73-year-old star made a ''surprise appearance'' at Estadio Morumbi in Sao Paulo on Saturday night (10.05.14) where Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan and Liam Payne were performing as part of their 'Where We Are Tour'.

Coming up on a big screen for a cameo, he said: ''I admire and love you.

''I play the guitar and one day we'll play together. I don't want to play football, we'll play guitar, OK? Welcome to Brazil again and good luck.''

The sportsman is reportedly in talks with the boys to collaborate and perform with them.

A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: ''Pele does a lot of work for charity and is keen to make this happen. He is an enthusiastic amateur musician and genuinely excited about the prospect of playing guitar with Niall.

''At the moment a list of potential dates and venues are being discussed but it is looking likely that this will happen. Obviously the boys say they are happy to wear the Brazil shirts in return.''
