Man Utd ahead of Chelsea for Racing Club whiz Funes Mori

Argentine wonderkid Funes Mori is in the sights of Manchester United.

The Daily Star Sunday says the strike sensation, 19, has been in brilliant form for River Plate and has already attracted a whole host of admirers including Real Madrid and Barcelona.

Mori, who won a reality show to secure a contract with the club, has already received an offer to undergo trials with United’s ­arch-rivals Chelsea.

The talented teenager scored a stunning hat-trick against Racing Club last week and is rated as one of the hottest ­prospects in South America.

And Sir Alex Ferguson, who is happy to take his chances with South American talent, will be hoping to win the race for Mori before his European rivals get in on the act.
