Manchester United and Chelsea are chasing Hamburg striker Son Heung-Min.

The People says Sir Alex Ferguson’s scouts are camped out at Hamburg for the exciting young attacker, who could be sold for around ­£10million this summer.

And Rafa Benitez’s Chelsea – who would love an Asian idol in their squad – are also keen on the youngster, whose ­dazzling skill and goals are being compared to ­Cristiano Ronaldo.

The tall 20-year-old has been a regular for the South Korean national side since his debut three seasons ago.

Fergie has sent the Old Trafford club's top scouts to watch Son recently and he could find a place in his squad – and also appeal to the commercial side at Old Trafford.

Chelsea are even more aware of Son’s ­attraction in the Far East, where he could easily become the most significant ­player in the next ­decade if he continues to improve.
