River Plate striker Rogelio Funes Mori has likened himself to Argentine legend Hernan Crespo.

Funes Mori has been tracked by Manchester United and Manchester City this season and the 19 year-old is expected to move Europe sooner rather than later.

He said: "I compare myself to Crespo, one of my idols, but there are many other players who people liken me to like Aimar, Saviola and Higuain.

"My characteristics? I'm good in the air and have strong heading ability, but I also have a very good technique and can drop back into midfield when needed."
