Real Madrid are reportedly chasing FC Barcelona youngster Seung-Woo Lee, who has been dubbed the ‘Asian Messi’.

The 17-year-old Korean joined Barcelona’s famous academy, La Masia, in 2011 and is reportedly a transfer target of the Catalan's long-standing rivals based on their new transfer strategy.

Los Blancos have signed a couple of promising talents, among them Norwegian sensation Martin Odegaard, this season in attempt to build a strong future XI.

Lee reportedly looks like a minuscule Messi, dribbling past opponens at will, scoring crazy goals and basically being able to do with the ball whatever he wants.

In his home country, South Korea, Lee is already a superstar ever since his move to Barcelona. His performances with South Korea’s junior teams have grown his popularity in Asia, a market which is very attractive to Los Blancos.

Lee is reportedly one of the underaged minors that the club signed, which was the reason for Barcelona’s transfer ban until 2016, and Marca claim he can only make his competitive debut when he turns 18 next January.

If Real Madrid did indeed lure the teen-sensation to the Bernabeu, it would surely not improve the already tense relationship with their Catalan rivals.
