Barcelona snap up 13-year-old 'Korean Messi'

Saturday, March 6, 2010

European champions Barcelona have reportedly seen off competition from bitter rivals Real Madrid for 13-year-old South Korean sensation Park Sheng-Ho.

According to Sport, Park is wanted by both Barça and Real, but is now set to join up with the Blaugrana academy, having impressed the club's coaches during a recent visit to Catalunya.

Barcelona coaching staff admit they have never seen a player with so much ability at Ho's age since Lionel Messi.

The youngster has returned home to South Korea and is expected to complete his transfer to the Catalan giants in the summer.

Park is well known in his homeland, having already signed a sponsorship deal with Nike and dubbed the 'Messi of Korea' by local football pundits.
