Manchester United have reportedly opened discussions with Fulham for Ryan Sessegnon this summer.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insists United will move for the right players rather than simply bringing in marquee names to the club, and now according to Sky News, ‘United have stepped up their interest in the 18-year-old and are looking to beat long-term admirers Tottenham Hotspur as well as the likes of Juventus, PSG and RBG Leipzig in the race to buy him.’
Ryan Sessegnon has only a year left on his contract with Fulham, and is refusing to commit his future the club, following a relegation back to the championship, after just one season in the Premier League.
The 18-year-old will reportedly favour a move to Tottenham Hotspur over Manchester United. With the Evening Standard claiming Sessegnon is keen to stay in London, play in the Champions League and work with Mauricio Pochettino given his track record with young British talent.
However, Spurs have made no official attempt to sign the English Star, and United could capitalize on this to sign the player.
At 18, Ryan Sessegnon has made an impressive 120 senior appearances for Fulham, scoring 25 goals and providing 18 assists. Including a 15 goal haul last season to help Fulham gain a promotion to the Premier League.
Sessegnon would rather not feature in the championship, following Fulham’s recent relegation. And are the club willing to let him leave this summer for the right price, rather than have him leave as a free agent next summer.
