Currently being regarded as one of the best young talents in English football, Ryan Sessegnon has attracted attention from some of the big clubs from the top flight of English football.
With Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspurs already linked with Sessegnon, Manchester United have now become the latest club to express their interest in the 16-year-old left back.
According to The Mirror, the Red Devils are very much in the race for the teenager’s signature, and will be preparing to launch an offer for the teenager at the end of the season.
Sessegnon joined the Cottagers at the age of 9, and managed to quickly established himself at the Championship club. He has since developed so rapidly, that he is already being compared to Real Madrid star Gareth Bale back when the Welshman was of the same age.
Ryan has already made 25 league appearances for Fulham this season, 17 of which have been starts, and he has also bagged 7 goals all competitions. The Fulham left-back has majorly contributed in the overall success of the club this season, both on defensive and offensive ends.
Securing a place in the promotion play-offs with one game to go in the regular season, Fulham will surely be eyeing a Premier League return next season. However, several top clubs from the country in the hunt for the teenager, Fulham may fail to hold on to their their wonderkid for next season.
Left-back continues to be a problematic position at Manchester United, despite the club landing Luke Shaw for £27m in 2014.
The former Southampton man has failed to impress Jose Mourinho, and with the transfer season around the corner, United will battle it out to convince Sessegnon to make the switch to Old Trafford, with the hope that their reputation of bringing through young players will prove to be influential.
