Manchester United have continued to get linked with Fulham sensation Ryan Sessegnon.

The Red Devils are expected to table a bid for the 18-year-old, who enjoyed another incredible season at Fulham, as he helped the Cottagers get promoted back to the Premier League.

Fulham’s main target for the 2018-19 season will be to maintain a position of strength and make sure they stay alive.

For that, the side needs its main players to stay, and reports state that they aren’t looking to use Ryan’s sale to generate funds for other transfers.

Despite the developments, a number of top English clubs, including Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal, and Chelsea are monitoring the player.

But according to a report in The Sun, it is the Mancunian club that will make a £50m move for him this summer. Jose Mourinho is believed to be tracking the youngster since last summer, and feels this is the right time to make a move.

Further reports in the Sunday Express states that the player, although very much settled at Fulham, where he has spent his entire time so far, would be interested in a move to Liverpool.

The young starlet supported the Reds as a boy, and if Jurgen Klopp’s side makes a bid, then he could be tempted to move to Anfield.

The versatile wide-man was a key member of Slavisa Jokanovic’s side in the 2017-18 season. He scored an impressive 16 goals and made seven assists in 52 matches.

The Englishman was adjudged the Championship Player of the Season and the Young Player of the Season, which is why it comes as no surprise that he has so many suitors at the moment.

It will be interesting to see whether Fulham can keep him at the club and fend away the big guns this summer.
