United make Sessegnon contact

Manchester United have made initial contact with Fulham over the possibility of signign Ryan Sessegnon, according to Sky Sports and their sources.

Tottenham Hotspur and Juventus are also said to be interested in the left-footed wide player, but neither of them have taken any concrete steps towards pursuing the interest.

Sessegnon is apparently not very willing to play another season in the Championship after spending one in the Premier League and is open to top-flight offers, and he fits United’s needs as a young, homegrown talent. The 19-year-old’s 2018/19 season hasn’t been exactly smooth. Following the sacking of Slaviša Jokanović and the appointment of Claudio Ranieri back in November, he wasn’t playing as regularly as under the Serbian coach, and when Scott Parker took over towards the end of the campaign he was shifted on the right flank to make way for Ryan Babel.

He is still very highly rated and in demand, and if United don’t wrap the deal quickly, other suitors will likely come into the picture.
