Manchester United line up £25million bid for Tottenham transfer target

Posted by

Manchester United are reportedly lining up a £25million January transfer window bid for Fulham wonderkid Ryan Sessegnon, who is also a target for Tottenham.

The Guardian claim both United and Spurs are after the highly-rated 17-year-old, who has shone immensely in the Championship to attract interest from the Premier League’s big boys.

United could do with reinforcements at left-back, with the Guardian reporting Mourinho is ready to offload Shaw in order to replace him with Sessegnon.

The report also claims that Tottenham could be potential suitors for Shaw this winter, with the England international working to great success under Mauricio Pochettino during their time together at Southampton.

It’s not like Mourinho to place much faith in young players, but he clearly rates Sessegnon highly and it’s easy to see why.

The teenager has made 24 first-team appearances for Fulham this season, scoring four goals and contributing two assists.

Sessegnon is also a versatile talent, showing some ability playing further forward in midfield.
