Manchester United ready to pay £50m for transfer of Premier League contract rebel

Manchester United are reportedly ready to pay around £50million for the transfer of Fulham youngster Ryan Sessegnon as he stalls on signing a new contract.

The 18-year-old seems like he could be available at the end of this season as Fulham edge towards relegation from the Premier League.

On top of that, the Daily Express claim United’s interest has been sparked by his stalling contract talks at Craven Cottage, which could lead to a £50m offer.

Considered a real wonderkid, Sessegnon has long been linked with bigger clubs after shining in the Championship last season to help Fulham win promotion back to the top flight.

And while the teenager has not had the biggest impact at the top level this season, it seems he’s still on Man Utd’s radar ahead of the summer.

Sessegnon can play left-back or left midfield, so could be a useful option for MUFC in a variety of roles.

And as one of the brightest prospects in the country, one imagines the England Under-21 international could improve a great deal in a better team than this dysfunctional Fulham side.
