What did Romano say about Sesko to Newcastle and Man United?

Speaking on his Youtube channel, Fabrizio Romano stated: “There are many clubs well-informed on him, including Newcastle. Many clubs are following this boy. Let’s see [whether] Salzburg will decide if they want to sell the player this summer, because the original plan was to sell Sesko in summer 2023 and not now.

“But, in case top clubs like Manchester United or other Premier League clubs like Newcastle, will decide to be on it, in this case, the situation could change. But as of now, they are following him and remember the name – Benjamin Sesko, really talented boy.”

Newcastle have been searching for a striker all summer and have had no luck so far. It is unclear whether the Magpies will make a move for Sesko this summer but it is confirmed that the 19-year-old is another name on their list.
