The Lowdown: United interest
The Red Devils appear to be keen on bolstering their attacking ranks in the final weeks of the window, with Cristiano Ronaldo’s Old Trafford future up in the air.
RB Salzburg striker Sesko, who Romano described as a ‘very, very good’ player, has emerged on United’s radar, with the Italian journalist revealing contact between officials in Manchester and the teenager’s agent last week.
It looks as if there have been more talks since on the verge of the new season, with Erik ten Hag currently going into his first campaign in charge with just two senior centre-forward options.
The Latest: Romano’s update
Romano took to Twitter on Wednesday afternoon to provide a further update on Sesko. He claimed that Chelsea have spoken with Sesko’s representatives, adding that United have now had ‘more than one direct meeting’.
The transfer expert stated that a decision is up to the player in the next days, with Salzburg keen to keep him for a further 12 months.
The Verdict: Get it done
Sesko appears to be a future star, already scoring 36 senior goals for club and country. He only turned 19 in May and has been dubbed “the new Erling Haaland” by football talent scout Jacek Kulig for his combination of size and speed.
The Slovenia international stands at 6 foot 5, so you’d like to think he’d have no problems adapting to the physical demands of the Premier League, so securing his services now could sort United’s attacking plans for the foreseeable.
