Manchester United set to launch £25m bid to beat Tottenham to the signing of teenage sensation

The Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern have been discussing who the long term solution to their left back problem could be.

With Luke Shaw frozen out by Jose Mourinho and converted winger Ashley Young currently filling that left back spot, it is clear that Manchester United could be about to swoop for a new left sided full back in the January transfer window.

According to The Sun, Ryan Sessegnon is Jose Mourinho’s number one target.

The Fulham teenager is continuing to impress this summer after resisting the urge to make a Premier League switch in favour of gaining valuable first team football at Craven Cottage.

The 17-year-old is one of the standout performers for the Championship outfit and his top performances have encouraged potential admirers to press ahead with attempts to sign him.

Man United are looking to steal a march to capture one of the most in-demand youngsters in English football ahead of Tottenham Hotspur.

The Red Devils are reportedly ready to submit a £25m bid for the England youth international and include a provision allowing Sessegnon to return to Fulham on loan for the rest of the season.

Mourinho is hoping this tempts Fulham into favouring a sale to Man United.

Landlord’s verdict

Ryan Sessegnon is one of the hottest young prospects in English football and the fight for his signature has been lengthy and entertaining.

While it might seem unfair on Luke Shaw, it is probably for the best if he looks for a new club in order to reignite his stalling career.

This opens the door for Sessegnon, who could arrive in the summer with another half season at Fulham under his belt, ready to play Premier League football.
