Man United, Arsenal, and City in three-way battle for Championship wonderkid

Manchester United, Arsenal, and Manchester City are set to bump heads over the signature of Fulham wonderkid Patrick Roberts, Express reports.

Roberts is currently one of the Cottager’s bright spots in the club’s horrific start to the season, which sees them sit bottom of the Championship.

Their poor performance has also seen manager Felix Magath sacked last week, and now reports suggests that the Premier League trio are looking to take Roberts – their prized asset – in the January window.

The 17-year-old still has two years remaining on his current contract, but could be swayed to return to the English top flight after playing two games for Fulham at the end of last season.

The attacker was heavily linked with a move to Man United over the summer, however Fulham’s valuation of £15million was too high for the Red Devils.

Yet if Fulham’s poor form continues, then a £10million bid should be enough for the Craven Cottage club to part ways with the highly rated youngster.
