Manchester United have made initial contact with Fulham about signing Ryan Sessegnon, according to a report from Sky Sports on Friday.
The outlet say that the Red Devils are the first interested party to make their move for the teenage prospect, with Tottenham and Juventus also keen on signing him up.
Having made 120 career appearances for the Cottagers at the age of just 19, he is a player with enormous potential who can add serious depth to United’s left flank next season.
With the versatility to feature both as a wing-back or as an attacking winger, he could provide back-up for both Luke Shaw and Anthony Martial.
Fulham are heading back to the Championship and Sky Sports reckon the player is not keen to return to the second-tier, so this looks like the transfer window he will finally be on the move and plenty of United fans are eager to make sure Old Trafford is his destination.
These fans have taken to Twitter recently to discuss the potential deal…
Ryan Sessegnon is a fine player, would provide competition for Shaw if we get him. #ManUnited

Sessegnon is better than Shaw.

I would understand the Sessegnon signing. We need a back up to Luke Shaw. We’ve had to play Rojo and Young at LB when he was suspended so we need a natural replacement. He can play further forward to so at £25m, I’d take him

No reason Man Utd shouldn’t be looking at signing Ryan Sessegnon and Daniel James. They’re both talented young, versatile players with good pace. We need more speed in the team. Martial/Shaw both also need a kick up the ass with competition. James can play LW and RW as well https://t.co/EKIMckqyRb

I think sessegnon would be a good signing, would give us another option on the left side would keep Shaw and martial on their toes, wether theirs any truth in it is another matter.MUFC??⚪️⚫️

If #mufc have the chance to sign Ryan Sessegnon over the likes of Daniel James, they should take that every day of the week and twice on sundays.
Versatile workhorse with an unlimited upside. Adds competition to Martial AND potential Shaw. pic.twitter.com/NSaC5E9vgo
