Sky Sports: Man United showing ‘significant interest’ in signing left-back this summer
Manchester United Football Club are showing a ‘significant interest’ in talented Fulham left-back, Ryan Sessegnon, according to Sky Sports News’ live transfer centre. They say that if United sign the teenager, they could loan him straight back to the London club for the rest of the season.
Apparently, Tottenham Hotspur are also showing an interest in the brilliant 17-year-old, but so far, Fulham have remained strong and have refused any approaches to let the Englishman go.
This is a guy who only broke through into their first-team last season, but since making a mark, he’s been in and around the squad ever since. He’s obviously a talented young man, but it feels like Jose Mourinho probably sees him as one for the future – particularly if he’s willing to loan him straight out.
He’s a player that definitely has a lot of potential, but perhaps the jump up from the Championship to the Premier League is probably too much for him right about now.
The left-back is an area where we’re actually quite deep in. Daley Blind has started the season there, and both Matteo Darmian as well as Luke Shaw are both more than capable of filling in when needed.
