Man Utd keen to land £50 million Ryan Sessegnon from Fulham

Football: Back in top 4 and it 'feels great'

"I've got a bit of a view on how the team will look against Chelsea, Liverpool, PSG but the closer you get to the Fulham game the more focused you are on just that one".

According to an exclusive report from Express, Ryan Sessegnon might not be a Fulham player for too long. "In transition, that is not possible against teams like Manchester United".

The England U21 worldwide has just 18 months left on his contract and is showing no sign of penning an extension, and the Express claim Man Utd are ready to test Fulham's resolve with a big offer at the end of the season. The potential rift has been noted by Manchester United, who are looking to take advantage of it in the summer, with Fulham, who are seven points away from safety, one of the mild favourites to get relegated.

Sessegnon has played regularly in both left-back and left-midfield since his breakthrough nearly three years ago, and a move to Manchester United and Tottenham was hinted at when the Fulham man revealed his footballing idols. Sessegnon's season though, has been a struggle, individually and team-wise, with Fulham 19th on the Premier League table.

Solskjaer said that while there was a chance his tinkering could have backfired, his footballing philosophy was "if you don't risk, you don't win".

And the Red Devils have hope of snatching the teenage talent from the Cottagers with his contract talks stalling.

Manchester United though, could come swooping in when the summer transfer window opens.

The youngster made his Fulham debut as a 16-year-old in 2016 and went on to make 30 appearances in his debut season before setting the league alight the following year.

The Sunday Express add Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side are ready to pay £50m for Sessegnon, who can play anywhere down the left side of the field.

The 18-year-old versatile player does not want to sign a new deal before getting enough clarity of what's going to happen with Fulham and considering the side seems ticketed to lose their top-flight status just one year after promotion, it makes sense for Sessegnon to try and find options elsewhere. There will be other suitors, though.
