Manchester United Lining Up A £50m Move For This English Winger: The Right Choice For The Red Devils?

According to a recent report by the Sunday Express, Manchester United are prepared to cough up £50m to secure the services of Fulham speedster Ryan Sessegnon in the summer. The same source has also revealed that the Cottagers talent is stalling on a new deal which could pave the way for a high-profile switch to Old Trafford at the end of this season.

Sessegnon has seen first-team opportunities hard to come by under Claudio Ranieri in recent weeks. Ever since the former Leicester City manager’s arrival at the King Power Stadium, the English winger has often been overlooked for other talents such as Joe Bryan, Luciano Vietto and Ryan Babel.

The 18-year-old wide man has featured in 26 matches for the London outfit this term, scoring two goals while creating 5 assists across all competitions. The England Under-21 international came through the youth ranks of Fulham before breaking into their first-back back in 2016.

At the age of 17, he was an integral part of Slaviša Jokanović’s promotion winning Fulham side last season, so it is no wonder that other top clubs are recognizing his incredible contributions.

The Cottagers teenager is incredibly pacey and can dribble with the ball quite efficiently down the left touchline. He possesses a blistering turn of speed which helps him get past his marker in the attacking end of the pitch.

The potential acquisition of Sessegnon will undoubtedly inject a lot of quality to the Red Devils’ squad. However, the jury is still out on whether he can be a regular starter at Old Trafford. Ole Gunnar Solskjær has currently got a whole of talented wingers in his team such as Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford, Alexis Sanchez, Juan Mata and Jesse Lingard who are all vying for a starting berth in his first-team.

Hence, it seems like Sessegnon won’t be guaranteed regular game time at the Theatre of Dreams so it might not be a wise move for him to join the Red Devils next summer. However, for Man United, it is a no-brainer to recruit a player of Sessegnon’s potential as he will be a great asset for them in the long-run.
