Man United targeting £50m-rated English wing-back

Ryan Sessegnon wants to play under Mauricio Pochettino at Tottenham despite Manchester United entering the running to sign the Fulham ace, who is set to leave the London club this summer after their relegation from the top flight

A host of top clubs are chasing the 18-year-old and Spurs have retained an interest in the youngster since he broke into the Fulham team as a 16-year-old and the Cottagers are set to sell their prized asset.

Ryan Sessegnon’s deal expires next season, and the Telegraph claim Tottenham will face competition from Manchester United, as well as Paris Saint-Germain and Red Bull Leipzig.

The player though wants to be mentored by Mauricio Pochettino, and his first choice club is Tottenham, as Spurs have an excellent history of nurturing young talent.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is in charge at Manchester United, and although he is set to build a young British side, Fulham will demand up to £50 million for Ryan Sessegnon.

Despite the Englishman’s preference, a bidding war could erupt for the defender, which may mean he would go to the highest bidder.

Ryan Sessegnon can play either side of defence or attack, having regularly been used as a left-sided midfielder and a right winger this term.

Fulham were beaten 4-0 by Newcastle on the final day of their Premier League campaign and must now restructure their team ahead of a return to the second tier.

Ryan Sessegnon provided six assists, netting twice, in 38 matches for Fulham this term and has already played 120 times for the club despite his age.
