Manchester United have work cut out to convince youngster to join club

Ryan Sessegnon is getting a lot of attention since last season with Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur now keen to take him away from Fulham on a permanent basis.

The Sun are stating that, as rehashed by the Times, that Spurs are the 17-year-old’s first choice due to wanting to remain in London.

It is also being noted by the same media outlets that United are doing their utmost to persuade the youngster to move up north to Manchester.

Sessegnon is attracting interest from a number of top clubs after the season he’s had, and it wouldn’t surprise us one bit if all these clubs have to battle it out until the end to be the first to secure his signature.

After scoring 15 and assisting six in 44 league appearances this term, Sessgnon became the first Championship player to be nominated for the PFA Young Player of the Year award this season. A phenomenal achievement.

He is renowned for blistering pace and an eye for goal, as well as being versatile enough to play at full-back and on the wing. Funnily enough, that may remind United fans of Antonio Valencia or Ashley Young with both playing defensive positions despite not being recognised full-backs, but I can assure you Sessegnon initially made his name as a defender, albeit an attack-minded one.

United seemingly have their work cut out for them if they’re to convince the youngster to move up north.
