Manchester United are lining up an offer worth £25m to sign Ryan Sessegnon from Fulham in January, according to reports.
Sessegnon signed a professional contract with the West London side last summer and has emerged as one of the brightest young English talents in the game over the last year, netting a hat-trick against Sheffield United last month.
And according to the Guardian‘s Ed Aarons, Man United are launching a fresh approach to sign the teenager in January and would let Luke Shaw leave in order to make way for the deal.
Supporters wouldn’t want to see the latter – who has shown signs of a resurgence in recent weeks – depart the club unless a player with superior pedigree comes in alongside Sessegnon, with Juventus left-back Alex Sandro emerging as the most likely candidate at this moment in time.
United have turned up the heat on their pursuit of a player whose rise to prominence at such a young age has attracted both Tottenham Hotspur and Real Madrid, and he could may well serve as a long-term solution to a left-back problem that has dragged on for some time now.
