Man United line up £40m replacement for outcast Luke Shaw – report
Manchester United are looking to wrap up a £40m deal for Fulham full-back Ryan Sessegnon, according to a report in England
Manchester United are preparing a £40m offer to sign Fulham defender Ryan Sessegnon to replace Luke Shaw, according to a report in England.
The Daily Mirror is reporting that the Red Devils are planning to raid the Championship club for their England Under-21 international at the end of the 2017-18 season.
The same article states that Manchester United have sent scouts to watch the Fulham full-back in his last three outings for the Cottagers.
However, the Red Devils should face competition from some of their Premier League title rivals with Sessegnon previously linked with Arsenal, Liverpool FC and Tottenham Hotspur.
According to the same story, Jose Mourinho has been impressed with the Fulham starlet as the Portuguese head coach continues his criticism of Manchester United left-back Shaw.
The England international has been out of favour under Mourinho since his appointment as Louis van Gaal’s successor in May 2016.
Shaw was hauled off at half-time of Manchester United’s 2-0 win over Brighton and Hove Albion in the FA Cup quarter-final at Old Trafford last weekend.
The 22-year-old was once considered one of the most exciting English prospects in the Premier League when he broke in the Southampton time.
Shaw has made 62 appearances in all competitions during three seasons at Old Trafford.
