Man Utd plotting £50million transfer move for Fulham starlet Sessegnon (Express)

Manchester United are weighing up a £50million summer bid for Fulham youngster Ryan Sessegnon, according to reports.

England Under-21 international Sessegnon excelled as the London club won promotion to the Premier League last season.

Fulham have struggled in the top flight though and the left-sided star has seen his playing time diminish since Claudio Ranieri was appointed manager.

Sessegnon, 18, has made 23 Premier League appearances this term but last started a game on January 12, when he was substituted at half-time during Fulham's 2-1 defeat at Burnley .

He has 18 months left to run on his current contract and according to the Express , Sessegnon is stalling on signing a new one at Craven Cottage.

Sessegnon is said to be ready to leave Fulham should they lose their battle with relegation, with the club seven points from safety following Saturday's 3-0 home defeat to United.

And United could use the stunted progress of the 18-year-old under Ranieri to help convince him to move north at the end of the season.

Sessegnon made his debut for Fulham at just 16 and he has been tipped to force his way into the senior England squad before long.
