Old Trafford

Manchester United need a young striker to replace Cristiano Ronaldo and the latest name in the limelight is that of Benjamin Sesko.

According to The Mail, Man Utd lead to secure signing of the Slovenian forward and have held talks with his representatives.

Transfer: Man United have submitted £50.3million+ offer for Liverpool target – Report

The famous British news source have mentioned that RB Salzburg would not sell their prized asset in the current transfer window unless they receive a mammoth offer of over £55million.

In the last campaign, Sesko scored 10 goals and provided 7 assists in all competitions for the Austrian club. This season, thus far, the 19-year-old has netted 2 goals in as many appearances (1 assist).

In recent years, Salzburg have developed top young strikers. The likes of Haaland and Daka used to score for fun and are now in the Premier League with Man City and Leicester respectively.

Will Sesko end up moving to Old Trafford? We shall see.

The teenage sensation was awe-inspiring in the friendly contest against Liverpool. He scored the winning goal of the game vs Jurgen Klopp’s men.

Man Utd have already lost Cavani on a Bosman, and Ronaldo’s future has been up in the air for quite some time.

Ten Hag needs a young striker who can serve the club in the long run. It must be remembered that since the retirement of Alex Ferguson, not even a single Man Utd player has managed to score more than 20 goals in a Premier League campaign.

In your view, should Man United splash over £55million to sign Benjamin Sesko?
