Manchester United monitoring Fulham's Ryan Sessegnon

Is Zlatan Ibrahimovic going to rejoin Manchester United? It's looking increasingly likely

The update comes from Sky Sports, with suggestions that United boss Jose Mourinho is a "keen admirer" of Sessegnon and will offer "certain competition" to Tottenham if the 17-year-old is to become available at any point on the immediate horizon.

According to a report from Sky Sports News this afternoon, Premier League giants Manchester United are the latest club to express an interest in Fulham youngster Ryan Sessegnon. That blend of poise and physicality makes him an exciting talent and why some huge clubs from the Premier League are said to be taking a good look at him.

That could be tempting for the west Londoners as it would mean they'd secure a large fee and get to keep hold of the player for another 12 months but the report suggests that Fulham own Shahid Khan remains adamant Sessegnon won't be sold this summer, even for £25m. However, Fulham are interested in hanging on to the defender unless they receive a transfer bid in the region of £25-£30 million.

United have reportedly made inquiries about a possible move for the player with a view of sending him back on loan with Fulham for the remainder of the season.

Fulham recently rejected an offer from Spurs for Sessegnon, who signed a three-year contract at Craven Cottage this summer.

Sessegnon is only 17 years old but has already established himself as a first-team star at Fulham, making 34 appearances and scoring seven goals.

However, Fulham and their owners have made it clear that they have no intentions of letting Sessegnon leave before the end of the transfer window, and United and Spurs face a hard task on their hands to convince the owners otherwise.
