Manchester United round-up: Championship teen targeted; midfielder close to La Liga move; Arsenal prodigy linked
Manchester United could make a late move for Fulham’s teen sensation Ryan Sessegnon if they are prepared to sell this summer, say Sky Sports. The 17-year-old signed a three year professional contract earlier this summer and the Craven Cottage side have refused to sell, even if a lucrative bid of £25 million is made.
Tottenham are also interested in the teenager, who took the Championship by storm last season. Now established as one of the division’s best left-backs, he could be a long term target for United, who would reportedly be open to loaning him back to Fulham for the season if they sign him this summer.
One player who is set to head out on loan is Andreas Pereira, according to local Spanish source SER Deportivos Valencia. The midfielder spent last season on loan at La Liga side Granada as they were relegated. He came back and impressed in pre-season, but could now join Valencia for the 2017/18 campaign.
The 21-year-old has made 13 first team appearances for Manchester United but looks unlikely to be heavily involved under Jose Mourinho this season. With that in mind, it could be a smart move to loan him to a club where he can get regular football at a high level as Valencia will be playing at in Spain.
Another youngster could join the Manchester United ranks as the Independent say that the Red Devils are tracking Arsenal teenager Marcus McGuane. The 18-year-old midfielder has just one year left on his contract at the Emirates and is attracting interest from Juventus and United among others.
Having captained England under 18s, McGuane has become a key figure for Arsenal’s under 23s, racking up 19 appearances for them to date in holding midfield. He is yet to make his first team debut and United could look to ensure that his first Premier League appearance comes for them instead.
