Man United’s move for Benjamin Sesko will have to happen quickly, with the transfer now approaching the ‘key days’.
Erik ten Hag and Manchester United were delivered a real spanner in the works with Cristiano Ronaldo a week or so ago.
The Portugal international made his intentions clear. He wants to leave the club this summer.
It goes without saying, if the Portugal star gets his wish, those minutes will have to be replaced ahead of the new season starting this weekend. Finding someone who can score those 20+ goals a season that Ronaldo practically guarantees is never going to be easy.
Benjamin Sesko’s name is one that we’ve become increasingly familiar with over the last fortnight. The young Slovenian currently plies his trade for RB Salzburg over in Austria.
Now, Fabrizio Romano has given us another update on Sesko’s future – and it’s a pretty important one. Apparently, United’s move for the signing is entering the ‘key days’, with contacts currently ongoing.
United know they ‘have to be fast’ on this deal following a meeting with the player’s agent some ‘days ago’. On top of that, there are also two more clubs in the hunt to sign Sesko this summer.
To round it off, it’s claimed that the player will ‘make a decision soon’ with his agent and family.
At first, it felt like United didn’t really have a shot at signing Sesko, but as time goes on, I feel like he’s becoming a more obtainable target.
The 19-year-old looked absolutely outstanding against Liverpool on pre-season tour. He played with a maturity beyond his years and Sesko absolutely looks like someone who could lead the line for a top club for the next decade.
Sure, he’s still some way away from the finished product, but imagine Sesko sitting in behind someone like Ronaldo for a year and learning from the best to ever do it?
If there’s any way United can push ahead and get this signing done this summer, they absolutely should. He feels perfect for the Ten Hag system and the longevity Sesko could potentially offer is a real selling point.
