Manchester United are reportedly eyeing RB Salzburg’s teenage striker Benjamin Sesko in a potential complex deal this summer. The 19-year-old had already secured a £20 million move to RB Leipzig for the 2023/24 season, but could reportedly be available for a higher fee to another interested party. Both Manchester United and Newcastle United have sent scouts to watch Sesko perform and pursue his signature. However, United appear to be ahead in the race to sign him, with sources suggesting they could make a move sooner rather than later. Despite already having a transfer secured, Sesko’s services are highly sought after due to his impressive performances for RB Salzburg, scoring 16 goals and three assists in 37 appearances in all competitions.
In addition to Sesko, Manchester United have been linked with other strikers recently, including Tottenham’s Harry Kane, Napoli’s Victor Osimhen, and Eintracht Frankfurt’s Randal Kolo Muani. As the Red Devils aim to secure Champions League qualification this season, a new star striker may help to spearhead the attack in the future, offering United more buying power and greater attractiveness to top targets. Regardless of their pursuit, United fans will be eagerly anticipating an exciting summer transfer window.
