Man United Tracking £60M RB Leipzig striker ‘Better than Haaland’ Ever Since He Was a ‘Youngster’ as Erik Ten Hag backs him to shine at Old Trafford

Manchester United are in the race to sign Benjamin Sesko, who has been the subject of interest from Arsenal and Chelsea.

Manchester United are keen on signing Benjamin Sesko this summer, despite Arsenal and Chelsea’s well-documented interest.

Sesko has a release clause of £55.3 million, making him an affordable target.

Man United are also looking to strengthen in defence and midfield, with the likes of Jarrad Branthwaite and Douglas Luiz linked with the club.

Manchester United are prepared to fight to sign RB Leipzig striker Benjamin Sesko, who has been linked heavily with moves to Arsenal and Chelsea, according to The Athletic.

Sesko netted 14 Bundesliga goals last season, ending the campaign with seven goals in seven consecutive games.

This impressive finish has prompted interest from a host of clubs, with Arsenal supposedly having been told by his representatives that the player is keen on a switch to north London.

However, Ben Jacobs revealed to GIVEMESPORT that Sesko is also open to considering an offer from Chelsea, if one is to be made.

Now, The Athletic are reporting that this saga could become a three-way tussle, with the Slovenian remaining of interest to United.

The Red Devils are supposedly in the market for a striker, and have been scouting Sesko for some time now.

RB Leipzig’s Benjamin Sesko
Despite the intense speculation around Arsenal and Chelsea’s interest, United have not been put off the scent for Sesko.

The northwest club will believe they have a chance of signing the 21-year-old, and with The Athletic suggesting that he has been ‘watched closely by United since he was a youngster’, it’s possible that the club have already done some groundwork with regards to having contact with his representatives.

The sports publication have also reported that Sesko has a release clause believed to be in the region of £55.3 million. Ultimately, this sum will be seen as moderate for one of Europe’s most sought-after talents, and if all three clubs are willing to activate it, the outcome of this saga will depend on their respective sales pitches.

United’s stature and prestige may put them in good stead to land the player, but they won’t be able to offer the allure of Champions League football that Arsenal can.

However, with Rasmus Hojlund producing a hit-and-miss first season at Old Trafford, INEOS may be able to offer the striker guaranteed minutes as soon as he arrives at the club, while Arsenal and Chelsea may sell the idea of him playing a gradual developmental role, given the respective array of forward options both the London sides boast.
