City to rival United in race to sign 17-year-old wonderkid

Manchester City are set to join the race to sign Fulham left-back Ryan Sessegnon according to reports this morning.

The defender, who has been playing as a winger in recent weeks, has been in simply sensational form of late, scoring nine goals in his last 10 games for the club.

The 17-year-old is one of the most exciting prospects in English football, and has attracted the attentions of both Tottenham and Manchester United in recent months.

However, according to the Sunday Mirror, Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola is considering rivalling that interest and could make a move in the summer.

It isn’t just the Premier League’s biggest clubs that are interested too, as the report credits European giants Bayern Munich and Real Madrid with having an interest in Fulham’s teenage sensation.

Despite all of the interest in his services, his signature won’t come cheap, and it has previously been claimed that Fulham could demand upwards of £50 million for their talented youngster.
