Manchester United Considering Ryan Sessegnon Move

Football: Back in top 4 and it 'feels great'

Football: Back in top 4 and it 'feels great'

Claudio Ranieri has told his Fulham players their battle against relegation will not be settled against Manchester United and they therefore can not rely on one result lifting their troubled season.

Ryan, and his twin brother Steven, have been Fulham players since 2008 - joining the youth set-up as eight-year-olds.

Craven Cottage, normally such a genteel place to watch a game of football, was an angry place with fans aiming chants of "You don't know what you're doing" at a manager who appears to have run out of ideas after three months in the job.

At 17, Sessegnon went on to score 15 Championship goals, which culminated in Fulham beating Aston Villa 1-0 in the Play Off final at Wembley - where Sessegnon set-up Tom Cairney's winning goal.

While five assists and two goals in his debut season in the Premier League isn't all that bad, his game time has been reduced under new boss Claudio Ranieri, who has openly said the player needs to be "more nasty" in order to get selected, perhaps hinting that he needs to work on the physical side of his game. "It's his first time in the Premier League and sometimes it's not possible to stay every time at the top of your condition".

The Roehampton-born star's impressive performances haven't gone unnoticed, with Fulham reportedly turning down a £25million bid from Tottenham shortly after their promotion was confirmed. Today, Man Utd are linked with Ryan Sessegnon... But, like I said, we have big games coming up.

"At younger ages I was more attacking, and had a striker role through the middle, but as I progressed they pushed me towards left-back".

Solskjær, who was appointed as caretaker manager until the end of the season, has achieved the Special One's miracle in seven weeks. After, if they're better than you, it's a pity, and we restart next season.

Manchester United though, could come swooping in when the summer transfer window opens. David De Gea and his advisors believe De Gea deserves a better contract than the one at the table.

Fulham were the ideal opponents for a team hoping not to expend unnecessary energy before facing Paris Saint-Germain.

Express Sport understands De Gea wants United to hand him a £350,000-a-week deal to convince him to stay put.
