Manchester United are reportedly keen on signing the talented young RB Salzburg attacker Benjamin Sesko.

The 19-year-old is highly rated across Europe and has a massive future ahead of him. It will be interesting to see if the Red Devils can secure his services before the transfer window closes.

Sesko is a crucial first-team member at RB Salzburg, and it seems highly unlikely that the Austrian club will look to sanction his departure this summer.

Sky Sports are reporting that Manchester United have not agreed to meet the Austrian club’s valuation of the player so far, but talks will continue between the two parties.

At the very least, it is fair to assume that any move for the young forward will have to wait until the end of the season.

The youngster recently showcased his tremendous potential in a pre-season game against Liverpool, and there is no doubt that he has the quality to reach the very top with proper coaching and experience.

It is no secret that Manchester United will have to improve their attacking options, especially with Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial struggling to hit top form over the past year.

Furthermore, star forward Cristiano Ronaldo is keen on leaving the club before the window closes, and manager Erik Ten Hag will have to start planning for alternatives soon.

The opportunity to join the Premier League giants could be a tempting proposition for the youngster, but he needs to choose his destination carefully.

He needs regular first-team football to continue his development. If Manchester United cannot provide him guaranteed first-team minutes, he is better off staying with the Austrian club for now.

Salzburg have produced talented strikers like Erling Haaland in recent seasons, and Sesko hopes to follow in the Norwegian’s footsteps.
