The 18-year-old’s contract expires at the end of next season and the Craven Cottage outfit risk losing him for free if they do not sell him this summer.

Sessegnon is expected to leave Fulham this summer following their relegation back to the Championship and the BBC claimed earlier this week that Spurs were set to rekindle their interest with the player keen on a move to North London.

Sky Sports are today reporting that Manchester United have made contact with Fulham and are the first club to do so, with Spurs and Juventus both remaining interested.

Sessegnon was named Championship player of the year in 2017/18 and struggled to make an impact during the first half of his debut Premier League season but did seem more settled under new boss Scott Parker.
