After the exit of Edinson Cavani this summer as a free agent, Manchester United have been looking for a young player who can be the second choice forward behind Cristiano Ronaldo. As the Portuguese star should be on the starting eleven every single week, unless he isn’t fit to play a match. This task is complicated as every player wants to be a regular on the starting eleven.

That is why the plan is to sign a youngster who can gradually become more important on the team sheet, meanwhile he adapts to England, his new teammates and the Premier League. Fabrizio Romano confirmed that one of United’s top targets is Benjamin Šeško, with whom they held more than one meeting for the RB Salzburg striker.

The 19-year-old is being labeled as the new Erling Haaland, not only because they played for the same club, but for physical presence and ability in front of goal. Even though, Salzburg is considered a talent exporting club, they wish to keep the player to continue his development at the Austrian league and the Champions League early stages.

James Ducker, from ‘The Telegraph’ says that although Manchester United were really interested in the Slovenian, they were put off by the £50 million price tag. However, the board is still negotiating for the striker trying to convince the club to lower the price. The young star has shown his quality but he there is no way he is worth that much after scoring 11 goals and gave 7 assist las season.

Other clubs have shown interest too
