Manchester United are trying to expand their attacking depth for the upcoming season. United have shown interests in signing RB Salzburg attacker Benjamin Sesko. Sesko has been making headlines recently with several clubs lining up. Manchester United have inquired about Sesko’ s availability with RB Salzburg as they admire the player.

Sesko has scored 13 times in 40 games for Salzburg so far. He scored 11 of those goals in the last season with an extra seven assists. The 19 year old has already started the season with a bang as he has score twice and assisted once in two appearances for the Austrian team.

Manchester United will look to sign Sesko in the coming days. However they will be circling another attacker if Cristiano Ronaldo leaves the club. Sesko is a physical threat as he stands tall at 6f 4in and has received comparisons with the likes of Erling Haaland. Sesko spoke about his comparison with Haaland recently.

“Such comparisons motivate me and give me energy. They do not represent pressure. I will listen and learn so I can be even better than he is. My teammates at the club tell me that Haaland and I are very similar, especially in terms of speed. Most of them even tell me that I’m better than him!”

Several clubs interested with United in Sesko

Sesko’s agent  Elvis Basanovic spoke about how top clubs were circling around the youngster in 2019.

“We had a lot of offers from really big clubs. Had we decided on the money, Benjamin would have moved to England or Italy. Salzburg has given Benjamin a path. Here, he can develop. The people in charge really wanted him, which was important to us. Here he also has a greater chance of playing for the first team sooner or later.

Benjamin is one of the greatest talents of his age group in Europe. He has an incredible body, is tall, fast, has great jumping ability, is technically gifted and his greatest strength is his finishing.”
