Man Utd news: Jose Mourinho could be thwarted for major summer deal | Football | Sport

Sessegnon has no shortage of admirers, with Tottenham and also keeping tabs on the player who could fetch around £50million in the summer transfer window.

Jose Mourinho currently harbours ambitions to bring Sessegnon to Old Trafford as he seeks to strengthen the left side of his defence.

With Luke Shaw expected to leave, the Portuguese tactician is lining up other options if he can’t strike a deal for Spurs left-back Danny Rose.

Reports have suggested that Sessegnon could snub a move to the Red Devils as he would prefer to stay in London.

But according to the Daily Mirror, PSG are providing stiff competition for the 17-year-old.

The Mirror claim he has been identified as the perfect defensive addition and they will push hard to take him from Fulham.

Sessegnon’s future could hinge on whether his side gain promotion to the Premier League.

After finishing in third spot in the Championship, the Cottagers have the play-offs to contend with and they face Derby in the first leg of their semi-final clash on Friday (7.45pm).

When quizzed over his future in March, Sessegnon said: “For someone to have faith in you at the tender age of 16 is massive.

“This season he has had total confidence in me and I just want to repay him with my performances.

“I’m really focused on Fulham at the moment. I want to get us into the Premier League.

“I just want to keep improving.”
