Football: Back in top 4 and it 'feels great'

Manchester United are ready to pay a £50m transfer fee to sign Ryan Sessegnon from Fulham this summer, according to reports in the British media. But we put in a good performance as a team.

The England U21 global has just 18 months left on his contract and is showing no sign of penning an extension, and the Express claim Man Utd are ready to test Fulham's resolve with a big offer at the end of the season. United were 11 points behind the Blues when Mourinho was let go, but are back in contention with a rare run of form - the streak of six consecutive away wins in all competitions is a first for the club since May 2009.

United are now back among the top four, sitting a point ahead of Chelsea before Maurizio Sarri's men take on Manchester City on Sunday. Sessegnon was the breakout star in Championship the previous season and even won a few individual awards, including a nomination for the PFA Young Player of the Year. Today, Man Utd are linked with Ryan Sessegnon... Sessegnon's season though, has been a struggle, individually and team-wise, with Fulham 19th on the Premier League table.

Man Utd have three huge fixtures coming up with a game against PSG in the Champions League, as well as two massive Premier League games against Chelsea and Liverpool which will be the biggest test of Solskjaer's tenure so far.

Not loving the football and the bench life at Fulham.

Sessegnon, 18, had a fantastic season in the Championship last season, scoring 16 goals and setting up another 8, in an effort to help Fulham gain promotion to the Premier League.

And the versatile left-winger's future is up in the air as we edge nearer to the summer transfer window.

And the Red Devils have hope of snatching the teenage talent from the Cottagers with his contract talks stalling. While Sessegnon has evolved into a left winger, he has been played all across the left side, with left-back his natural position.

Should Fulham get relegated, it will tough for the side to retain Sessegnon.

But it was the 2017-18 campaign in which he came to worldwide attention, with his 15 Championship strikes instrumental in helping Fulham gain promotion to the Premier League via the play-offs. There will be other suitors, though.
