Following the uncertainty of Christiano Ronaldo’s future at the club, Manchester United have quickly set their compass towards RB Salzburg’s Benjamin Šeško as a possible replacement. However, the race for the striker will not be a walk in Easy street as Chelsea are also reportedly in the race for him.
Šeško’s agent had a meeting with the Blues last week who are looking to bolster their attacking options this summer. Although Manchester United have had more than one direct meeting, there is a major highlight on the gap in valuation between the two clubs
The player is expected to make a decision the coming days, but United are still considering whether to pursue a deal or not. Salzburg will be hopeful that Šeško stays at the club this summer because they want to keep him for one more year.
Šeško proves to be in top form as he has already been involved in 3 direct goal involvements in the same number of matches for Salzburg this season. If Manchester United want to sign the Slovenian this summer, they will have to beat Chelsea in providing a more convincing offer for both player and club.
