Red Bull Salzburg and Manchester United are said to have spoken about a potential trade for Benjamin Sesko during the summer transfer window.



Recent months have seen a lot of speculation about the 19-year-old's future, with several teams reportedly eager to sign him in the current market.

Sesko has had a strong start to the 2022–23 season for his Austrian club, recording two goals and one assist in three appearances across all competitions.

In the meantime, he has now contributed to 13 goals and 8 assists in 41 games for Salzburg, having a breakout season in 2021–2022.

According to a recent report, Manchester United football director John Murtough had a meeting last week with the teen's agent to discuss a potential transfer to Old Trafford this summer.

The 20-time English champions and the Red Bulls have now had preliminary discussions regarding a potential transfer during the current transfer window, according to Sky Sports News.

However, the report claims that there is a huge gap in the valuation of the player by the two clubs, with Salzburg not under any pressure to sell the in-demand youngster.

Manchester United are allegedly currently deciding whether to make an official offer for the striker, as they run the risk of losing him to another club if they do not make a move before the end of the market.

Salzburg have Sesko on a contract until June 2026, and it is believed that the Austrian champions will not consider a sale unless they receive a substantial offer.

Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano has claimed that Chelsea also met with the forward’s agent last week, while another club are in the race alongside the Blues and Manchester United.

Romano, on his official Twitter account, has said that Salzburg want to keep the teenager for another season, but it will be up to the player to decide his future.

Sesko, who has won two Austrian Bundesliga titles and one Austrian Cup, has also found the back of the net twice in 13 caps for Slovakia, last netting against Serbia in the UEFA Nations League in June.

The forward’s agent, Elvis Basanovic, told SPOX in 2019 that a number of “really big clubs” wanted to sign his client, but Salzburg paid in the region of £2.2m to acquire him from Donzale.

“We had a lot of offers from really big clubs,” Basanovic said. “Had we decided on the money, Benjamin would have moved to England or Italy. But we decided to look at the bigger picture and the Salzburg project. The biggest clubs in Europe tried to get him. The interest in him was huge; I have never seen anything like it before.”

Man U are said to be planning to bring at least one attacker to the club before the end of the transfer window regardless of whether Cristiano Ronaldo stays beyond the deadline.
