Benjamin Sesko transfer news – latest odds: Man Utd lead Real Madrid and Chelsea in pursuit of £45m Salzburg striker | The Sun

MANCHESTER UNITED are leading the race to sign RB Salzburg forward Benjamin Sesko.

Betfair have United at 5/4 to secure the 19-year-old's signature in this window.

Betfair: Bet £10 get £30*

Sesko bagged 11 goals and seven assists in his 37 appearances in all competitions for Salzburg last season.

He's started the new campaign well too, with two goals and an assist in the first three games of this season.

The 6ft 4in striker has been linked with a move to several big European clubs, given his age and profile.

Real Madrid were the latest to be linked with a move for him in recent reports.

But it appears United have the upper hand according to the betting.

Cristiano Ronaldo appears set to stay at the club despite his best efforts to force through a move away.

Edinson Cavani left Old Trafford on a free too, with Anthony Martial leading the line for much of pre-season.

Reports elsewhere said United refused to sign the Slovenian starlet back in 2019 where he would have cost in the region of £2.5million.

Instead, it's thought a figure close to £45million is required this time around for the kid labelled 'the new Erling Haaland'.

United lead the betting with Betfair at 5/4, with Madrid just behind at 4/1.

Real have had a quiet window by their standards, with Carlo Ancelotti seemingly pleased with the squad which landed the league and Champions League double last term.

  • Man Utd 5/4
  • Real Madrid 4/1
  • Chelsea 6/1
  • PSG 8/1
  • Bayern 10/1
  • Newcastle 10/1
  • Dortmund 16/1

Chelsea have their own striker crisis at the minute and can be backed at 6/1 to nip ahead of the other pair and snatch Sesko.

Romelu Lukaku has already left this summer and it's looking like Timo Werner could do the same shortly.

With Kai Havertz then left as the only option in attack – and the new finance behind Chelsea – they could look at making a play for the prospect.

PSG come in at 8/1, Bayern Munich and big-spending Newcastle at 10/1, with Borussia Dortmund at 16/1.
