Ten Hag’s top priority will be to find a replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo, whose reputation and performance at United are both going down.
The Portuguese star has also looked frustrated. At first, he had trouble getting into the starting lineup, and then he couldn’t score goals. There have been many times when Ronaldo and the Dutchman have been at odds.
Benjamin Sesko has been named as a player who could help the United attack, which has been struggling.
The Slovenian forward is 19 years old, which is almost half of Ronaldo’s age.
Sesko, who is still young, is getting better at top-flight football. On the other hand, it could be said that the Portuguese legend is on the way down.
Romano is not sure that the rumor mill is telling the truth about what is going on.
Sesko signed with RB Leipzig last summer, but the deal won’t be finalized until 2023. Because of this, he thinks the attacker will go to the German team.
Romano said, “Manchester United has been watching him for a long time. This isn’t new; both United and Chelsea were interested in him last summer, but he’s going to Leipzig,” in his exclusive CaughtOffside column.
Recent reports said that the striker could leave Leipzig without even kicking a ball.
More likely to happen
The Italian said that United also has a stake in getting Cody Gakpo to sign with them.
The winger recently became only the third player in Eredivisie history to win Player of the Month for two months in a row.
Romano said that United was very interested in Gakpo, who he called “one of Europe’s best talents,” before they made Antony their top priority.
The red side of Manchester still has a lot of faith in the star, who will be worth close to €50m. Given how well the Dutch winger has played and how much he has grown, the asking price could be a good deal.
Very talented player for
