Ryan Sessegnon, right, to replace Marcelo at Real Madrid?
Thursday, December 28, 2017
Real Madrid are readying a shock move for Fulham teen sensation Ryan Sessegnon, who is also attracting interest from Manchester United and Tottenham.
The 17-year-old has been an ever-present member of the Fulham first team squad this season and he has a growing list of admirers.
Spurs came close to landing the winger in the summer before Sessegnon agreed a new contract to end immediate speculation about his future at the Championship side.
However, with the January window just around the corner, rumours have begun to surface again and, according to Spanish publication AS, Real Madrid are lining up a surprise move for Fulham's wonderkid.
Head coach Zinedine Zidane, whose future at Real appears to be under threat after a disappointing season, is said to be looking for a long-term successor to 29-year-old full-back Marcelo.
And it would appear that Sessegnon has emerged as a strong contender to join La Liga's giants, with Real scouts impressed with his recent performances.
United and Spurs are expected to rekindle their interest next month and with Real now also entering the chase, Fulham will do well to hold on to their star asset until the end of the season.
