Man Utd lead Europe’s top clubs in race for teenage Salzburg striker


Manchester United are currently leading a host of European sides in the race to sign Salzburg’s teenage striker Benjamin Sesko.

Betfair have put odds of 5/4 on the striker moving from Austria to Old Trafford, with Real Madrid currently second at 4/1.

Erik ten Hag’s Manchester United are the bookmakers’ favorite to sign Benjamin Sesko.

The 19-year-old has received accolades as he helped his club win the last two Austrian Bundesliga titles.

The Slovenia international has 12 goals and 8 assists in 39 appearances for the club, and also holds the record for being Slovenia’s youngest debutant and youngest goalscorer.

Manchester United are seen as the favorites to sign the forward, with the club currently short of forwards.

It still seems like last season’s top scorer, Cristiano Ronaldo, is unhappy with the club and would rather leave to play Champions League football.

Other first-team striker Anthony Martial has had a very promising pre-season but has since picked up an injury which will rule him out for at least Sunday’s first game of the season against Brighton.

Benjamin Sesko: odds for the next club

Betfair Odds

  • Manchester United- 5/4
  • Real Madrid – 4/1
  • Chelsea- 6/1
  • PSG- 8/1
  • Bayern Munich – 10/1
  • Newcastle– 10/1
  • Borussia Dortmund- 16/1

Real Madrid are also in the hunt for a striker, following the departures of Luka Jovic and Borja Mayoral this summer, leaving just Mariano Diaz to play second fiddle to aging Karim Benzema for Los Blancos.

It’s well documented that the European champions were aiming to sign Kylian Mbappe from PSG but after the Frenchman opted to sign a new contract in Paris, they were unable to find a replacement striker.

Chelsea are also in the hunt to sign the Slovenian teenager, with Betfair rating the move at 6/1.

The Blues haven’t been successful with the strikers they’ve signed in recent seasons, neither Timo Werner nor Romelu Lukaku have lived up to their sky-high prices.

Boss Thomas Tuchel resorted to deploying attacking midfielder Kai Havertz as a striker due to his lack of capable options.

PSG are also keeping tabs on Sesko’s current situation and have been given odds of 8/1 to make a move, with Bayern Munich and Newcastle both tied at 10/1.

Borussia Dortmund have been rated 16/1 to sign the striker from Leipzig, a move that would replicate Erling Haaland’s transfer between the sides.
