Man United 0-1 Arsenal: £60m star’s agents present at Old Trafford amid transfer links



| Last Updated:


Manchester United lost 1-0 against Arsenal at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon, and one starlet had his agents at the Old Trafford encounter.

The Reds were defeated once again in the Premier League this season as Leandro Trossard’s goal provided the difference between the two sides on the day.

Erik ten Hag’s side produced a better performance than the one which saw them lose 4-0 against Crystal Palace on Monday night, but it was still far from enough to beat a strong Arsenal side.

Sir Jim Ratcliffe was in the stands alongside Sir Dave Brailsford and Jason Wilcox. They will already be thinking ahead to the summer.

Several key positions need strengthening when the transfer window opens, particularly in defence and attack.

Casemiro started alongside Jonny Evans in the centre of United’s defence on Sunday, while Rasmus Højlund will be the only natural no.9 going into next season currently, with Anthony Martial set to leave when his contract expires next month.

In attack, there have not been many names linked with the club to support Højlund going forward. However, one player who has been reported as an opinion is 20-year-old Benjamin Šeško.

According to AcademyScoop, Šeško’s agents were present at Old Trafford during United’s defeat to Arsenal.

It was added that the Slovenian centre-forward is high on United’s list for a new striker to support Højlund this summer.

Sky Germany reporter Philipp Hinze has explained that while the 20-year-old has a release clause in his contract at RB Leipzig, the price is dependent on his success with the Bundesliga outfit.

“Benjamin Sesko’s clause is dependent on success! In the winter, the sum was €50 million,” Hinz wrote on X, formerly known as Twitter.

“Thanks to a strong second half of the season, the clause value is now around €65 million.

“The parameters for the price increase are playing time, goals and assists.

“A possible increase is theoretically still achievable. Then the sum would be €70-75 million. The decision will be made at the end of the season.”
