"He is a lad", said Ranieri, who at Chelsea oversaw John Terry's development into a first-team player.

Manchester United want to capitalize on the situation and Express report that they are ready to spend up to £50 million to tempt him away from the embattled club.

Manchester United triggered a one year extension in De Gea's contract in November 2018, keeping him tied till 2020.

The England Under-21 global has 18 months left on his current deal with the Cottagers and that could mean that his transfer fee could be reduced this summer.

Well, it looks like Mourinho's successor has put United back into the top-four picture.

His efforts didn't go unnoticed, going on to be voted for by managers and players to win the Championship Player of the Season - all before turning 18.

"It has to. I've always been that way", said Solskjaer on Friday.

Missouri State Beats Illinois State On Wild Half-Court Shot
Missouri State senior Jarred Dixon came up with the ball and launched it from half-court, banking it in for the miracle win. Up two with 7.8 seconds remaining, Illinois State had to inbound the ball under its own basket.

Sessegnon has played regularly in both left-back and left-midfield since his breakthrough nearly three years ago, and a move to Manchester United and Tottenham was hinted at when the Fulham man revealed his footballing idols. With the victory, the Red Devils moved past Chelsea into the Champions league spots.

Not loving the football and the bench life at Fulham.

And the versatile left-winger's future is up in the air as we edge nearer to the summer transfer window. The Red Devils are old admirers of the youngster and could take up the option of launching a bid for the player, should he continue his current contract standoff with Fulham.

The Sunday Express add Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side are ready to pay £50m for Sessegnon, who can play anywhere down the left side of the field.

The 18-year-old has been in good form this season and has scored two goals and made five assists in 23 Premier League games this term.

By the end of that run survival could be beyond Fulham's reach, with the club already seven points adrift of safety, but Ranieri is adamant they have to retain their belief if they are to have any hope of succeeding.

Last month's arrivals of Ryan Babel and Lazar Markovic have provided the 18-year-old with further competition for selection, and the Italian questions whether Sessegnon has the experience and physical maturity to play every week. There will be other suitors, though.
