Manchester United have a rich history of developing young players. Usually the Red Devils have players who come up through their academy, but they should look to invest in young talent from the Championship and the lower leagues.

The Football League has been home to some of the EPL stars of today, such as Dele Alli, who has gone on to perform wonderfully in the top flight. Here are three they could sign from the second tier.

#3 Ryan Sessegnon (Fulham)

The 17 year-old is one of the brightest young talents in the country. He has established himself in Fulham's starting eleven since he made his Championship debut in August 2017.

He can play as either a left-back or left-winger and has chipped in 14 goals so far this season, building on the 7 he got in the last campaign. He is on the radar of many big clubs in England, and Manchester United should act fast to lure him to Old Trafford.

He is quick, sharp and has a wand-like left foot. There has been reports that Fulham value him at around £50 million, according to the Express. There is no doubt that Sessegnon has a huge future ahead of him and is a future England international.

Manchester United need to make a good long-term investment and Sessegnon would be a big signing for them. They do currently have Matteo Darmian and Ashley Young as options for left-back. However, these are not long-term options.

You could argue Luke Shaw is their future left-back but he is injury prone and this has halted his development as a player. Sessegnon would break into the first-team at United and does have the quality to play for their starting eleven immediately.
