Manchester United are preparing for a big summer ahead after their sixth-placed finish in the Premier League.
Though they won the Europa League and EFL Cup, the Red Devils are in sore need of reinforcements if they are to topple champions Chelsea.
Not since the days of Sir Alex Ferguson have they mounted a challenge for the country's biggest prize, with David Moyes and Louis van Gaal also failing to meet expectations.
However, despite their struggles, Jose Mourinho is supposedly preparing to battle Tottenham for one of the country's highest-rated wonderkids.

The Mirror claim that United are ready to go all out to sign Sessegnon, who has also been linked with a move to Liverpool.
It is said that Mourinho is an admirer of the England Under-19s international and wants to bring him to Old Trafford.

But United's seeming determination to snap up Sessegnon could hand Shaw a lifeline.
Despite his obvious talents, Sessegnon is unlikely to walk into the team and nail down a spot in Mourinho's starting XI.
The 17-year-old's lack of inexperience could mean that Mourinho opts to give Shaw more opportunities next season, though talk remains rife that they could move for Tottenham's Danny Rose.
