MANCHESTER UNITED scouts have been impressed by RB Salzburg striker Benjamin Sesko, according to reports.
The Red Devils considered a move for the 6ft 5in forward as Cristiano Ronaldo pushed for a summer exit.
United ended up keeping the Portuguese star, with Sesko committing to sign for RB Leipzig.
The Bundesliga side have agreed to pay £21.6million for the Slovenian teenager at the end of the season.
But this has not deterred United from making a move.
According to 90min, the Red Devils are still interested in the 19-year-old ace – despite the fact RB Leipzig would demand a serious profit to sell him.

Erik ten Hag's side aren't the only side interested, with Chelsea and Bayern Munich also keen.
The Red Devils could have a vacancy up front, with Ronaldo rumoured to be chasing a January exit after starting only one Prem game so far this season.
Chelsea, meanwhile, could look for a long-term solution in the striker position after signing 33-year-old Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as a stop-gap option.
While Bayern would still like to sign a long-term replacement for Robert Lewandowski, although Harry Kane is their dream target.
