Another player we've been linked with heavily. Rumours of Man United looking at him now and even Real Madrid being mentioned.

I read yesterday that Southampton were also about to join the party. Figure banded around yesterday was circa £30 million for Ryan alone.

Of course, Southampton have been praised for their youth set up and the players it has produced, no denying, but it might just be lazy journalism. They have VVD money to spend, good with youth.

As for UTD, I'd be very surprised, whilst Rashford at a young age is getting his chances under Mourinho, he's not really a manager known for working with youth, more interested in the here and now finished article.

Add to this that I believe it was said that he didn't want to move too far from family at this early stage of his career.

Bias aside, I just don't see a move to UTD at this point of his career good for Ryan.

On a closing note, I think the supposed fact that we are also interested in his brother Steven could well be the deal clincher. New team, new surroundings, nice to have that added support of a sibling at that age.

The London location must help us. Close to family and friends, working under the worlds best youth development coach. The boy would be mad not to come.

Would really like to sign him as such a talent.

I’m not sure if he’d be a wing back or perhaps play further up where he has been very successful for Fulham but wherever he plays he’s gonna be good.

I've only seen him once and he lost in a training drill to Jimmy Bullard. That said, he's very highly thought of so I'll write it off as a bad day. If Poch wants him, get him. Simple as that.

If he goes to Manu it will be for all the wrong reasons.

Dele Alli v Shaw...the examples he should look at.
It sounds like he has some good advisers around him, his dad etc going by the ITK. Here's hoping anyway.

A young English core at spurs must also be an influence, not to mention new stadium and Kane, young players should look at Kane and think I could learn a hell of a lot from him.

This seems to have been going on years, yet he is still so young.

Definitely been well advised so far and I hope this continues to be the case.

Would love him at Spurs but think wherever he goes he should be loaned back to Fulham for rest of season.

Surely there is no sense to Fulham selling him now? His price will just rise and rise over the next few seasons. Can’t see him banging down the door to leave as he just signed his first contract with them and his brother signed his first pro contract with them this week

I think the idea behind his deal was specifically to make sure Fulham got a really big amount of money for him. From what I recall, 50 million was being bandied around over the summer.

I haven't seen Fulham play this season. Has he been playing well? I do check on their results occasionally in case he gets mentioned but it seems to have been a bit quiet - or I haven't seen when he's played well!

The context of when he signed his first xontract should be remembered though, I think when he signed his first contract he understood that Fulham wouldn't prevent him from leaving long term, he could have left without signing it but didn't want Fulham to get next to nothing, that being the case I'd like to think they wouldn't force him to go to the highest bidder or price him out of a move to his preferred choice of club, I'd also like to think that is us.

I imagine that the quoted price is £30m in the same way that the original Bale fee was to be £10m, i.e. an awful lot of add-ons and clauses.

This is his strengths / weaknesses according to whoscored (which is pretty good generally). The weaknesses look a bit concerning for someone who we're talking about using as a full back. Is it actually bad at these thing?

I read on coys that he wants to stay in London as all his family are in Wandsworth. No chance it will be as much as £30 million either.
