Red Bull Salzburg striker Benjamin Ceska has made a decision on his future amid interest from the side Chelsea and Manchester Unitedaccording to reports.

Salzburg are demanding more than £50m for the 19-year-old Slovenia international, who United could sign in 2019 for just £2.5m.

Cesko’s representatives have met with both clubs – who will face further competition from Newcastle – and all three Premier League sides are interested in signing him.

Sky Sport Austriahowever, it is now being reported that Cesc has decided to stay at Salzburg for the 2022-2023 season, despite interest from Chelsea, United and Newcastle.

“Benjamin Seško wants to stay in Salzburg for another year so he can make the leap like Erling Haaland,” Sky Sport Austria reporter Marko Stankovic said.

— This is Ceska’s plan. Next year we will talk about a really good transfer.”

Cesko is a priority target in Erik ten Hag’s attack, with the Dutchman desperate to add some firepower to his forward line.

Chelsea lost Romelu Lukaku to Inter Milan this summer and are also short of a main striker.

Seško is a 6ft 4in forward who has already made 13 appearances for Slovenia, scoring two goals, having only turned 19 in May this year.

He scored 11 goals in all competitions last season and registered the only goal in a pre-season friendly against Liverpool.

“It’s probably too early in the summer for him, but every club is looking at the price Liverpool paid for Darwin Nunes and thinks it could cost them an extra £20m if they wait another 12 months,” a source recently revealed iNews.

“Salzburg need Cesko for the Champions League, they don’t encourage selling. But it’s another thing if the player is not for sale and they will listen to offers.”

Salzburg are the reigning champions of the Austrian Bundesliga, which they have won every year since 2013-14.
