United aren’t the only club who are set to miss out – Tottenham Hotspur, Chelsea and Manchester City are also believed to be interested in the player.

According to the Independent, clubs will need to make an offer of at least £35 million for Brighton to even consider selling Ferguson – even then, they would be likely to turn it down.

His most recent contract with the Seagulls was signed in October of 2022 – clearly, the hierarchy at the Falmer Stadium sees no end of potential in this young man.
