Three-way Prem battle looming for Roberts’ signature

Fulham starlet Patrick Roberts is the centre of a three-way tug of war between Manchester City, Manchester United and Arsenal.

Roberts, 17, has had an impressive start to the season despite the troubles at Craven Cottage, and seems set for a big move, even though the striker’s contract runs until 2016.

The troubled West London club recently sacked manager Felix Magath, and could now be about lose one of their brightest young talents.

Manchester United were linked with a £15M move in the summer, but the Old Trafford club were scared off by Fulham’s valuation.

Now though, with the struggles the club are currently facing, it is thought a £10M fee might be enough for the Cottagers to part ways with the young forward.

Roberts has represented England at Under-16 and Under-17 levels. He played an integral role in England’s victory at the 2014 European Under-17 Championship in Malta, scoring several impressive goals, grabbing a number of assists and being named in the team of the tournament.
