Manchester United summer transfer target Benjamin Sesko showed exactly what the Red Devils are missing out on when he scored a wonder goal for Slovenia against Sweden on Tuesday night.

United showed significant interest in the 19-year-old during the recent transfer window, but he has opted to join RB Leipzig next summer instead, and is currently playing in his final season at Red Bull Salzburg.

Despite not turning 20 until next May, Sesko has already established himself in the Slovenian national team, and he scored his fourth goal for his country in spectacular fashion.

With the game goalless in the 28th minute, Petar Stojanovic played a lofted crossfield pass towards the left-hand side of the penalty box.

Running onto it at pace, Sesko showed tremendous technique to hit a stunning left-foot volley back across goal and into the far corner.

Wheeling away towards the corner of the pitch to celebrate, Sesko even appeared to be in slight shock himself that he had managed to pull off such a difficult skill.

The rising star is continuing to go from strength to strength and has now scored in each of his last three international appearances.

He has also made a fast start to the domestic season, scoring four goals in nine league matches in Austria.

Sesko has featured in both of Salzburg’s Champions League matches, which have seen his team hold AC Milan and Chelsea to 1-1 draws.

He appears to have the world at his feet at such a young age, and United may already be ruing missing out on securing his signature over the summer.
