Fulham are demanding huge money for superkid Patrick Roberts.

The Sunday Mirror says Fulham have slapped a £15million price tag on their teenage sensation Roberts in an attempt to ward off Manchester United.

United have expressed a firm interest in the 17-year-old forward, who played a starring role as England won the European Under-17 Championship this week . Roberts signed a two-and-a-half-year professional contract with the Craven Cottage club after turning 17 in February but he has been tracked by United throughout his time in the Fulham youth system.

Fulham boss Felix Magath, aware of United’s interest, has told Roberts he expects him to be a regular first-teamer in the Championship next season.
