Manchester United: Dean Jones makes Aaron Wan-Bissaka exit claim

Manchester United: Dean Jones makes Aaron Wan-Bissaka exit claim -Follow up

Transfer insider Dean Jones has made a bold claim surrounding the future of Manchester United defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka. 

The lowdown: An expensive disappointment

Signed for £50million from Crystal Palace (BBC), Wan-Bissaka arrived at Old Trafford with great expectations of a long and fruitful career.

However, the 24-year-old energetic right-back has struggled to recapture the form that earned the big-money move in the first place in 126 outings for the Red Devils.

Now, as Erik ten Hag gets his own feet under the table in Manchester, having lost his place to Diogo Dalot last season it could be the end of the road for the former England youth international.

The latest: Jose watching on

Linked elsewhere with a return to Palace, speaking to Give Me Sport, Jones has claimed that ex-United manager Jose Mourinho is interested in taking Wan-Bissaka to AS Roma.

He said: “At a time when there aren’t many genuine paths for Wan-Bissaka, I’m hearing that there is genuine interest from Roma so that could be an interesting one that would help Ten Hag make space in an area that needs improving quickly.”

Manchester United fans, do you remember who scored your first goal of the 21/22 season?

The verdict: Cash in

Albeit Ten Hag has inherited a squad with far from an embarrassment of riches in the defensive department, allowing Wan-Bissaka to move on to pastures new would free up space and bring in funds to allow the Dutchman to pursue his own targets.

Having played a key role in the development of Bayern Munich-bound Noussair Mazraoui, Ten Hag is likely to implement attack-minded full-backs for the new-look Red Devils’ squad, a bill that the three-cap England Under 21 international will struggle to fit based on what has been seen since arriving at Old Trafford.

Last term, Wan-Bissaka – who was lauded as ‘top class’ by Ally McCoist based on his defensive acumen – failed to contribute directly to a single goal in 26 appearances across all competitions, successfully finding a teammate with only 0.4 crosses on average per game in the league, far less than his counterpart on the opposite side Luke Shaw, who was successful with 1.4 of his deliveries.

Valued at £27million and under contract until 2024 (Transfermarkt), selling the London-born ace this summer would still make for a worthwhile windfall as United cut their losses and admit a minor defeat.
