Manchester United: Erik ten Hag may keep Aaron Wan-Bissaka

Manchester United: Erik ten Hag may keep Aaron Wan-Bissaka - Follow up

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag may opt to keep hold of Aaron Wan-Bissaka this summer, according to Sky Sports reporter Dharmesh Sheth.

The Lowdown: Wan-Bissaka’s improved form

The 25-year-old hasn’t always hit the heights many expected of him in a United shirt, with Diogo Dalot gradually becoming the first-choice right-back at Old Trafford.

An injury to the Portuguese ace has afforded Wan-Bissaka more playing time of late, however, and he has completed a full 90 minutes seven times since the turn of the year.

The Englishman has been linked with a United exit this summer but now a very different rumour is doing the rounds.

The Latest: Defender could now stay

Speaking to Give Me Sport, Sheth claimed that Ten Hag’s stance on Wan-Bissaka may have changed:

“The right-back situation has been an ever-changing one over the last couple of transfer windows. It looked like Aaron Wan-Bissaka was gone, not only in the summer but in January as well. But, post-World Cup, I think his performances have maybe changed Erik ten Hag’s mind.

“They probably still would be in the market if a fantastic right-back came along at the right price.

The Verdict: Should United still sell?

Wan-Bissaka deserves great praise for the manner in which he has found some improved form for United, being hailed as ‘absolutely fantastic’ by pundit Micky Gray.

Cristiano Ronaldo of Manchester United

MUFC fans, do you remember what year Cristiano Ronaldo signed the first time?

While the temptation to keep hold of him is now obvious, especially as he is still only 25, this summer could still be the best time to move him on, receiving good money for his services.

Dalot needs to be first-choice, when fit, considering his all-round game is better – he has two Premier League assists this season compared to his teammate’s zero – and a superior backup could also then come in as a replacement.

The idea of Wan-Bissaka staying is certainly no disaster for United, but his upturn in fortunes may have upped his price tag, allowing them to cash in before it potentially drops again.
