Laird is poised to join Watford, who were relegated back to the Championship at the end of last season, on a temporary deal. The 20-year-old has given his assent to the move, which should go through imminently.
New United manager Erik ten Hag has been shaking up the full-back ranks at Old Trafford since he arrived at the club. He has signed Tyrell Malacia from Feyenoord to compete with Luke Shaw, shelling out an initial £12.7m.
Sharing the latest, Luckhurst tweeted: “Ethan Laird set to join Watford on loan. Likely move doesn’t secure Wan-Bissaka’s future, with #mufc open to signing a right-back if they can shift him”.
In the attached article, the reporter adds that United have rebuffed any approaches for Dalot but are ‘eager’ to offload Wan-Bissaka.
You can understand why Ten Hag isn’t too keen on Wan-Bissaka, whose contribution going forwards may be regarded as insufficient after he failed to register a single assist in any competition last season.
Who could United target if they do manage to offload the former Crystal Palace right-back?
