Lots of Manchester United fans gushed over Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s chart-topping statistic.
According to WhoScored, the defender has the best tackle success rate ahead of his closest rivals in the Premier League this season, achieving a high percentage of 83.9%.
Having moved to Old Trafford from Crystal Palace for just shy of £50m last summer, Wan-Bissaka has played in 29 games in the English top flight under club legend Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, creating 2 assists, making a whopping 3.8 tackles per game, averaging 2 interceptions, and successfully completing 1.9 clearances on average (WhoScored).
Despite his impressive performances on the right flank, the 22-year-old is still yet to receive a call up to Gareth Southgate’s national team, although he has won 3 caps for the England U-21s so far (Transfermarkt).
His current market value is estimated at £28.8m, and while there is no doubt his defensive shifts will have caught the eye of potential bidders, the Englishman’s contract is set to expire in 2024, and the board have the option to extend this agreement for a further year.
Popular fan site UtdReport shared the update via social media, prompting plenty of replies from the United faithful. One fan noted he will form a “formidable partnership” with long-time transfer target Jadon Sancho, and another simply added “what a player.”
Take a look at some of the best reactions down below…
