Manchester United’s continued search for new players gathered pace this last week when they finally completed the signing of Welsh winger Daniel James.
The Red Devils, along with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, are desperate to add new players to a squad which has struggled to compete in the last few seasons, and it’s clear that Solskjaer is keen on bringing in young, exciting players rather than those who are simply coming for the money.
United have been linked with a big money move for Crystal Palace star Aaron Wan-Bissaka, but as the Eagles continue to play hard-ball over their teenage defender, another teenager has emerged as a transfer target for the Old Trafford club in the form of Norwich City man, Max Aarons.
Aarons burst onto the scene last season and cemented the right back slot as his own at Carrow Road, contributing an impressive six assists and two goals across the course of the campaign.
The right back slot is very much up for grabs too at Old Trafford, with the long-serving Antonio Valencia moving on to pastures new, while Matteo Darmian continues to be linked with a move away from United.
For Aarons then, there might never be a better time for him to make the move to the north-west, with the opportunity to nail down a spot in the United first-team for years to come something he might not be able to turn down.
Aarons showed more than enough last season both defensively and in an attacking sense, with his interception, clearance and tackling stats all impressive enough for such a young defender making his way in the game.
United are desperate to land someone to make the right back slot their own, and rather than splashing the huge amounts quoted for Wan-Bissaka, we think that Aarons might well be a cheaper and in the long-term, a better alternative.Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
