Manchester United put in a very impressive performance against Crystal Palace last night as they secured a 3-1 win, thanks to a brace from Romelu Lukaku and an Ashley Young goal.
The Red Devils won’t accept anything less than a top four spot in the current campaign, having come on leaps and bounds under the guidance of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Interestingly, it appears as if the Manchester club have joined the race for a Premier League player, as according to talkSPORT, Manchester United have identified Aaron Wan-Bissaka as a summer transfer target.
It’s safe to say that right-back is a position that needs strengthening at this moment in time and Wan-Bissaka is a special talent, so surely signing him can only mean good things.
With that being said, here are the potential consequences of signing the Englishman…
WOODWARD LANDS VALENCIA REPLACEMENT
Ed Woodward has splashed the cash on a number of big-name signings in years gone by, but securing the services of Aaron Wan-Bissaka could turn out to be one of his most important pieces of business in recent times.
Indeed, Antonio Valencia’s contract is set to expire at the end of the season and he is unlikely to be offered a new one, with Watford and West Ham United interested (as per The Mirror) in signing him.
So, Woodward would land a potential replacement for Valencia in the form of Wan-Bissaka.
DEFENCE ALMOST COMPLETE
Manchester United chopped and changed things at the back during the first half of the season, but nothing really worked out until Ole Gunnar Solskjaer rocked up at Old Trafford.
Of course, the Red Devils’ back line is far from complete as they could do with bringing in a world-class central defender and a right-back, with Ashley Young and Antonio Valencia getting on with age.
Therefore, securing the services of Wan-Bissaka would almost complete Manchester United’s defence, with Luke Shaw and Victor Lindelof both impressing at left-back and centre-back respectively, so all that would be needed to complete United’s defence is another quality central defender.
