According to a recent update provided by journalist Fabrizio Romano, Manchester United are continuing their pursuit to find a new club for their underutilized right back Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
The 25-year-old player was brought in as a high-priced transfer (£50 million) in 2019, with some predicting that he would become an England defender in the near future. However, things have not worked out as expected so far.
Wan-Bissaka has found himself virtually increasingly frozen out at Old Trafford over the course of time. The situation has gotten so bad for him that he has just played four minutes of Premier League football so far this season.
It is quite evident that Erik ten Hag does not consider him to be a part of his long-term plans, and it appears highly likely that he will leave the organization either in January or during the summer.
Romano took to Twitter to disclose that Manchester United are still putting in a lot of effort to get a trade sorted out, despite the fact that other other English clubs are interested in signing Wan-Bissaka:
Wan-future Bissaka’s at Manchester United is uncertain as the club works to find a way to facilitate the player’s departure. Crystal Palace, Wolves, and West Ham United are still considering it.
Wan-Bissaka is one of those players who, for whatever reason, is unable to meet the demands of playing for a club of United’s stature or is just not at the requisite level. This has been the situation with Wan-Bissaka.
Although there may have been some random strong performances thrown in – teammate Victor Lindelof has dubbed him ‘amazing’ – the Red Devils spent over the odds to get him, and while his lack of technical ability has sometimes stood out, the Red Devils paid over the odds to have him.
It is essential for Wan-career Bissaka’s that United sell him as soon as possible so that he may take on a new challenge and get off the salary bill at Old Trafford. Wan-career Bissaka’s would benefit greatly from United selling him as soon as feasible.
Erik ten Hag says Manchester United’s performance statistics shows they’re improving
United is sixth in the Premier League with a game in hand after winning eight of 14 games, drawing two, and losing four.
United have only lost one of their last 12 matches despite losing four league games and allowing 10 goals at Manchester City and Brentford. From his observations, Ten Hag thinks the team plays like him.
“I knew it would be a challenging project,” Ten Hag told British journalists at the squad’s training camp in Spain. Manchester United was not in the circumstances you would anticipate of them and I think now we’re in the right path but we’re far from where we need to be.
“Observation and data show progress. Data? About our playstyle.
“I see us growing and now the primary objective is to get back on track since they come back from the World Cup with different styles and systems.
We played differently versus Man City because we wanted to be powerful and assertive. In this World Cup, several teams are waiting and playing on reactions.
“Players come back and they have been playing six weeks in a different atmosphere and another style of play and then they have to get back to our style and system and our rules and principles and it’s a team sport. All XI must agree.”
United won their next four games, including triumphs over Liverpool and Arsenal at Old Trafford, after Ten Ha’s generational nadir at Brentford.
Ten Hag has had to deal with Cristiano Ronaldo’s indiscretion, his bitter departure, and fans’ expectations in his first year as United manager.
“Actually both didn’t disturb me,” Ten Hag said, praising his treatment of Ronaldo.
We were too bad at the outset of the season. When I arrived, I knew we would lose days like that.
We were unlucky because [Victor] Lindelof and [Anthony] Martial were injured in our last pre-season game” (against Atletico Madrid). Then you have to change. Games can be lost.
I wasn’t happy. These things would happen.”
